Accidents or emergencies

Emergency contacts, first aid guidance, defibrillator locations and how to report accidents.


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 phones in buildings 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.

You can prefix the emergency number into your mobile phone, it is also recorded on the back of your university swipe card.
