Security services

The University's Security Service operates 24 hours a day, every day of the year. We offer crime prevention advice, patrol the campus, investigate crimes and respond to alarms and emergencies.

Download the SafeZone app so you can get support quickly from the University Security Service if you need it. This is an app that everyone on campus can use to ask for help. It is there to give you extra peace of mind in addition to the other support offered by the University. It is linked to the University's Security Team who are on call to help you 24/7. 

The app is free, easy to use and can help with physical or mental health incidents, non-emergency and emergency situations. 


We are here to help throughout the day, including outside office hours, and offer a range of security services to include:

  • initial response to alarms and emergency situations
  • investigating, recording and analysing crimes and incidents
  • crime prevention advice
  • uniformed security patrols and static guarding both with and without the use of dogs
  • plain clothes security officers
  • lost and found property system
  • briefings to staff and students on personal and property security
  • a 24 hour monitoring service for all networked closed circuit television cameras and University alarm systems
  • event and venue security for University functions including access control and guarding
  • management information on crime figures and trends as they affect the University
  • security services on a 'charged' basis for non-academic activity on University property
  • other specialist support as necessary or required.
