Keeping you safe

If you're moving to a new place or leaving home for the first time, it’s natural to worry about your safety. While going off to university is exciting, it’s also a big change. We offer a range of support services to help you settle in and thrive at Liverpool.

Mental health and wellbeing

The mental health of our students is extremely important. We have a dedicated Mental Health Advisory Service that you can use. 

If you're having any difficulties, please speak to your personal tutor. They will help you access specialist support.

You can also contact our Student Support Team. One of our trained advisors will listen to and act on the information you provide. 

You can also have a look at our useful mental health and wellbeing resources, which will help support you during your studies.

Staying safe on campus

Here at the University of Liverpool, we take the wellbeing and security of our students and staff extremely seriously. We have numerous safety measures in place, including our:

  • Campus Support team, offering a chaperone service
  • Friendly, on-campus security team
  • Extensive range of CCTV cameras across the university
  • Dedicated campus police officer

Find contact information for our security teams and more detailed information about how we’ll protect you, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Report + Support

We’re committed to providing a supportive and inclusive environment for all students and staff. While we tirelessly work to ensure our campus is safe, if something does happen, anybody can use our handy Report + Support tool to tell us about it. The tool lets users anonymously report:

  • Bullying
  • Discrimination
  • Harassment
  • Sexual misconduct
  • Hate Crime

You'll then get expert support from a trained advisor. Find out more information about this handy tool.

Staying safe in the city

Like any city, Liverpool does experience crime, but the levels are no higher than in other major cosmopolitan cities across the UK.

You'll feel very safe because police officers are always visible and approachable in the city. Read our advice on staying vigilant when out and about in Liverpool.
