Pedestrian Safety

Due to increased reports of students walking across University Avenue, the University Police Department reminds students they must use the pedestrian tunnel to cross University Avenue. The tunnel is located by the Pennington Activity Center and provides a safe passage across the busy avenue. Crossing a roadway without a marked crosswalk is dangerous and unlawful. Accordingly, University Police may issue citations to any student found doing so.

To promote student safety, we urge you to LION UP when walking on campus and remember to
only cross streets at designated crosswalks:

Look both ways before crossing at crosswalks

Initiate eye contact with drivers entering roadways

Obey traffic rules, signs, and signals

Never assume a driver will give you the right of way

Use the pedestrian tunnel when crossing University Ave

Put down your phone and remove headphones to be alert of surroundings.
