Based on the Complete University Guide’s annual crime survey issued in England and Wales, the University of York was ranked number one as the university with the lowest crime rate. The university rankings are determined by the overall crime rate from the previous year, and the survey is composed from police data within the local population showing the crimes university students are most likely to encounter. Especially being located in a small yet upbeat city, it was no surprise the University of York took the top spot!
This survey also mentions several universities based in the London area. However, the survey categorizes them separately from universities in greater England and Wales. Based on the survey issued in the London area, our partners, St. Mary’s University of London and Queen Mary, University of London were also ranked in the top five of universities with the lowest crime rates.
