SafeZone is our mobile app designed to give you extra peace of mind on campus and at university accommodation.
The SafeZone app is free to download and easy to use. You can use it to:
- Check-in at any time of day – share your location so we know where you are on campus if you’re working/studying alone
- Quickly and discreetly call for assistance – whether it’s for first aid or in an emergency
- Report something – if you see something that isn’t right, you can report it via the app.
Any student or staff member can use the SafeZone app to get assistance on campus. The app will directly connect you to the appropriate safety/security team or first responder for that area, who will provide the assistance you need.
If you need assistance outside of the University campus, the app will still help by providing your GPS location and prompting you to call 999 in the event of an emergency.
Search for 'SafeZone' on Google Play or the App Store and download. Alternatively, you can scan the QR codes on this leaflet to get started.
Open the app, enter your University of Birmingham email address, and select ‘The University of Birmingham’ from the top of the screen.
Complete the required details: your name, phone number, and password. For security reasons, your password should be different to the password you use for any other University accounts.

“The SafeZone App is widely used across universities to provide reassurance on safety. Introducing SafeZone here at the University of Birmingham gives staff and students a direct link with Community Safety and Security and will really enhance our 24/7 security service.”
