Safety and Security
We want all of our students to feel safe while they are at college and we strive to make our campus a safe and welcoming place, with a range of measures in place to protect our community.
Safety and Security
Below are some of the specific safety measures we have in place, but we encourage all students to turn to a member of staff about any worries or concerns, whether they are part of college life or happening off-campus. We're here to help you.
With such a big campus community, it's important that we can easily identify who should and shouldn't be on our campus. All students and colleagues are asked to wear college-issued photographic ID lanyards at all times. ID checks are carried out in buildings, entrances and across campus regularly throughout the day.
Our vigilant, highly-trained and qualified Security team operate 24/7, 365 days a year. They're easily identifiable in their high-vis vests, which also have body cams for additional security. If you can't spot a Security team member and you need assistance, you can call 0191 200 4187.
We have extensive CCTV around campus for the purpose of crime prevention and public safety. Our CCTV is always monitored, with a dedicated emergency line so that we can always contact the Security Team or emergency services if required.
Our Learner Services and Safeguarding Team help us in our commitment to protect young people and adults from all forms of bullying, abuse and radicalisation. Any concerns about welfare should be directed to our Safeguarding team on NCLSafeguarding@ncl-coll.ac.uk or via 0191 226 6316 during office hours.
Outside of college office hours students and parents/carers can seek advice from the Police on 101, and Newcastle Children's and Adult Services Emergency Duty Team via 0191 278 7878.
We have extensive measures in place to ensure student safety and welfare and all of our colleagues are trained to follow our safeguarding processes. You can explore more of our safety measures.
