Cornell’s pioneering Blue Light program promotes and safeguards personal security and well-being on the Cornell campus, particularly at night.

Blue Light Phones 24/7

Use these and campus emergency phones to reach the Cornell Police (255-1111). Call for assistance, information, or to report an emergency.  Pick up any Blue Light phone, or one of the 275 indoor emergency telephones located on campus, for a direct connection to the CU Police.

Blue Light Escort

When a Blue Light Escort is requested, two members of the Cornell University Police Auxiliary accompany any member of the Cornell community or visitor to destinations on campus or near campus. If you are riding a bus, they will wait with you at the stop until the bus arrives. Blue Light Escorts are members of the Cornell community hired and trained by Cornell Police. Each escort wears a highly visible uniform and is in direct radio contact with Cornell Police.

To request an escort team, call 255.7373 on campus (607.255.7373 outside the campus system), or use one of the Blue Light phones on campus. The service operates from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. every day during the fall and spring semesters.

Two Blue Light Bus Routes

TCAT's Blue Light bus routes 92 and 93 serve central campus, residence halls, outer parking lots, and Collegetown seven nights a week, 6:30 p.m.–2:30 a.m., during the academic year.

Use your CU ID when boarding and pay no fare. For complete route and schedule information, check TCAT's web site.
