The University has a campus-wide CCTV Scheme in operation with in excess of 200 cameras throughout the site. This is manned 24 hours a day by in-house staff within the Security Control Centre located in the Armstrong Building.

The primary aims of the system are:

  • to assist in safeguarding the welfare of staff, students and visitors to the campus
  • to provide a safer environment for vehicle parking
  • to provide improved security of university property
  • to assist in the prevention, deterrence and detection of crime

The CCTV system is governed by a strict code of practice which takes into account the Data Protection Act 1998 and Human Rights Act 1998. Any enquiries regarding the CCTV system should be directed to the Security Manager - Shed Coulthard.
