5-SURE: Students United for Risk Elimination

5-SURE facilitates the prevention of risk by providing escorts to and from a variety of campus locations, ranging from parties and sporting events to campus residences, libraries and department buildings. When calling 5-SURE, riders can help by being ready for pickup. 5-SURE asks that people keep an eye out for our vehicle with the 5-SURE logo on the side or the green light on our golf carts. All riders should be mindful that there are others waiting for the use of our security escort service.

Because criminals do not discriminate based on age, sex, ethnicity or otherwise, neither does 5-SURE. Everyone in the Stanford University community may utilize our services.  We want to reduce and eliminate crimes such as theft, assault, stalking and rape that may occur while traveling about campus at night. We welcome any feedback, service-oriented workers, and opportunities to aid the greater Stanford community.

Call 5-SURE: 650-725-SURE (650-725-7873). For more information, click here
