Safety and security

Feeling safe and secure is understandably a top priority when it comes to choosing where you’ll study, and in 2023 The Complete University Guide has listed Stirling as the safest student city in Scotland. Police Scotland have also described our campus as one of the safest in the country, and we go the extra mile to look out for our students both on and off campus by providing a 24/7 security team and a range of support services, such as the SafeZone app and our Safe Taxi Scheme.
