Security Services

The team provides a wide range of services aimed at maintaining a safe and secure physical environment in which the University community can work and study.

Professionalism around the clock

Operating 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, we are always on hand to provide support and assistance to staff, students and visitors. The quality of our service relies strongly on the close partnerships we have established with University staff, departments, colleges and the wider University community. 

The core services we offer include alarm and CCTV monitoring, security patrols and crime reduction advice and parking. Our work does not stop there, however.  In order to be fully responsive to our customer's needs, we also provide chargeable specialised support services, such as key holding, security screening, training and support for specific events.
