You’ll be aware that there was a security alert in Newport on Thursday afternoon. As part of this, at the request of Gwent Police, the University took initial protective measures, then evacuated the Newport City Campus.

The University would like to thank all of the staff and students who cooperated so calmly.

We continue to keep our security levels and procedures under review, being vigilant with advice from the police and relevant authorities. Your safety is always our first priority in the context of USW being an open and inclusive university community.
