WalkSafe is the key to student safety both on and off campus

Our WalkSafe Pro system can be personalised to each University with Geo-fences for specialised content as well utilising all of safety map features. It also allows the students to share journeys with University security teams, or our 24 hour monitoring partner; Lodge Services. Your university security team or the Lodge Security team will have live up-to-date location information to assist in dealing with an incident either on or off campus.

Our award winning free app; WalkSafe+ shows SafeSpaces locally so that students can plan safer nights out, while also sharing their journeys with friends and family, it automatically alerts if they don’t get to their destination on time.

Our package also maps the live location of the university security patrols and student Angels so that students can quickly see where they can seek help should they need it. WalkSafe Pro is simple to use and allows unlimited users making it inexpensive to run. 

A New City For New Students

Navigating uni and a new city safely is a daunting experience for new students; let’s help make student life at the University of Portsmouth exciting and safe, together.


WalkSafe can help international students and those moving from their hometowns to feel comfortable in Portsmouth and feel at ease, with local police stations, taxi ranks, police stations, Street Pastors or marshals and safe spaces mapped all in one place.

  • Don’t know where the accredited safe places in town are located
  • Don’t yet have trusted friends to share journeys with and check they are safe
  • Can’t remember emergency phone numbers
  • Don’t have all their university’s safety and wellbeing resources at their fingertips

How WalkSafe Supports Higher Education

Simple To Use and Inexpensive

Help ensure students get home safely, and allow your security team to respond quickly in an emergency. WalkSafe Pro is designed to fit seamlessly with your 24/7 security control room. Students can share journeys, ETAs, and raise SOS alerts that share their live location when they require immediate assistance to improve efficiency of incident response.

  • Students decide - to share journeys or just their time of arrival
  • Automatic alerts go to the University Monitoring Centre if students do not arrive home on time or activate the SOS button
  • Check-in with students on an ad-hoc basis, individually or in groups

Student Safety Both On and Off Campus

Give your students a personalised experience. Unlike other student safety apps, WalkSafe can be used off campus while also giving students a tailored experience on campus. Essentially, WalkSafe can be personalised to feel like your very own comprehensive personal safety app.

We all know students often don’t keep or remember university emergency contact information, or know how to access support resources. With WalkSafe, they can access all links and contact information in one place bespoke, geo-fences area. Further to that, the top panel on the homepage can be personalised to your university your logo, advertising of events, news or anything else you would to promote.

    Fantastic app

    This is an amazing app – helps me feel safe whenever I’m out alone. Would recommend it for anyone who who wants to always feel safe when out alone day or night.


  • Gemma Magee

    Great app!

    Crime rising in my local area, the up to date information helps me plan my safest route home.

    The trusted friends feature was easy to set up and a great way for me and my girlfriends to ensure we all get home safely.

    No one can predict crime but this has given me a massive feeling of comfort that I can make sure my child is safe and I am safe when I am

    out and about and as a female it’s comforting that I have that support if needed from my husband and family

  • Ellen U

    Amazing reassurance!

    Love knowing what’s happened on my routes when going somewhere new or the same journey I take on a regular basis. Also enjoy having that reassurance in my pocket when making way home late at night or my friends. Instead of panicking when times passed. Thank you!!
