Universities of Sanctuary is an initiative to celebrate the good practice of universities welcoming sanctuary seekers into their communities and fostering a culture of welcome and inclusion for all. 

A University of Sanctuary should be a place where anyone can feel safe, welcome and able to pursue their right to education. 

Please visit the pages on Sanctuary Awards to learn about the awards process in general.

Our Universities of Sanctuary resource pack provides information specifically on University of Sanctuary awards. 

University of Sanctuary Awards are awarded through local and regional groups. Contact your local group or Regional Coordinator to discuss.
