Looking after your safety: update for our students

We hope all our students have an amazing experience living and studying in Liverpool. The city is a safe place and has Purple Flag status, which is awarded to places that promote the safety and wellbeing of visitors and local residents. 

Over the summer months LJMU has made a number of important changes to further improve the safety and wellbeing of our students: 

Report and Support Tool 

A new anonymous report and support tool will go live on the LJMU website this September so that all students, staff and visitors who experience any form of harassment or sexual misconduct can report any incidents. 

Trusted contacts 

LJMU has changed students’ ‘emergency contacts’ to become ‘trusted contacts.’ This means your trusted contact can be contacted in the instance LJMU believes you are experiencing significant deterioration in your mental or physical health and wellbeing. You can view and edit who your trusted contact here. 

We’re always reviewing and updating the ways we help you to keep safe and as well as these new additions, remember: 

  • The Student Life Building is open 24/7 with LJMU security staff always on site 

  • The emergency security phone number will be on the back of your student ID card if you need help on campus: 0151 231 2222 

  • We have a university police officer, PC Martin Triggs, who you can speak to in confidence. He’s available in the Student Life Building every Monday, Thursday and Friday 10am to 12midday 

  • You can get specific support from our SAW team, including from specially trained Sexual Violence Liaison Advisors. In person and online appointment are available to book via MyLJMU. 

You can find out more about all the student support available here.
