We aim to provide a safe and secure environment for all staff, students and visitors to the UEA campus. We work closely with community police to provide a 24-hour security cover for the University campus. We provide advice and guidance to staff and students on how to keep themselves safe and how to protect their property.

What do we look like?UEA security guards in front of vehicle

To help you to identify us we all wear a UEA Security uniform. When outside, we wear either hi-visibility jackets, hi-visibility vests or black jackets with the UEA logo.

UEA security officers are trained to the highest level and are ready to deal with any situation. Also, we are all First Aid trained. 

We can be found around campus on foot, by bicycle and in our dedicated vehicles for fast response and patrol of outlying areas.

A comprehensive CCTV camera system of over 450 cameras operates throughout the University campus. This includes UEA residential areas. 

The cameras monitored from a specific control room are used to great effect in crime prevention.  

CCTV recording may include personal data and all such recordings will be treated in accordance with the Data Protection Principles.
