Security reminder – opportunistic criminals

From time-to-time opportunistic criminals will enter teaching and office spaces looking for things to steal. They are hard to spot, but if a person looks out of place or suspicious for any reason, please contact UC Security immediately.

Be particularly aware of people following you into spaces tail-gating on your legitimate access, without using an access card of their own. Once you have entered an area, please ensure the door is secure behind you.

If you see someone who seems out of place contact UC Security on 0800 823 637 (it is recommended you save this number in your mobile) or internally by dialing 6111.

This is not a major problem, but it’s important to remain vigilant.

Meanwhile UC Security are busy everyday on campus working to help keep people and property safe. This includes:

  • assistance with access to rooms
  • campus patrols
  • responding to calls about suspicious people or activity
  • workshops about security.
