SafeZone

SafeZone is a free app for students that connects you to the University security team if you ever need urgent help, first aid or if you have an emergency while on campus.

The system...

  • allows you to call for help by activating the app on your smartphone to alert security team members to your situation and location, so they can respond quickly
  • allows the University to send you important information on campus closures, helping you avoid unnecessary journeys in the event of a building or full campus closure* 
  • Safezone is privacy protected, so will never share your location unless you summon assistance or if you use the check-in function designed for those who work alone or out-of-hours

Students who are interested in signing up for the service can download the SafeZone app from their app store and register using their University email address. Visit the SafeZone website for more information.
