Be Smart Be Safe

Be Smart Be Safe is a joint initiative between De Montfort University and the campus police team. 

De Montfort University is committed to working in partnership with its students, its staff and the local community to create a safe environment for study, work and leisure. We have forged a close working relationship with Leicestershire Constabulary and its local neighbourhood team.

This dynamic partnership means that De Montfort University is a safe campus. We intend to keep it that way.

We have a proactive 24/7 security team ready to respond to your concerns with a police officer dedicated to the campus. They are supported by the neighbourhood policing team working from the nearby Hinckley Road Police Station. Members of our security team, the Student Services Department and the campus police officer regularly patrol halls of residence and campus buildings. We are there to help you make the most of the opportunities presented by the University without fear of harassment, crime or anti social behaviour.

The purpose of this page is to give you access to some of our services. In particular you can submit a report to our security team expressing any concerns you have about crime, harassment or anti-social behaviour. You can if you wish submit this anonymously and be assured of complete confidentiality.
