Increase Safety for Students at University of Exeter

0 have signed. Let’s get to 15,000!


After the recent serious sexual assault on St Germans Road and other assaults/attacks in Exeter, many students feel like their safety is in danger after nights out. 

We are asking the University of Exeter to help protect its students by introducing a night time shuttle bus to halls and popular student living areas. We are also asking for a more visible presence of Estate Patrol during the night time, around halls, and on the typical routes students use to get home from clubs. 

We don't feel like a couple of emails with nothing more than the Estate Patrol's phone number is enough of an effort to protect our safety. The safety of the students is invaluable and for £9,250 a year a shuttle bus to prevent further horrific assaults is a small request.

If you have ever felt unsafe, unsettled, or scared walking home at night, please sign this petition to try and get the University of Exeter to take serious and necessary action to protect you and your fellow students.

In the meantime please remember to:

  • Never walk home on your own.
  • Use trusted taxi services (look for a yellow or green license plate).
  • Call 999 if you feel that your safety is in danger.
