If you are moving to Wolverhampton from another area or Country,
one of the first things you should do when arriving is to register
with a GP and a dentist.
Choose the GP you would like to register with (see
NHS England website
(opens in new window)) and take your medical card with you when you
visit. Explain you are a student and ask whether the doctor is
willing to accept you as a National Health Service patient. A
doctor can refuse to take you on if his/her list is full. If this
is the case then simply ask elsewhere.
It is important to see a dentist regularly. Even if you are not
having any problems it is worthwhile visiting a dentist, as
prevention is often better than cure!
As a student you will be reading more than ever before and it is
important that you have an eye test to ascertain any need for
glasses, or change of lenses, so don’t neglect your eyesight!
CCTV is used inside and outside the University buildings. Our
security staff make regular patrols of the premises. Students and
staff are issued with identity cards and are advised to carry
personal alarms when travelling to and from the University. Please
take every precaution to help with your personal security by
complying with requests from security staff. Lock doors when you
leave a room, report any suspicious occurrences and keep your
belongings with you at all times.
Your experience of the University should be fun and enjoyable.
In order to provide a healthy and safe environment the University
requires your assistance.
You must carry your University ID
card with you at all times.
You will need it to enter University premises, including the
Learning Centres, computer laboratories and examination rooms. Our
security staff are authorised to ask to see a student’s card at any
time, so please be ready to show your card whenever asked.
The system is designed to work for the benefit and security of
the whole University community.
Everybody’s safety relies on all staff and students to report

action to be taken to prevent a recurrence.
If you need to report an incident, you can either contact
Security on numbers published around the campus; online at:
