The University of Glasgow's Security and Operational Support team are responsible for creating and maintaining an environment within which students and staff can study, work and live safely.


Branding for the safezone App

A must have for every member of staff and student at the UofG, the SafeZone App is an app that is monitored 24 hours a day by the UofG Security team ensuring the safety and security of our staff and students - whether it be on campus, at halls or anywhere in between.
The SafeZone App is a way of helping ensure staff and students feel safe and secure throughout their time at UofG. Although it is primarily designed for on campus working, much of its functionality is still useful for the Covid-19 and lockdown world we are finding ourselves in.

The main functions of the SafeZone App:
The blue button is for general enquiries if you have any questions or need help in a non-emergency situation, such as you're a little lost.
The red button is for emergencies and shares your location with the security team so they can find and assist you as quickly as possible. There's also the option to call emergency services. If you are not within range of the campus the app will give you the option to call 999, but the security team here at UofG will still be alerted and they'll get in touch to check if you're okay.
The green button is for first aid if you or someone around you needs medical assistance.
