SafeZone is a free app 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.

It also allows you to ‘Check In’ to University campuses automatically so we can gather data for the purposes of Test & Protect which helps us protect each other and reduce the spread of coronavirus.

Using the SafeZone app, along with following the current public health measures, will help us to stay safe when we are on campus.

It is important that we all download SafeZone so that when you are on campus you can be checked in. But don’t worry, you won’t have to do this every time you are on campus; the app can be set up to do it automatically so that you don’t have to even think about it. It will even check you out of campus too.

How to set up SafeZone

Automatic Check In - Recommended

After downloading the SafeZone app, register it using your University email address and mobile phone number

You now need to access your ‘Settings’ in your smartphone.

  • Scroll down to the SafeZone App and select
  • Click the Location arrow
  • Select ‘Always’ rather than ‘while using the App’
  • Then open the SafeZone App, click the ‘Settings’ option from the top left menu
  • Select the ‘Allow Automatic Check In’ button to green
  • This should then enable auto check in when in a zoned area on campus


Manual Check In

If you do not want to benefit from the automatic check in function you can manually check in when you arrive on campus.

After downloading the SafeZone app, register it using your University email address and mobile phone number.

  • You need to manually check in each time you come on campus using the ‘Check In’ button on the App Home screen
  • You are automatically checked out when you leave campus


We urge you to take every opportunity to register your presence when you can.
