Emergency and 24-hour support

Is there an emergency?

If someone is in danger or a crime is being committed, phone 999 to contact police, ambulance or fire services.

If you are on or around campus and need immediate assistance, contact Oxford Brookes Security Services via its new number of 01865 60 3060

Members of the Oxford Brookes community are encouraged to save this number to their phone, in case you ever need to phone Security urgently. 

If emergency services have been called to Oxford Brookes premises, contact Security Services on 01865 60 3060 and explain your location so that they can direct the emergency crew when they arrive.
