Introduce an app putting people in contact with the security team when on campus if they're in an unsafe situation
In light of the Sarah Everard vigil, women everywhere came out with experiences that are far too normalised for us, with those in positions of power often dismissing harrassment and assault cases. The ability to contact security discretely when in a trapped or unsafe situation would help prevent these situations occurring in the first place, and make campus a safer place, not just for women, but for everyone. Reading University are looking to implement this and I think it's an incredible start to making campus more accessible and safer.
This is something the University is now researching and looking to implement.
Alternatively, you can currently reach out to the University's security team using the number: +44 (0)2380593311.
Please note this service is 24/7 and this number is also on the back of your University ID card.

Thanks for your submission.
I have taken this to the University who are now looking to implementing this.
I will update this once I have more information from the University.
