Rave Guardian User Guide

At a regional campus?

You can use the Rave Guardian app. However, in an emergency, please use the "Call 9-1-1" option. This will be the fastest way to connect you with local authorities, while also alerting our public safety officers to your situation.

What are some of the app’s features?

Panic Button

In the event of and emergency, a special button on your mobile device can immediately connect to public safety, and information about you, such as your GPS location, is automatically displayed.

Virtual Safety Net

As a user, you can create a virtual safety network of friends, roommates, family members, and campus safety. Each person will be set up as a “personal guardian.” This network of people can check in on you when you’re using the app’s safety timer.

Safety Timer

The safety timer can help make sure you get where you’re going safely. Once activated, your personal guardians can monitor your status updates and location, and be notified at assigned check-in times. If the timer expires, or you initiate a panic call, the app will automatically notify trusted safety resources on campus.

Anonymous Tips

You can communicate anonymously via two-way messaging with Department of Public Safety officials. Text and photo content is securely transmitted via Rave's geo-redundant public-safety grade infrastructure.

Optional Safety Profile

You can choose to fill out a “safety profile,” which will include information like your residence details and medical conditions. Whether you’re on or off the campus, this profile will automatically be presented to officials during an emergency call for a faster, more precise response.
