Experiencing discrimination can leave you feeling upset, unwelcome, frustrated and angry. It can help to speak to someone about how you are feeling and discuss how this has impacted you personally.

If you ever feel you are in immediate danger or at risk

  • Call the Police on 999 (or 112 from a mobile). 
  • If possible, try and find somewhere you feel safe. If this isn't possible and you are on campus you can call Security on 01227 922355.  
  •  You can also use the Safe Zone app to immediately contact Security if you are on campus.
