Student Safety

 

Safety Bus

From Monday 3 December, you can get a bus that drops you close to your home with just a small £1 flat fee. The trial service will run for 10 weeks, Monday-Thursday 11pm-3am during term-time. Check out the bus route and times here

 

Patrol Team

Students have highlighted to us that they can sometimes feel unsafe walking through Victoria Park and other parks late at night. To mitigate this we have set up a Patrol Team, so you can walk to your home in groups with other students from the University. Contact your Wellbeing Officer to find our more and get involved.

 

Safe Taxi Scheme

If you have lost your wallet, have no money to get home or have been involved in an accident, the security team can call a taxi for you to get home, which you can pay back to the SU the next day. Contact your Wellbeing Officer to find out more.

 

Student Safety Survey

We want to hear from you. Have you ever felt unsafe at University? Share your personal stories with us so we can collate this, present it to the University and City Council and demand action. Take our survey now.  

 

Lighting and CCTV

We are currently speaking to the University around what can be done to increase the lighting and CCTV coverage in surrounding areas.
