Walkhome will be operating at a reduced capacity until further notice. Security will provide a physical walk when available. If not, Student Dispatchers who are staffed from 4:00 pm to midnight seven days per week, will support Walkhome by providing an over the phone escort – in which the Dispatcher will stay on the phone with the student as they travel to their destination, and the Dispatcher will help direct them to travel on well-lit paths. After midnight the office phones are forwarded to the security cell phone.
We are currently seeking volunteers to carry out safe walks, if you are interested in joining our team please go to the "How to Volunteer" tab

Trent Walkhome is a student volunteer-based program that provides a safe alternative to walking alone at night. The Walkhome program is designed to walk students, faculty and staff members both on the Symons Campus, the Annexes and downtown at Traill.
With the support of numerous volunteers, Walkhome operates during the September-April school year (except for holidays and Reading Breaks).
Volunteers are recruited among the undergraduate and graduate student body and have completed a screening process and training program in order to provide a high standard of service.
Volunteer applications can be completed at:
MyTrent -> Services -> Getting Around--> Walkhome Volunteer Application or dropped off at CC 306.
Contact the Guard at 905-435-5111 to arrange an on-campus walk.
