It's always important to have emergency contacts to hand so make sure you save the following numbers in your phone.
When should I use 999 and 101?
You should always call 999 when it is an emergency, such as when a crime is in progress, someone suspected of a crime is nearby, when there is danger to life or when violence is being used or threatened.
When you require police or an ambulance on campus, you can call 333 from a Park campus landline and security will assist. Alternatively, you can contact Bay security on 01792 606010.
You should call 101 to report crime and other concerns that do not require an emergency response. For example, if:
- Your car has been stolen
- Your property has been damaged
- You suspect drug use or dealing in your neighbourhood
