What to do if there's an an emergency.



In the event of an emergency, please phone the University’s emergency number, which is +44 (0)117 328 9999 on a mobile phone or 9999 if you’re using a telephone connected to the University network. There are emergency red phones on campus for you to have direct contact with security staff.

Your call will be answered as a priority by staff trained to respond appropriately and provide assistance. They'll also arrange to guide emergency services to your location.

Something unsafe?

You can report anything that appears unsafe on a campus, either in person at an Information Point or by contacting the Estates and Facilities Helpdesk:

Report and Support tool

Our online tool has been developed for UWE Bristol students to get help if you've experienced something on campus or on university business that makes you feel upset or uncomfortable.

With Report and Support, you can choose to speak with one of our trained advisers so they can discretely investigate incidents, or you can report issues anonymously.
