Harvard University Campus Escort Program

The Harvard University Campus Escort Program (HUCEP) is a campus safety program developed by Harvard College in partnership with the Harvard University Police Department. HUCEP teams, who are trained and supervised by the Harvard University Police Department, provide walking escorts to students, faculty and staff seven nights a week during the academic year and cover the Yard, River, Quad, and North Yard areas. Teams are made up of two undergraduate and/or graduate students and identified by their brightly colored vests, labeled HUCEP. Escorts respond to both calls for service through the HUCEP hotline (4-8237 or 38H-UCEP), and by being flagged down by students, faculty and staff in need of an escort. The Communications Center is also able to communicate with the Shuttle Van Service if necessary when the walking escort service will be delayed.

All calls for walking escorts are received at the Harvard University Police Department's Communications Center who maintains direct communication via radio with the student escort teams. The Communications Center is also able to communicate with the Shuttle Van Service if necessary when the walking escort service will be delayed.

The hours of operation for HUCEP are 10:30pm-2:00am, Sunday through Wednesday, and 10:30pm-3:00am Thursday through Saturday.
