Is the University safe?

Home / Help and advice / Getting here and getting in touch / Our campuses / Is the University safe?

Yes – our Security Team are here 24/7, and have extensive CCTV to maintain security on campus (and in halls of residence).

We run Campus Watch in an effort to make students feel safe, on and around campus. We even have a campus police officer.

The UK’s Race Relations Act is one of the most comprehensive laws against racial discrimination in the world and the University has a zero-tolerance policy against discrimination and abuse. We have a formal procedure to assist any member of staff or student who feels they have been discriminated against.
