Edinburgh Local

University of Sanctuary

In July 2020, the University of Edinburgh became the first institution in the UK to renew its status as a University of Sanctuary, reaffirming a commitment to creating a culture of inclusivity and awareness for those seeking sanctuary on campus, and within the city.

We will continue to enhance ourleading role in the Universities of Sanctuary stream at a national and local level, working with other Universities of Sanctuary and the City of Sanctuary colleagues in Edinburgh, to achieve collective aims.

This work will include using research to shape national policy, improving access to information and support for sanctuary scholars, and building up Refugee Week activities.
