There is a complimentary safety escort shuttle at SU called the "Night Hawk" that operates during the academic year and is available to current university employees and students. The Night Hawk Safety Escort program provides a safe shuttle to travel to and from campus during evening hours within set boundaries around the campus. The shuttle boundary is approximately 6 blocks from campus.
Employees who are registered walkers receive a complementary parking card for five days of parking each month should they need to park on campus. There is a one-time yearly enrollment fee of $10 for this program.
