Rave Guardian is an app for the K-State community that provides a direct connection to K-State police and other resources so that everyone can easily communicate all their safety needs. Its easy-to-use features help you and your friends stay safe every day.
Rave Guardian app features include:
- One-click emergency dial to 9-1-1.
- "Safe Walk" virtual campus safety escort: Set a virtual safety timer and share with friend and family, or an Official Guardian. Includes the option to give helpful information such as where you are going and stops you may make.
- Two-way text communication with campus police: Share information and safety concerns with K-State police via chat with the option to stay anonymous.
- Call directory with campus resources: Place a direct call to campus resources and support services with the option to share your location with safety officials during the call.
- Campus alerts and updates: Receive alerts based on your location, even when you don't have a cell signal.

The phone numbers added by K-Staters to receive text/call alerts will appear in the Guardian app, but to modify or change these numbers, users must log in to K-State Connect and select the K-State Alerts tab under the Profile section.
