NTU Safe Place extended to Clifton and Brackenhurst campuses

Nottingham Trent Students’ Union (NTSU) President Conor Naughton has announced the extension of the Nottingham Trent University (NTU) Safe Place to both Brackenhurst and Clifton campuses.

The scheme is available from 8pm to 8am, seven days a week, and offers a space for all students who might be in distress, feeling anxious, or need a safe area to cool down.

This comes after the City Campus safe place opened in Boots Library last year, acting as a trial for the now bigger network of safe places across all NTU campuses.

Brackenhurst based Animal Biology student, Amy Senior, said: “The extension of the safe places to Brackenhurst and Clifton is just amazing.

“As a Brack student, having a safe space for myself and other students to utilise at any time of night when in distress is something that is just invaluable.”

The three safe locations can be found in:

  • Clifton, 123A, upper floor Pavilion
  • Brackenhurst, PCL8, Pippin Cottage
  • City, 006C, Boots Library

The project is headed by both NTSU President Conor Naughton and NTSU VP Community & Welfare Zoe Mallett.

Conor said: “The safe places will work in exactly the same way as the City, as a supportive safe place for any student to use if they need somewhere to go that is secure, and open through the night, wherever you need it.

“I’m so proud of what Zoe and I have done with this project and ensuring a safe place on all campuses is fantastic.

“The safe places continue to evolve and develop and we are working behind the scenes to make it the best it can be.”

Both Nottingham Trent University and the University of Nottingham also provide a Safe Taxi Scheme to ensure that all students have safe access to get back to their homes.
