Personal Safety

The Estate Patrol team can help with personal safety while you are living and studying at Exeter. As well as offering advice, they provide a variety of personal safety products to students for free, by collecting from one of the following locations:

  • Estate Patrol Office in Northcote House
  • Student Accommodation Receptions
  • The Ram Bar
  • Sports Park
  • SID desk at St Luke's campus

The Campus Safety Guide includes lots of tips and information to help you stay safe while on campus and out and about. You can also download the SafeZone app for free and you may prefer to use the Safer Walking Routes on campus, particularly on darker evenings.

Take a look below at the personal safety products available to students. Please note that even when using these products, you should still keep an eye on your drink and never leave it unattended.
