Campus police issued a community safety alert today following reports of multiple robberies in and around UTSG.

Queen’s Park, the intersection of College Street and Spadina Avenue, and the intersection of Willcocks Street and Huron Street were noted as particular areas of concern.

Safety recommendations include using the TravelSafer program, in which a special constable or security guard would accompany students at night.

“Please be aware of your surroundings and take precautions when you must walk alone,” reads the statement.
