UC Hastings provides daily van escorts and the UCSF Police Department provides “walking” escorts to the UC Hastings community. To add to the safety of our community, the UCSF Police Department also patrols the streets around the College buildings in the evenings.
The van escort service runs 7 days a week from 5:00 PM until 11:30 PM, or until the Library closes. During daylight savings time and when the library is open, escort van hours begin at 6:00 PM until 11:30 PM or until the library closes, 7 days a week.
When the buildings are scheduled to close, the last van escort occurs 15 minutes after that time. The van leaves 200 McAllister Street every thirty minutes as needed (5:00 PM, 5:30 PM, etc.).
Because Daylight Savings Time results in longer periods of sunlight, the van escort service is intended to provide coverage during the hours of darkness when the Hastings Library is open. There are no escort services available on days the buildings are closed.
Complete details of the escort service are available at the 200 and 198 McAllister Street Public Safety desks.
The police officers also provide “walking” escorts from each campus building to another, the Civic Center Bart/Muni underground station, Muni bus stops in the surrounding area, and to and from nearby parking lots.
Dial extension 4611 or 415-565-4611, or request in person with security in the lobbies of the 100/198/200 McAllister buildings.
