Campus Security and Safety

The University of Western Cape's Campus Protection Services department (CPS) creates a safe and secure environment on campus by enforcing laws, policies, guidelines, protecting UWC information and actively preventing crime. The department’s mission is to protect the University through professional security services and through leadership of community partnerships while fostering the educational mission of the University. 

We kindly request all members of the University community to be security conscious and proactively report criminal or suspicious behaviour on campus. Our 24 Hour Emergency Line is 021 959 2100 (Extension 2100). State your name, extension number, nature of crisis, location and always ask the name of the person who takes the call.

The CPS Security Plan consists of three Ds: 




  • Security Operations
