How safe is Manchester University?

Manchester University is a very safe place to live, work, and study, as is the surrounding community of North Manchester. The safety of members of the Manchester University community is a primary concern of the University, and a principal responsibility of the Office of University Safety. A fully trained officer is on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week, supplemented by student security cadets.

I lost my room key and I am locked out of my room. What should I do?

You should contact your Hall Director or Resident Assistant. If you are locked out and feel your safety is at risk, use the emergency phone located at the front entrance to each hall to contact a Safety Officer. You will be required to show your student ID to gain access to your building. You will also need to report the lost key to your Hall Director, and pay a key replacement fee.

You should contact your Hall Director. The Safety staff is not permitted to give students access to these areas.
