More information about crime and safety

How we compile the crime table

  • In light of professional advice, the data presented is of the crimes most relevant to students: robbery, burglary, and violence and sexual crimes.
  • The universities are ranked on the combined rate of all three crimes occurring in the past 12 months, in areas that students live in term-time.
  • The official data for crime specifically against students is not available – these figures are based on all the victims in the vicinity, not just students.
  • This data aims to assist students with the university decision process, when their prospective universities cannot provide the relevant information.

Notes

  • These statistics are derived from data produced by police.uk, Ordnance Survey and the Office for National Statistics, and used under Open Government Licence v3. Student term-time accommodation data, HESA 2014–15.
  • The ranking is based on the relative levels of crimes of relevance to students. It does not record crimes in which students are themselves involved.
  • We calculated the annual reported incidents per thousand residents for the period July 2015–June 2016 by each ward or electoral division in England and Wales. For each institution, these crime rates were then combined using a weighting derived from the proportion of the institution's students that lived in each ward.
  • Where universities have multiple campuses, the figures relate to the aggregate for the institution. Crime heat maps around universities can be found in the university profiles, on the Living Here tab.
  • Because they are based on resident populations and therefore take no account of short-stay visitors and commuters, the figures may over-represent crime levels. However, this reporting problem is a common issue and the relative crime rates remain valid.
  • Comparable data for Scotland and Northern Ireland are not available. Rankings for cities and towns in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales with two or more universities are available – see How Safe is Your City?

The police.uk definitions of the three selected crimes are:

  • Burglary includes offences where a person enters a house or other building with the intention of stealing;
  • Robbery includes offences where a person uses force or threat of force to steal;
  • Violence & Sexual Crime includes offences against the person such as common assaults, Grievous Bodily Harm and sexual offences.
