Safety & security

Södertörn University aims to create a safe and secure environment for students, employees and visitors. The university works continually to prevent and manage unwanted incidents such as fire, burglary, violence and threats.

Responsibility for security at Södertörn University follows the normal allocation of responsibility for activities. The Vice-Chancellor has overarching responsibility for security at the university, while each Head of School has overall responsibility for the students at his or her academic school. The Head of School is responsible for the students’ work environment. 

Unwanted events such as fire, burglary/theft, violence and threats can often be prevented. Risk awareness among staff and students is therefore the key to a safe and secure university. If you discover something that may affect safety at the university, report it immediately to your academic school, e.g. your course coordinator, study guidance counsellor or the student safety representative. You can also talk to the students’ union or the Head of Security. 

There are some things that you must bear in mind, for your own safety and that of others:

  • Always take fire alarms seriously.
  • Find out where the closest emergency exit is.
  • Doors that are marked “Branddörr” (fire door) must always be closed.
  • Do not use the lifts in case of fire or emergency evacuation.
  • You may not allow unauthorised persons into the university.

Please report broken doors, obstacles in front of fire doors, etc., to Campus & ICT Services. Tel: +46 (0)8 608 4001, e-mail: You can also talk to the front desk at reception.
