Reporting a security incident

How do I report an incident?

If you want to report an incident to Security, you can contact the team by phone on 0116 2577642, or on extension 7642 from any DMU phone. You can also contact us by email at

If you'd like to speak to a security officer in person, visit our reception desk at the Estates Services Building, opposite Gateway House (building number 15 on the campus map). 

Our team members are here to keep you safe, and will be happy to listen to you. Our offices have rooms that can be used to discuss sensitive information to ensure privacy.

What happens when I report an incident?

If you contact us directly by phone or in person, our team will discuss the details of the event with you. They may ask questions about the location, other people involved or in the area and other details in order to get a the most complete picture possible.  They will then investigate, using the information you made available to reach a resolution.

There are options for support available outside of DMU as well; find external support organiations with our Student Helplines guide.
