We have modified our services for the duration of the COVID-19 outbreak. Current Foot Patrol
services include:

Walk and Talk phone line* (613-520-4449):

and want someone to talk to! Available 6:00 PM – 2:00 AM, 7 days a week.

and will be disabled once regular services resume.

Other Resources:
Foot Patrol’s Crisis and Support Resources Guide offers a convenient list of both on and off-campus resources available to Carleton students and the greater Ottawa community. Please note that some service information may be inaccurate as resources have not been verified since the COVID-19 pandemic began.

Foot Patrol’s safe walk and Guardian event team services will be restarted after on-campus
classes are deemed safe to resume by Carleton University.
