If you see anything that causes you concern or which you feel is suspicious, contact Security on 0161 306 9966.  This number is also on the back of your staff identity card.

For students

Support related to the impact on academic performance, including exams, is available through the usual support staff in Schools. In addition, students can contact the Counselling Service to arrange to be seen either in small groups or individually to help them manage the immediate impact and make decisions about how to take care of themselves over the coming days. 

Any staff who are themselves concerned, or who are concerned about a student are also very welcome to call us on 0161 2752864 to talk things through.
