How you can help us keep you safe
In the last few years, we have made significant changes to improve your safety around campus resulting in a 71% reduction in crime across our campus over the last four years. We are continually developing ways to keep you safe.
For cyclists, we have secure storage areas dotted across main campus where you can lock your bike up. If you study at MediaCity, then they have recently opened a brand new cycle hub where you can store your bike for as cheap as £100 a year. If you come in by car, there are lots of places to park. Find out about all our car parks here.
Our friendly security team are also here to help. Based in the Maxwell building, they always welcome visits from yourselves and give out free personal safety packs. They’d love to see you, just ask for the Security Team at Maxwell reception during office hours (Monday-Friday, 9.00am-5.00pm), or go via the intercom, which can be found in the Maxwell Well under the Maxwell building on the right-hand side, outside of normal hours. They’ve just added four new security engagement officers to their team, so there is always someone to help you.
The team also have their very own security shop where they sell personal safety items at a fraction of the cost you’d usually pay. Visit the shop and you can get a gold standard cycle lock for just £15 and a hi-visibility jacket for £3.
Look after your personal belongings on campus as you would in any busy place - don’t leave your bags and personal items on show, or unattended. Our campus is a safe place but acting as you would in any metropolitan area can help us, help you.
