# Protection Services
Protection Services provide support for critical incidents, safety and security on campus and can provide advice and practical solutions with regards to personal safety. We run regular ‘Drop In’ roadshows on campus where students can talk to officers about personal safety and security, and where items such as bicycle locks, personal attack alarms and UV marker pens are available at low cost. Free Bike Register cycle marking is available at our ‘Gone in 60 Seconds’ roadshows. Details of upcoming roadshows are available in Student News (opens new window) on the Student Portal.
# Contact information
The control room operates from the Alma Building, 24 hours a day, seven days a week and can be contacted by telephone on 024 7765 7363 for assistance and general enquiries, or on 024 7765 5555 in the case of emergencies. There are emergency help points located in the ‘Public Realm’ area in front of the William Morris building and in Starley Gardens.
Protection Officers are based in Halls of Residence that are directly owned by the University during throughout the year.
Should an issue arise that requires investigation, please report to the appropriate Reception in the first instance.
The Protection Service supports SafeZone (opens new window)an app that promotes safety in a number of ways, including giving fast access to Protection Services whenever and wherever you are on campus by allowing users to call for help and assistance when they need it most – SafeZone is free to download from the App Store (opens new window) or Google Play (opens new window). Coventry University users should then log on using their usual university login details.
