In the wake of the assaults, the University stepped up security patrols on campus. Students have previously criticised police for waiting a month to report a series of sex attacks.

Scott Kirby, president of Glasgow University Students’ Representative Council (SRC) told The Daily Record: “It is unfathomable how this has not been communicated as students rightfully feel like they have been let down for not being made aware of these incidents.

“We are incredibly angry and as a priority we will be seeking assurances from the university and Police Scotland that this does not happen again as student safety is of utmost importance to us.”

In an internal email sent by the university, a spokesperson said: “There have been four alleged cases of sexual assault in the West End of Glasgow.

“Police Scotland have charged a man in connection with three of these assaults.

“Incidents like this are rare and student safety is of the utmost importance to the university.”
