Staying safe on nights out around Halloween:

Whilst we want you to have fun this Halloween, above everything we want you to stay safe.

So, before you head out on a night out this Halloween, there are a few things you should think about to ensure you have the best night possible whilst also keeping yourself and those around you as safe as possible.

Please take some time to look at our webpage: ‘your safety on nights out’ on our website for the latest guidance from your Students’ Union.


Nights out in the SU:

We work closely with local police to ensure that our campus and surrounding area is as safe as possible for our students. We have a number of safety measures, schemes and services which are in place to help keep you safe on nights out at the SU. 

Please familiarise yourself with our important policies and safety services: you never know when you or a friend may need our help.


Using the UPSU Taxi Scheme:

If you need to get home from a night out but have run out of cash or lost your card, you can use the UPSU Taxi Scheme with Need A Cab.

To use the Safe Taxi Scheme, ring 01752 666222 and they will contact you when they arrive, making you aware of their car model and registration number, ensuring you feel safe and secure and know where to go. Use your Student ID to “pay” for your taxi ride and collect it and pay the next day from the SU. 

If you do not order a taxi using the UPSU Taxi Scheme, make sure it is a licensed taxi. If the taxi driver doesn’t know your name – don’t get in! It is always better to pre-book your taxis to and from the venue in advance to ensure you secure your transport.

Have a wonderful Halloween all, and stay safe!
