To ensure the students and staff safety, Middlesex University Dubai has 24/7 security services on campus. The Security Officers provide assistance such as alarm response, student protection, patrol and Student ID check and visitor identification checks to preserve the students' well-being and safety on campus and in its immediate vicinity.
University Security Officers are trained to quickly respond to urgent calls such as fire alarms and other emergencies. All students must fully comply with instructions given by these members.
In response to an argument, injury or any other related occurrence, the University Security Officers are able to effectively control the situation either by themselves or with the assistance of other officers.
The University Security Officers' main job is to protect students. They do so by enforcing rules, eliminating hazards, and assisting the students as necessary.
Students are required to abide by the random security ID check control. In case you are approached by a Security Officer, you are required to show your Student Identification Card to identify yourself. It is the students’ responsibility to ensure they are always carrying their Student ID Card. Failure to disclose name and other relevant identification details to a Security Officer or other staff member may lead to disciplinary action being initiated against students under the University Regulations.
To maintain the students’ and environment’s safety, the Security Officers patrol the campus premises regularly.
