What is the app?
SafeZone is a free new app for all students and staff that connects you directly to the university security team when you need help while you are on campus.
You can get urgent help if you or someone near you feels threatened or is the victim of an assault or robbery, and call for First Aid or Help in less urgent situations. When you raise an alarm or call for help, all on-campus security team members will be alerted to your situation and location so that they can co-ordinate to help you quickly and effectively.
The SafeZone service is specific to SafeZone Areas that have been defined by your campus security team. While you are within one of the defined areas, the campus security team will respond to your alarm or call.
What does it cover?
Need First Aid?
If you need medical assistance, tap the FIRST AID button. Campus Security will know your location and will direct a qualified First Aider to assist you.
If you need assistance from Campus Security, tap the HELP button. You will be connected directly to speak to Security, and they will know your location.
If you feel threatened or need urgent assistance, tap the Emergency button. Campus Security will know your location, try to contact you and come to your location.
