Safety and security at the University

Bath offers one of the safest University campuses and cities in the UK. Find out what our Security team does to make the University as safe as possible.

Security on campus
Our Security team is available to help 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Around the clock security

The University’s uniformed Security team is available to help 24 hours a day, seven days a week, throughout the whole year, at all University sites on and off campus.

If there is an emergency, call 666 from a landline or 01225 383999 from a mobile phone.

Student welfare

As well as keeping the University safe, our Security team is always available to help you with any welfare issues.

All Security staff are trained in first aid at work and mental health first aid, so they can provide pastoral care and welfare support when other professional services are not available.

They work closely with the Student Services team and the Wellbeing team, and will refer you if you need further help or support.

You can also ask the security team for advice on crime prevention, and any related concerns.

Our dedicated accommodation Security team patrols the residences and offers support to students 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
