Safezone app

We would really recommend all students to download The Safezone app. The Safezone app allows you to alert security through your mobile phone if you ever need urgent assistance, first aid, or if you have an emergency while on campus.

The system is privacy-protected, so will never share your location unless you summon assistance or if you use the check-in function. This also means the app will not drain your mobile phone battery.

SafeZone is simple-to-use and free to download:

Once you have downloaded the SafeZone app you need to sign up using your University email.

  • Non-advisory
  • Non-directional
