Drugs Awareness on Campus
Keeping safe on campus
You’re a couple of weeks into term now and starting to settle in to your accommodation and find a routine. And, you’ve probably realised that it’s completely different than living with your parents - people are coming and going at all hours of the day and night.
There might be times when you might see things that just don’t feel right – perhaps a person in your halls that you don’t recognise, or other students doing things that you don’t think should happen in your community.
What to do if you see or know drugs are being sold on campus
The university has zero tolerance for selling drugs on campus and the police will be called if we suspect this is happening. This not only covers visitors to the campus, but also students. If you’re ‘buying in bulk’ and selling on to your friends to cover the costs, you are a drug dealer and you will be dealt with as such.
If you see anybody suspicious in your halls or around campus, let us know. If you think somebody is selling drugs in your community, you need to tell us. You can do it anonymously – tell us what, when, where and who – we’ll deal with it and you won’t ever be identified.
There’s a couple of ways you can let us know:
Online using our e-listening form – this is best if you don’t need an immediate response.
Phone Security on 0117 32 89999 – we’re 24/7 365 and will respond to your concern immediately. We won’t take your name if you don’t want to give it.
Remember – we all have a responsibility to keep our community safe. Don’t let people into your halls if you don’t know them and make sure you don’t let people tailgate you through doors. You wouldn’t have let strangers into your home a month ago, don’t let them in to your new home now.
Put 0117 32 89999 in your phone so you can ring UWE Bristol Security quickly
Don’t let people into your halls if you don’t know them.
Don’t let people tailgate you through doors – they’re locked for a reason
Ring Security if you see anything suspicious – you can stay anonymous.
If you’d rather go straight to the police yourself, you can contact our Police Constable Phil Busvine, email (Philip2.Busvine@uwe.ac.uk) or telephone (07889 656 419).
