As of Saturday April 4th, 2020, goSAFE is suspending service at the Keele and Glendon campuses.
If you would like a walking escort please call Security Services at 416-650-8000 and they will send their folks to walk with you.

Who We Are

goSAFE is one of the largest student employers on campus, and gives students the opportunity to give back to the York community while also earning money for their education.  goSAFE is staffed entirely by York University students, easily identifiable in their red jackets or goSAFE and YorkU branded polo shirts.

What We Do

goSAFE teams accompany York community members to and from any on-campus location, such as the Village Shuttle pick-up hub, parking lots, bus stops or residences. Upon request, goSAFE staff will gladly wait with you until your bus or transportation arrives or your car starts, and will strive to meet you at your pick-up location within 10 minutes of your call.

In addition to escorting students, staff and faculty around campus, goSAFE staff conduct weekly audits of all of the on-campus exterior lighting, on-campus automatic doors, and on-campus emergency and elevator phones, reporting any malfunctions for repair.
