RAVE Guardian is a safety service provided to you by Virginia State University. It allows you to contact the Police directly and within seconds.

To use Guardian, you must first fill out a Guardian profile. You should also review your Guardian profile periodically to ensure it is up to date.

The RAVE Guardian App allows individuals to notify people you trust to check in on you if you are alone or in an unfamiliar place and call safety officials directly for help if you are in trouble and send text tips – including photos – if you see something suspicious.
