At UFV, you’ll find everything from chem labs to classrooms to construction zones. Wherever you are — in a conference room, your favourite study spot, or walking across the parking lot — we are committed to making sure you feel safe and secure.
The Risk & Safety team encourages employees, faculty, students, and visitors to explore and make use of the resources within this website. Please help us create a culture where we all look out for each other’s safety and manage risks well.

New Safewalk signs
Request a security escort for any reason, any time of day.
UFV's Safewalk program is available 24/7 to any member of the UFV community who would like an escort to any location on our campuses. You can book your Safewalk escort ahead of time, or at a moment's notice — Security is happy to help either way.
