UL launches campus safety information campaign


University of Limerick, in conjunction with An Garda Siochana & UL Student Life has launched a campus safety information campaign.

The “Campus Watch Booklet” is part of ongoing collaborations to raise awareness and provide information on campus safety to students.

The booklet is aimed at encouraging students to be safe whilst on and around UL campus and includes advice on personal safety, vehicle security, cyber crime, anti-social behaviour, drug and alcohol awareness among others.

In an effort to maintain the environment the booklet is available to read on the UL website, and promoted via the UL Student Life social media platforms. Physical copies can be obtained from An Garda Síochána. It has been published in five languages and designed to allow quick reference to important student topics.
