Get Home Safe

Oxford is generally a safe place to study and socialize in, but please do take care and precaution re your personal safety. The university has a helpful guide on this, please do take a few moments to read it. 

Are you going home alone after a night out? Or just walking in the dark and feeling a little nervous? Call Oxford Nightline on 01865 270 270 between 8pm-8am in term time (weeks 0-9 inclusive) and they’ll be more than happy to chat to you until you arrive at your destination.

Please also be aware of the “Safe Lodge” Scheme as depicted by a green circle in most College Lodges. You can ask for help to get home from any college lodge. They will contact us and arrange a taxi home for you. You will be able to take refuge in their lodge until it arrives.
