In the case of an emergency on campus, it's important to know who should be your first port of call.
The University Security Service operates 24 hours a day, every day of the year. They offer crime prevention advice, patrol the campus, investigate crimes, and respond to alarms and emergencies.
If you need to get in touch with the University Security Service, contact:
Security Control Room
175 Woodhouse Lane
Tel: (0113) 343 5494/5 (non-emergencies)
or (0113) 343 2222 (emergencies only)
If you witness a crime or if you're the victim of a crime, contact both the University Security Service and the police. For all non-emergency situations, call the police on 101. The Estates and Campus Support Services website can tell you or your students what information you'll need to give the police or the University Security Service.
After contacting the emergency services as appropriate, any accidents or incidents including fire and bomb threats should be reported through Sentinel. Any accidents resulting in a major injury or death should be reported to an approved manager and to Health and Safety Services.
If you discover a fire:
In event of fire
The fire alarm is a continuous alarm sounding. If you hear this alarm you should immediately evacuate the building by the nearest exit.
If the emergency is one which threatens to severely disrupt (in whole or in part) the functioning of a faculty, service or the University as a whole, and/or which carries the risk of significant adverse publicity, then it should be treated as a critical incident and should be reported to the Secretariat, via the Office of the University Secretary, Roger Gair (34011).
