Safety & Security
St John’s takes our responsibility for residents’ safety extremely seriously. In addition to the Warden, the Dean and the Junior Deans residing on-site, we have adopted a number of security measures to help ensure our students remain safe.
The Dean of Students is responsible for the after hours care of our residents. We have the following security measures in place:
- Security guards are employed in the College every night
- Safety cameras monitor some gates and common areas
- Resident Assistants are appointed and trained as peer mentors to oversee the well-being of residents in the accommodation blocks, alongside their role of building community
- Either the Dean of Students or one of our Junior Deans or one of our Resident Assistants is rostered to be on-call during the daytime on weekends for emergencies. The person in this role is the primary contact for any resident who requires assistance and has been trained to take appropriate action should an incident occur. Such incidents may include an accident, a fire, a fire alarm, a medical emergency, excessive noise, undue disturbance or disruption, the inappropriate actions of members, or occasions where the presence of non-members threatens College security, safety or quality of life.
