Rave Guardian


The Cleveland State University Police Department has partnered with Rave Mobile Safety to bring its award winning mobile safety app to the CSU community.

Starting July 1st, the Cleveland State University community can start downloading the free Rave Guardian app. By registering a CSU e-mail address, Students, Faculty, and Staff will have access to Rave Guardian mobile services and will never be further than a button press away from CSU Police. If you require tech support, please contact techsupport@ravemobilesafety.com.

Please also be sure to remove the Viking Shield app from your mobile device as this is no longer functional.

1. Download the app from either iTunes or the Google Play Store (search for “Rave Guardian”) 

Direct Downloads:

2. Enter your mobile phone number and your CSU e-mail address (uses the @csuohio.edu domain in the address).

3. Fill in profile information (only fields marked with * are required)

 4. Explore the app!
