West Midlands Police

Preventing crime, protecting the public and helping those in need

Advice centre



There are eight universities in the West Midlands region, with over 65,000 students in Birmingham alone. Student safety is very important to us and we are committed to helping and supporting students during their time in the West Midlands.

We know that crime isn't necessarily at the top of your list to consider but West Midlands Police are here to help you and there are police officers designated to all the main campus sites. You can also help to prevent yourself from becoming the victim of crime.

Visit the force Safer Students website for information on safety advice, university contacts and useful links.

If you're interested in regular 'Safer Student' updates, you can follow us on Twitter @SaferStudents.
