Although Liverpool is rated as one of the safest cities in the UK, we wanted to share some top tips that might help you to keep safe on a night out.
If you experience something unpleasant on a night out or during your time at University, support is available. During office hours (Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm), you can email, visit or call (0151 794 5863) Student Welfare Advice and Guidance.
The team are based in the Alsop Building, which is situated on University Square. Our friendly advisers can give you information and confidential advice about any issue affecting your welfare. If you need immediate help, please contact the police.
- Stay with a group of friends and don’t wander off on your own.
- Make sure you know how you will get home. If you’re travelling by bus, make sure you know which bus you need and where it goes from. Memorise your address in case you need to call a taxi.
- Eat before you go out and try to alternate a soft drink with every alcoholic drink.
- Never leave your drink unattended or accept a drink from someone you don’t know.
- Keep your valuables close to you and out of sight, particularly on the streets at night.
- As in any city across the UK, incidents of sexual assault, harassment and hate crime can happen on a night out. The University takes these issues very seriously and has a number of proactive interventions in place to tackle incidents of sexual assault, harassment and hate crime affecting our students. If you experience or witness anything, the University has support available. You can find out more on our Safe and Welcoming Campus Environment web hub.
- If you would like to report a non-emergency crime or if you have a non-emergency enquiry, you can contact Merseyside Police via social media
