We provide a range of security services on our campuses, including around-the-clock security patrols and control-room surveillance, security safety escorts and security buses to get you around our larger campuses safely in the evenings.
Whatever campus you're on, you call the same emergency number, so put it in your phone or somewhere handy. You'll also find emergency help points on all campuses to call us if you don't have a phone.
If you have a general enquiry, want a security safety escort or want to make a report, you call the same general security number on any campus, so make a note of it too.
Security patrols – 24/7
Our security officers patrol our campuses on foot, bicycles and in cars 24 hours a day, seven days a week to provide a safe and secure environment for all our students, staff and visitors.
Security control room – 24/7
Control-room staff can monitor security cameras, electronic access points, and intruder and emergency alarms on all our campuses, all hours of the day and night. Our security cameras record images and recognise vehicle licence plate numbers. The University's investment in effective technology helps to prevent incidents and respond to them quickly.
If, at any time, you want a security officer to walk with you anywhere on campus, call the general security number to arrange a security safety escort.

Report what you see
Good safety and security depends on people noticing what's going on around them and reporting serious or unusual incidents, so if you see something, say something.
If you're concerned about your own or someone else's safety, are the victim of a crime or just want some security advice, call our emergency or general security number (at the top right of the page) any time of the day or night.
