  1. There seem to be a lot of incidents at your university! Are they all student related?

    With problems at my university, when security were called to an incident involving alcohol, as long as the student was awake and unhurt the security just took them home.

    In student accommodation it was normally the police who came and picked people up. Many students were charged with drunk and disorderly just like any other member of the public, and rightly so!

  2. Not all are student related and thankfully not that many are alcohol related either. But it’s a big place with multiple campuses and over 32,000 and 6,000 staff in the UK and therefore there is going to be a lot going on! Overall though is extremely safe for students and visitors.
