Although Liverpool is rated amongst the safest cities in the UK, it’s still wise to take steps to make sure you are safe at home and whilst out and about.
Many of you will spend some time visiting the various pubs, bars, clubs and restaurants in the area. Follow these simple tips to make sure you plan a safe night out:
Campus Support Services operates to ensure a safe and secure crime-free environment within the University community, through the provision of a proactive and vigilant Campus Support team. They offer a 24/7 chaperone service to escort any student, staff or visitor around the University campus to ensure that they feel safe whilst on our site. To request this service, please contact the control room on 0151 794 3252.
To keep your home and your property safe, follow these simple tips:
For more information and advice about enhancing your personal and property safety, contact our friendly Campus Support team on 0151 794 3252 or visit the Liverpool Student Homes website. The University also has a dedicated Police Officer who works alongside our Campus Support Services team and can offer practical safety advice. Further details can be found on the Campus Support webpages.
Your mental health is as important as your physical health and it is vital to seek help if you feel stressed, depressed or vulnerable. There are lots of support services and resources available including: the University Counselling Service; the Mental Health Advisory Service; SilverCloud free online self-help modules; Big White Wall, which is an online mental health and wellbeing service providing 24/7 online support; Bibliotherapy resources; a Relaxation Programme; and regular groups and workshops run by the Counselling Service. A list of other support networks you can access can be found on our Counselling Service webpages here. If you or anyone else is in immediate danger, please call the police or ambulance service on 999.
The University offers single Advice and Counselling drop-in sessions between 11am-1pm every weekday in the Alsop building. During September, an additional afternoon session will also run from 2pm-3:30pm. The sessions are staffed by the Advice and Guidance team, our Counselling Service and our Mental Health Advisers. If you need some advice or support about welfare or wellbeing, please come along to a drop-in session. You don’t need to book. Simply turn up at the Alsop building and go to the Student Welfare Advice and Guidance reception.
Despite the best efforts of robust University systems, we know from experience that scammers target our staff and students with malicious emails – and many people will unfortunately become victims of fraud as a result.
A phishing email is a fake email message that claims to be from an organisation you may trust. For example, a company, bank, government or from the University. A phishing email will often ask you to provide or “verify” personal or account details by clicking on a link or replying to the email.
In previous years, we’ve seen fake emails that look like they’ve come from Amazon, Royal Mail, and also the University.
The University’s computing services department blocks millions of spam and phishing emails, but phishers are constantly adapting and producing new techniques to target people around the world.
You should always be vigilant: check your emails to see if they are genuine and make sure you don’t give out personal information.
