A student Community Safety Initiative has been running for the past ten years. This is managed by a Student Liaison Officer who co-ordinates activities between the Council, Northumbria Police and both Universities. Together they tackle burglary to student houses, deal with any student anti-social behaviour and ensure that the welfare of students is supported through a number of personal safety campaigns at key times of the year.

Initiatives take place on campus in student communities and in student halls of accommodation.
