When working in the building always sign the out-of-hour book and include the location and your telephone number in case Campus support need to contact you in case of an emergency. Please ensure you also sign out when leaving.

Unknown persons and tailgating

Although the campus buildings are secured with swipe access, at times people who don’t have swipe access may try and tailgate/follow you into the building. Should you witness this either inform the Building Manager/Halls reception team or if out of hours contact the control room immediately.

If you see someone acting suspiciously or you don’t recognise them in your building, always contact Campus support and provide a description of the person(s) so we can attend.
