Campus safety is obviously a hot topic. Keeping college students safe and making college campuses safer is a top priority for higher education institutions but also one of the hardest problems to solve.

The issue lies in the disconnect between students and their campus police departments. Students don’t care about their personal safety and often have a lack of respect/trust for their campus police departments. Because of these reasons, current campus safety applications struggle with lack of utilization rates due to an inability to instate behavioral change in users. Universities need an innovative way to engage their students and students need an app that they will actually use.

Knightly solves both of those problems. Knightly is a social safety app that keeps students safe wherever and whenever. On a late-night walk home or a weekend night out, users can stay connected to their friends via our peer-to-peer safety network. With the touch of a button, your chosen friends will know...

Knightly solves both of those problems. Knightly is a social safety app that keeps students safe wherever and whenever. On a late-night walk home or a weekend night out, users can stay connected to their friends via our peer-to-peer safety network. With the touch of a button, your chosen friends will know where you are, when you get home or if you don’t get home. In an emergency, you can use our app to contact closest emergency services, ensuring your safety in the most effective way possible.

Knightly allows Universities to form more direct and effective communication lines with their student body populations. Campus police departments will be able to track live-emergency Knightly signals on a web dashboard, making dispatching more effective and interactive. With advanced data analysis tools, we can offer campus police a more insightful look into student body populations - i.e. where students feel uncomfortable, when they are going off-campus, what they think will make them safer.

Even though our product is designed for the college student, our customer is the University, because although student’s care, any spare money they have is going towards food and concert tickets. By selling to Universities, we can put safety in the palm of student’s hands at minimum effort and cost to them.

Additionally, our campus services page makes on-campus safety resources more accessible and digestable. Our app becomes an information hub for users by providing answers to all questions about safety. Knightly keeps students informed while giving institutions a inside look into how students interact with their resources. These insights enable campuses to understand their students and implement more effective safety initiatives.
