Northumbria University students and their role in the community

Every year, thousands of Northumbria students live alongside the local community adding a valuable cultural and economic contribution to the City.

In most cases this relationship is a harmonious one, built on respect for neighbours and the different lives that each lead.

We work closely with Newcastle Council, Northumbria Police, and Newcastle University to help reduce the impact of anti-social behaviour of students in the local community. Should you experience any issues that you feel you cannot resolve through neighbourly conversation, please report your concerns to the University Crime Prevention Team in the form below.

Please be assured that we take all complaints seriously, including reports of Northumbria students engaging in of anti-social behaviour.

How to contact us

If you feel there is a serious problem requiring an immediate response, please contact Northumbria Police via 101 or in the case of an Emergency 999. In such cases, please also alert the University via the form below and we will also investigate further.

There is also an emergency anti-social behaviour contact number for Operation Oak which is available between 11pm and 4:30am on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights: 07504 898 148. Please text this number rather than call, as officers may not be able to answer a call immediately, but they will respond to texts as soon as possible.
