We are a national network of university staff, lecturers, academics and students. Together we are working to make Higher Education institutions places of safety, solidarity and empowerment for people seeking sanctuary.

Higher Education Institutions in the UK have a proud and radical tradition of supporting refugees and people in the asylum system. We are there to support the organisations who want to build on this tradition in today’s political and social context.

This network has been developed through a partnership between City of SanctuaryArticle 26Student Action for Refugees and others. Our aim is to develop a culture and a practice of welcome within institutions, the wider community, and across the Higher Education sector in the UK.

A growing number of universities are now being recognised as Universities of Sanctuary.
