Campus Safety

Newcastle College have a range of security measures in place to ensure that all students and staff remain safe while on campus.


Newcastle College employs a team of security operatives providing 24 hour cover, 365 days a year. Optimum staffing levels are in place to ensure pro active foot patrols are conducted around the college estate, both internally and externally.


CCTV is extensively situated around the college, both externally and internally in some buildings for the purpose of crime prevention and public safety with a dedicated CCTV control room that is staffed continually. The CCTV control room has a dedicated emergency line number in addition to two other phone lines.

Identification System

In addition to general college staff challenging people without a valid college ID, security staff do this as part of their specific duties and conduct ad-hoc I.D checks at the point of entry to buildings. We also have close liaison with our local neighbourhood police officers.

All of our security staff can be identified by their hi-visibility clothing which is identified with SECURITY on the back which serves to distinguish them from other day-to-day contractors and suppliers who may also may be wearing hi-visibility clothing.

These security provisions run across all Newcastle College and NCG campuses; from the Energy Academy in Wallsend to Riverside Dene in Cruddas Park.
