We work hard to provide a safe and secure environment for our students. On campus we’ve over 90 trained and dedicated security service staff on hand to provide help and support 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Please read our personal safety guides to help keep yourself safe on campus and in Glasgow.
Staying safe tips
- Be sure someone knows where you are, when you're due back and how to contact you
- Go out and return home with friends
- Don't accept a lift from anyone you do not know
- Don't leave your drink unattended
- Only use officially registered taxis
Report & Support
A safe campus is the responsibility of everyone who is part of the University community: staff, students and visitors. We all have a responsibility to report if someone’s safety has been threatened, whether that is through inappropriate behaviour, verbal or physical harassment, or other actions that make them feel unsafe, for example threatening posters, stickers or graffiti.
Security staff are all fully trained first-aiders and should be your first call at any time of the day or night. They can also provide assistance and access to the emergency services or police, if necessary.
In case of an emergency outside of the university premises, you should dial 999.
Student Help Zone
A new Student Help Zone has been launched in Glasgow to help students who find themselves in vulnerable situations. We're supporting the venture, run by Police Scotland and Community Safety Glasgow.
There are four buildings on campus acting as help points in the programme and there are more than 40 more around the city, in supermarkets, coffee shops, banks and other universities. Find out more about the Student Help Zone.
