Emergencies

  • Emergency Services (Police, Fire service, Ambulance) off campus 999
  • Emergency Services if on campus – 3333(internal phone) 01273 873333(all other phones)

Non-emergencies

  • If you would like to report a crime which is no longer an emergency you can either call 101 or visit/telephone your local police station

Theft

  • Report this to the Police (and Security if on campus) and get a crime number which you will need to make an insurance claim or to ensure that any future use of your credit/debit cards is not charged to you.
  • If your bank cards or phone has been stolen and you haven’t made a note of phone numbers for your bank or network provider’s emergency cancellation services then you should be able to find them online.

Assault

  • Violence is never justified in any circumstance and you should always report what has happened to the police or campus security if you can. If you don’t feel comfortable reporting it, you may want to speak to someone close to you.  Alternatively, you can seek advice in confidence from the Student Life Centre or the University Counselling Service
