We aim to ensure the University of Surrey remains a safe and secure place for staff, students and visitors.
We provide a 24/7, 365 days a year uniformed presence on the Stag Hill and Manor Park campuses, with regular patrols of all areas including Hazel Farm and other outlying areas associated with the University, both on foot and in vehicles.

If you have been a victim of a crime
Our SurreyWatch service is designed so that you can anonymously report safely, which will enable us to work closely with other departments and the police in managing any incident which has or may occur on campus.
Report + Support
Use the Report + Support system for bullying and harassment, hate crime, sexual harassment and assault, physical assaults, relationship abuse and stalking, concerns about mental health and wellbeing and drug/alcohol abuse and/or addiction.

Tips for staying safe
Avoid quiet areas
Avoid short cuts in quiet areas and keep to well-lit, busy streets, making sure you walk/run facing oncoming traffic, so vehicles cannot pull up behind you.
Vary your route
Vary your route if you regularly go on runs or walks, and keep your music low enough that you can still hear around you. If you think you are being followed, walk to the busiest place you can find or knock on a door.
Get your keys ready
When approaching your car or home, make sure you have your keys ready so you can get inside straight away.
Hide your items
Keep your items out of view in your car, and from ground floor windows where people can easily reach inside. Make sure to register your valuable items to improve the chance of getting them back if lost or stolen.
Lock it or lose it
Secure your laptop to the desk (not the table leg!) with a Kensington lock and make sure to secure your bicycle with a decent lock – preferably in a cycle shed/rack, to deter theft.
