Our Boundaries

We will walk you anywhere in this area! Our boundaries span ~2.2 km outwards from the Queen’s Centre. For a closer look at these boundaries, visit the Our Boundaries page.

What is Walkhome?

Walkhome is a safe-walk service that provides Queen’s students, staff/faculty, and Kingston community members with a safe, friendly, and comfortable way to travel at night. We offer anonymous, confidential, and discrete walks anywhere within our boundaries. Our staff do not wear any clothing that identifies them as Walkhome and you are not required to disclose any information about your identity (ex: name, address, etc.) if you do not feel comfortable doing so. When you request a walk, a team of two students will meet you at your pickup location and escort you to your location! You can request a walk by approaching our kiosk, which is located in the Queen’s Centre (ARC) at 284 Earl St, by calling us at 613-533-WALK (9255), or by using the live chat button on this website!

Whether you’re hesitant to walk alone at night, are unfamiliar with navigating around Kingston, or just want to have some company to chat with, Walkhome is here for you!
