Strathclyde SOS: reassurance at your fingertips
The University of Strathclyde is proud to launch Strathclyde SOS personal alarm protection delivered through your smartphone, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Originally designed for lone workers, Strathclyde SOS will be made available to both students and staff, and is tailored for our university community, those who live, work, or socialise on, and around our city-centre campus.
You may be locking premises out of hours, routinely travelling to, or from, your place of work or study, regularly travelling to different appointments. You may be alone in the same location for extended periods or concerned about being harmed in personal or social situations or getting home after a night out. Strathclyde SOS provides a push button alarm on your smartphone for use in an emergency, incident, or crisis. It is not for general enquiries or non-urgent assistance.
Strathclyde SOS is a pilot project. We have 1,500 free licenses and we welcome applications from our students and staff who feel they could benefit from the connectivity of Strathclyde SOS. Please register your interest using our Microsoft Form.
Strathclyde SOS is powered by Pick Protection. Pick Protection was founded by Strathclyde alumna Rebecca Pick (CEO).
