Student Walk Home Attendant Team (SWHAT)

You don't ever have to walk home alone at night thanks to these volunteers.  The Student Walk Home Attendant Team (SWHAT) is a volunteer service within the McMaster Students Union that will walk or bus with students during the evening hours 7 days a week. No matter the weather, our walkers can walk with you to your destination while providing safety and company (we also have umbrellas to help keep you dry!).
SWHAT is run by student volunteers. When you call us, you will be joined by a team of two walkers, one male and female. They will not have obvious uniforms, but name tags for identification. As well, all walkers are equipped with a flashlight and a radio to allow communication with the SWHAT office and McMaster Security as required.
