One in 25 Bristol students will be a victim of violent or sexual assault

Twice as likely than UWE

One in 25 students at University of Bristol will be victim of a violent or sexual crime according to new statistics.

The Complete University Guide took the number of crimes reported from July 2015 to June 2016 per one thousand residents within student areas. These crimes include burglary, robbery and violence and sexual offences. They found that University of Bristol had a total score of 5.4 per cent for all crimes reported. Four per cent of people are likely to be a victim of violence and sexual offences, whilst burglary and robbery rates are at one per cent.

Bristol students are almost twice as likely to be a victim of crime and violence and sexual offences than UWE students. Last year the Tab reported that over a third of women at the University of Bristol had been sexually assaulted.

These statistics are based on all residents and not just students, the results are taken within wards or electoral divisions weighted by student population.
