SUSU Safe: an update on our safety measures

In News

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The safety of students continues to be a top priority at SUSU, and we have lots to update you on when it comes to Covid safety, anti-spiking measures and getting you home safely. We encourage everyone to be vigilant, and stay safe.

Take a look at our updates below to find out more:

Vybe Christmas
Our final Vybe in The Cube will continue to go ahead on Friday 10 December. We want to make sure everyone’s experience at Vybe is as safe as possible, so we are putting extra safety measures in place and we’ve asked students attending to follow our advice and guidance.

We’ve reduced our maximum capacity for this event and improved the ventilation in our buildings. We will be asking attendees to show confirmation via the NHS app, email or text of a negative Lateral Flow test taken on the same day of this event before entry, and will deny entry to anyone who can’t provide this. 

Vybe Transport to Winchester
We are providing free transport to Winchester after Vybe Christmas to make sure everyone gets home safely. This can be booked here: Vybe WSA Transport

We encourage students to wear masks when moving throughout SUSU and University buildings, unless you are exempt from wearing one.

Safety Against Spiking
Free Stop Topps and spiking testing kits are now available behind the bar in Below Deck and The Stags. Just ask at either bar if you’d like to use them.

Safety Bus
The Safety Bus will continue to run every night until (and including) Friday 17 December. The Safety Bus runs on the hour, every hour, from 20:00 onwards until midnight or when a late-night event on campus finishes. Catch the Bus from the Redbrick area outside B42 and The Stag’s.

Student Safety Charter
Earlier this term we sent a Student Safety Charter to bars and late night venues in Southampton, which outlined safety measures we expected each venue to put into place. We’ll bring you an update on the charter in the new year.

You can speak to our team about any safety concern, at any time, either in person or via our SUSU Safe email address: sususafe@susu.org.
