Safety and security at Cumberland College

Our dedicated team work throughout the night to ensure you have the safest and most secure place to rest your head.

Security staff

You'll see our night security staff wandering the halls at night and they're more than happy for a chat in the wee hours.  We ensure that our residents are well looked after and have a suitable environment to study and sleep in.

Swipe card entry to the building

One entry and swipe card access gives our residents the freedom to come and go as needed whilst keeping the college safe and secure. There are also limited lockable bike facilities on site.


We have Closed Circuit TV in most areas of the College for your additional safety and security.

First aid and fire trained

All of our live-in staff are trained fire wardens and first aiders. In addition they undertake extensive training in pastoral care and welfare.
