Safety, support and wellbeing

We pride ourselves on supporting and encouraging our students to thrive in a safe and supportive atmosphere.

Safety on campus

In 2023 The Complete University Guide listed Stirling as the safest student city in the UK and 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 our Safe Taxi Scheme. A dedicated Accommodation Services team looks after the welfare of residents.
