Ukraine-Russia: advice and support for students and staff

Safety and security on campus

We continue to work closely with the police and security advisers to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our community of staff and students.

We keep our procedures and practices under continual review in the light of local and national guidance.

While we have not been advised of any further security measures at this time, we will be closely consulting with relevant bodies and preparing in readiness for any further actions that may be needed.

We will also continue to work closely with our Students’ Union, multi-faith chaplaincy and other groups who share our common and unwavering commitment to the values of community cohesion, tolerance and respect.

Stay Safe Principles

The personal safety of our staff and students is paramount, and with this in mind we wanted to share with you the government's advice on what to do in the unlikely event of a safety threat such as firearms or terrorist activity on campus.

Whilst there are no specific threats to the University, the UK’s national threat level is 'substantial' and we want to ensure that everyone is informed about how to stay safe and secure on campus.

The government's advice in such incidents is to ensure you follow the Stay Safe principles: Run, Hide, Tell.
