Your safety is the most important.

Sidekick helps students travel safely around campus by connecting them with fellow students. 

How it works

Find friends

Connect with students in your area headed in the same direction.

Meet up

Get together at your selected meeting point & time.

Travel safely

Travel to your desired location safely while meeting new friends.


Sidekick is an app that allows students to coordinate in-person commutes with one another to increase safety and alleviate stress. Our mission is to create a safer world by bringing people together.​

Sidekick only matches you with fellow students, who verify their student status by signing up with an .edu email account. We also monitor each walk and make sure you get to your destination safely.

Due to privacy and safety concerns, users’ exact locations are always hidden, however you are still able to see if someone is in your general area. 

Have an idea to make us better or a question we didn’t answer? We’d love to hear from you.
