General Information and Guidelines

  • From 8:00 A.M.-8:30 P.M., regardless of weather conditions, students are expected to walk to and from places on or near campus, including the Dow Center, Burns St apartments, Munger Apartments, Harrington School, Washington Gardner building, and the downtown area. Exceptions may be made for students with medical conditions as approved by the Accessibility Services staff member.
  • Campus Safety transportation services are primarily intended for students without vehicles on campus who live in College housing. Students who have vehicles on campus and students who live off-campus are expected to use their vehicles for their own transportation needs off-campus. Students who live off-campus are also expected to make their own transportation arrangements.
  • Campus Safety offers transportation for students to businesses within the City of Albion (excluding the downtown area) everyday of the week from 12 P.M. – 6 P.M. To receive this transportation, students should call Campus Safety or stop by the Campus Safety office during those times.
  • Campus Safety officers have many responsibilities, the most important of which is to provide initial response to emergencies that occur on campus. Transportation for students may be delayed or cancelled in the event of one of those situations.
  • Non-emergency requests for service, such as transports and admittances, are normally provided in the order they are received.

Additional Safety Measures and Guidelines in Place

To ensure the safety of students and Campus Safety staff, the following guidelines and procedures have been put in place.

  • Protective plastic barriers have been installed in all Campus Safety vehicles to limit exposure between the driver and passengers.
  • Campus Safety vehicles will be regularly sanitized, including between passengers.
  • The driver and all passengers will wear masks at all times while in a Campus Safety vehicle.
  • Students who have symptoms of COVID-19 who require medical transportation should inform the Campus Safety dispatcher when they call to arrange for a ride
