We have a really safe campus but it’s important that you feel safe and secure all the time. To ensure our campus remains a safe place to study, work and socialise we have a dedicated security team, who work out of the Security Hub in the Harold Wilson Building, Main Entrance.
The Security Hub is open and staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, monitoring CCTV and to provide security advice and assistance. This includes when you are out and about in town in the evening – if you feel unsafe in any way just go the Control Hub and the Security staff will help and advise, including calling a taxi to help you get home.
The Security Hub telephone number: 01484 472220 (internal university phones extension 2220)

University buildings are generally accessible between the hours of 8.00am – 6.00pm, Monday to Friday. Student Central is open until 10pm Monday to Friday and at weekends, so you can access the Student Union, Sports Centre and the SU Shop. Library Services publish their own access times, as they vary depending on the time of year.
Outside of these hours, buildings are automatically secured, but you may have card access to buildings in relation to your School or course. You can request access to specific areas in addition to those already granted by contacting your School Manager/Course Leader who will have to authorise your request.
Your student ID card is also your swipe access card and your means to move securely around the campus, allowing access to the library and certain buildings.
