Community Safety

Your Community Safety team is here to look out for you on campus.

We do this in many ways – patrolling the grounds, following up reports from students and staff, and through our new drop-in service at the Community Safety Hub.

You’ll recognise us when we’re out and about, wearing our Community Safety Team royal blue uniforms. If you see us, please do stop to say hello.We have close links with other emergency services in the area, including West Midlands Police, and campus even has its very own police officer for added reassurance. We’re based in the Community Safety Hub in the North Lodge, along with two police community support officers and the Safety Team.
