Students to benefit from enhanced personal protection, both on and off campus
CriticalArc has today announced that its pioneering SafeZone™ personal protection and campus security system has been selected by Swansea University to boost 24/7 safety for its students and staff both on and off campus.
Swansea University is the latest in a fast-growing list of UK higher education establishments to choose SafeZone, following its European launch in 2014. The University has more than 19,000 students, including many international students, studying on a range of courses from Engineering, Law and Criminology, Arts and Humanities, Science, Medical, Human and Health Science and Business Management supported by just over 3,000 staff (includes academics).
SafeZone will be deployed at the two principal campuses ie the Singleton Park and the Bay Campuses as well as 7 other sites frequented by students and staff in the Swansea Bay region, where it will offer enhanced protection for any staff and student when they are at risk or need urgent help. It will meet the need of the campus security teams to support an increasingly round-the-clock learning culture that offers safe 24/7 access to libraries, study hubs and other facilities.
