University Security Officers talking to student

Our services

The main operations room, located in the Portland Square building, provides the control hub for all Security Officers covering the 24 hour, 365 days a year operation.

This encompasses a complex CCTV system combined with the University Building Management System for fire, plant, access control, and intruder monitoring. Direct radio communication is monitored in partnership with Devon and Cornwall Constabulary and the Plymouth City CCTV operations room.

In addition, we operate a mobile patrol, which includes visits to offsite buildings.

If you are a student or member of staff and require more information on our security services, access the University Security portal.

If we are experiencing technical difficulties with any of our University of Plymouth lifts, you will be able to check their status and find more information about them on our lift status page.

If you wish to report an issue with a lift that is not listed, please get in touch with us on +44 1752 588588 or email us at
