If you are a student and concerned that you might harm yourself (e.g. considering suicide or having suicidal thoughts), you need to contact an emergency or crisis support service. Details of these different services are available at Crisis support: need help now. This webpage is also useful for finding services available outside normal university working hours.

If there is an emergency on campus, the best action is to report it to the university’s security team at these emergency contact numbers:

  • Denmark Hill West – 020 7848 5555
  • Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience – 020 7848 0001
  • Guy’s, Strand & Waterloo Campuses – 020 7848 8661
  • NHS Trust Buildings – 020 7188 3333


Further contact details for security at each campus
For more details on contacts for day to day campus and residence operations activities, an identified risk concern or for out-of-hours emergency maintenance assistance, current students and staff can access this through our internal website at Security - Contact Us.
