Your safety and security is our priority. The University has an on-campus security team available 24 hours a day. Our security officers are responsible for patrolling the halls regularly to ensure you are as safe and secure as possible. We have a dedicated Security helpdesk located in at the eastern end of the main atrium, which students can visit at any time.
Additionally, each room contains a telephone from which you can ring Security directly at any time. The University has a dedicated emergency line if you need urgent assistance, and we work closely with the Metropolitan Police to ensure students feel safe and happy around campus.
UEL also operates a ‘silent witness’ scheme, so you can make an anonymous report of any incident that may have worried you.
There are numerous CCTV cameras positioned around the Student Village. Each one is active and monitored by our Security team in the UEL control room. There’s also a strict visitor policy in place, which means you can be safe in the knowledge that those in residences are either authorised visitors or fellow residents.
Our accommodation is a student community with Residential Life organising regular events and activities for all residents in our common rooms, on campus and off-campus. As a student Halls of Residence, unfortunately a level of noise in Halls campus should be expected. Residential Life have a noise complaint process, which can be viewed on our Intranet pages.
