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.
