Policies and Limitations
Limitations of the Campus Escort Service
Our priorities for our patrons are (1) Safety, (2) Education, (3) Social Interaction, and (4) Convenience. We will provide efficient, quality service to students, faculty and staff of the University of Nevada, Reno. To ensure we are best allocating our resources to meet our priorities, we have some restrictions on our service:
- Campus Escort will abide by all State and Federal laws.
- Campus Escort will travel no farther than a predetermined three-mile boundary from the perimeter of the main campus.
- A property or recognized unit of the University of Nevada, Reno (including Greek houses) must be the start or end of a trip.
- No third party commercial business can be the start or end of a trip with the exceptions of Walgreen's (located at 750 N. Virginia St.), the Bus station (located on 4th Street), and the Greyhound station.
- Campus Escort will not pick up or drop off at parties. If any caller or a friend is intoxicated and needs a ride home, he or she should call a cab or plan ahead and designate a sober driver.
- On Friday and Saturday nights, a residence (off-campus or on-campus) may only be a starting point or ending point of a trip. In other words, Campus Escort will not provide a ride from one residence to another on those nights.
Note: Callers who attempt to circumvent policy by requesting pickup or drop-off at a serviceable location with the intention of walking or requesting an escort to another location will be denied service.
Callers who repeatedly attempt to circumvent these policies cause a disruption to the service and will receive a warning from the Director of External Affairs. Continued abuse of the system may result in having Campus Escort privileges revoked.
*The Campus Safety site and all affiliated university sites are divisions of Student Life Services.

- Updates will be sent out through ASUN social media as early as possible

Once service has been shut down, the messages on the Campus Escort online request and the Campus Escort phone will be updated accordingly.
