Community Safety

Who We Are

The Community Safety department is a team of individuals dedicated to protecting the safety and security of everyone who lives, works and studies at the University. We have an on-Campus presence 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to provide pastoral support to everyone within our community.

Additionally, we are responsible for helping to protect the University's physical assets and buildings to ensure that the quality of teaching and research, that Warwick prides itself on, is not impacted by any nefarious activity.

What We Do

Our team provides a wide range of support and services to the campus community that fall into four main categories. Follow the links below to find out more about exactly how we operate.

Planning on cycling to explore the area? Don't forget to register your bike with BikeRegister to help beat bike thieves and be sure to get yourself a solid D-Lock to deter would be theives. We recommend locks with the Sold Secure award. With the nights drawing closer, don't forget to get some bike lights or reflectors to make sure you are visible while cycling in the dark.

If you live off campus and need to walk home, be sure to stick to well lit, populated areas. This map shows the most well lit routes into the local area. If you are travelling further, consider taking the bus or a taxi to get home quickly and safely, while staying warm. You can find lots of useful information for travelling to and from campus here.
