We're proud of the fact that we're accredited by Secured Environments.

We're proud of the fact that we are one of a select group of universities in the UK to be awarded the Secured Environments accreditation. 

Awarded in July 2022, the accreditation is recognition of excellence in security and crime prevention. As part of the process, our team was thoroughly audited to ensure we were meeting the six key principles of Secured Environments:

Six principles


A commitment at every level of the institution to creating a secure environment


A robust system to monitor and assess any risks to our community and campus


An institutional understanding of our role in preventing crime and responding to it

Six principles


Evidence of a proactive plan being in place to keep our community safe and secure


Effective implementation of this plan across all levels of leadership


A security team that is always reflecting, learning and looking to improve
