On Thursday the annual campus night safety walk will begin at 5:30 p.m. The walk brings community members together with University of Oregon staff to observe the areas of campus that need to be safer.

The walk will begin in the Cedar and Spruce rooms in the EMU, with a short discussion of past projects and the route for the walk, according to a press release from UOPD spokesmen Kelly McIver.

The walk is hosted by multiple different campus organizations including ASUO, the Dean of Students and UOPD. Pizza will be offered to people who stick around to the end.

The walk lets attendees inform Staff from Campus Planning and Facilities Management of areas around campus that could be made safer for pedestrians on campus at night. Afterwards, the staff members will prioritize the recommendations and work to secure funding to address the issues.

In addition to the night walk, the University has introduced a new feature for the interactive UO campus map that lets people view what the map looks like at night and where the lighted paths and emergency boxes are on campus.
