Oxford University Security Services (OUSS) provide the University with a trained team of Security Officers and advisers.

OUSS monitor external CCTV around the University, respond to incidents of crime, work in close liaison with Thames Valley Police (TVP), advise departments on security matters and provide security for University events.  OUSS will also provide (at a charge) an alarm response and key holding service to departments.

Departments however are responsible for:

  • controlling access to their buildings (including access control systems)
  • management of any internal CCTV
  • managing lock up procedures for their building
