Student guide – how to reduce exposure from cell phone tower

signals at UK university campuses

This is a ‘one-of-a-kind’ student guide and it is based on ensuring the university you choose to study at understands the dangers from cell phone masts and WIFI router antennas. If the university truly understands the dangers of microwave radiation, it would not permit the installation of mobile phone masts on its campus and would pro-actively ensure that exposures to microwave radiation are kept as low as reasonably possible i.e. by hardwiring internet connections and reducing/eliminating WIFI-enabled teaching aids. The purpose of the table below is for you to question university administrators before you start your studies – good luck in all your choices.

This guide gives information on the number of mobile phone masts on and around twenty five or so UK university campuses. Exposure to cell phone frequencies may give rise to irritability, stress, anxiety, depression, as well as brain and heart tumours. Unfortunately, mobile phone companies aggressively target young people at university including student halls of residence. The following data illustrate the sad fact that telecoms companies in almost all situations erect their cell phone towers either on the campus of the university itself or around the campus boundary. Even where student accommodation is off-site, the telecoms companies follow students by erecting mobile phone towers at off-campus student halls of residence.

Scroll to the last page for tips and hints in choosing the best university for you…….

The mainstream media do not tell you but the latest scientific data of 2018 show ‘clear evidence’ of the carcinogenic nature of microwave radiation – the same frequencies used by mobile phone companies. There are also numerous studies linking increase in stress, anxiety, depression and other psychological problems in relation to exposure from cell phone frequencies i.e. microwave radiation. The solution for university administrators is fairly simple: examine the use of wifi, remove any on-campus mobile phone masts and come up with a plan to reduce exposure to these highly damaging radiations. Simply put, replace wifi with hardwired alternatives such as optical or Ethernet cabling and ensure their campus is as free from mobile phone masts as humanly possible.

This guide illustrates the number and placement of mobile phone masts in and around some of the biggest UK university campuses. As a rough rule of thumb, if you live or study within 200 m of a mobile phone mast, you are in a field of high signal intensity. Ideally you should spend as little time as possible within 500 m of any mobile phone masts or emergency service locations such as police, fire and ambulance stations.

How to use this student/parent campus checker:

Click on the university of your choice and discover how many mobile phone masts are on campus, in your teaching block or student accommodation. Each university campus is shaded grey and the round blue dots signify a mobile phone mast. The yellow dot approximates the centre of campus and is based on the postcode. Check the scale at the bottom left of the map to see how far a mast is from your campus, your living accommodation and study areas. Generally speaking, university campuses within city centres have the highest number of masts and the distance between each mast is usually less than 200 m.

You can also ask the university administrators the following questions to ensure they are aware of the dangers and hazards living close to mobile phone masts and their transmitting equipment.

  • Do they know about the condition of EHS (electro-hyper-sensitivity)?
  • Do they have low exposure zones on and around campus for sleep and study for those affected by microwave radiation?

If the answer to either of the above is a clear ‘no’ be careful to what you sign up to.

The table below should be treated with caution. Even in situations with no phone masts on campus and few phone masts off campus, exposure from microwave radiation is not necessarily low. In most situations, both on and off campus, it is the height of the mobile phone mast antennas that is crucial to your psychological well being.

Here is my advice:

(a) find out where you will be studying and living. An on-campus mobile phone mast means the background level of pulsed microwave radiation is relatively high.

(b) if you plan to live off-campus in designated student accommodation or halls of residence, make sure it is clear of mobile phone masts. As a general rule of thumb, it is advisable to keep at least 500 m between you and a mobile phone mast

(c) ensure your academic block is well away from any of the WIFI routers inside the university itself.

University of Manchester

Map 2

University of Manchester Campus view

There are 4 mobile phone masts on the University of Manchester campus with at least 12 other mobile phone masts within 500 m of the campus boundary. If your accommodation is to the North, East and south of campus it would be difficult to escape high signal intensity pulsed microwave radiation.

  Map 3

University of Leeds

 Map 4

University of Leeds Campus view

There are at least 8 (eight) on-campus mobile phone masts and at least a further 9 (nine) mobile phone masts within 200 m of the campus boundary. The signal intensity just from the on-campus mobile phone antennas must be very high

Map 5

Manchester Metropolitan University

Map 6

Manchester Metropolitan University

Manchester Metropolitan University has at least six mobile phone masts on campus and at least 14 cell phone masts within a 500 m radius. Clearly, the campus itself is a zone of high signal intensity microwave radiation particularly to the north of the campus and beyond. This is an inner-city campus which is surrounded by fairly heavy infrastructure i.e. whether one is on campus or its surrounding areas, the signal intensity of pulsed microwave radiation will be high – no place to hide.

Map 7

University of Nottingham

Map 8

University of Nottingham

There are 7 mobile phone masts on campus and at least 13 mobile phone masts dotted within 150 m of the campus boundary. This is a typical ‘honey spot’ approach the telecoms industry employ when installing mobile phone masts around university campuses. Note the number of Vodaphone cell phone masts on the same side of the campus spaced at 50 m and 100 m of each other – this is telecom-overkill.

Coventry University

Map 10

Coventry University Campus

Coventry University has 2 mobile phone masts on campus and about 12 other mobile phone masts within a 300 m radius of its campus boundaries. Be wary of student accommodation to the north and northwest of the campus grounds. It appears from Map 9 that the background signal level of pulsed microwave radiation is quite high based on the total number and density of mobile phone masts in one area.

Map 11

Cardiff University

Map 12

Cardiff University

There are 7 mobile phone masts on campus grounds of Cardiff University with at least 12 other mobile phone masts within a 400 m radius of the campus boundaries.

University of Edinburgh

Map 14

University of Edinburgh

Map 15

University of Edinburgh campus view

 

The University of Edinburgh lies on a sprawling campus with at least 3 distinct student areas and it is not possible to pinpoint a central point within the university. The campus itself holds 11 (eleven) mobile phone company antennas. One mast is installed on Appleton Tower, the height of this mast is 46 m above ground level. This one mast must put out a huge signal across campuses and beyond.  Note the density of mobile phone masts around campus boundaries and it is clear to see that signal density of pulsed microwave radiation is probably quite high. I estimate a background level between 2 volts – 5 volts per metre squared. The Canongate digital TV transmitter is also located in close proximity to campus grounds. The mast is 69 m high with a transmit frequencies between 700 MHz – 780 MHz. This transmitter will add to the already high level of electrosmog.

Map 16

Sheffield Hallam University

Map 17

Sheffield Hallam University

There are at least 6 mobile phone transmit antennas on the campus of Sheffield Hallam and at least 24 mobile phone masts within 500 m of the campus. This is an inner-city university with a very high density of mobile phone masts to the north and west of the campus. Background levels of pulsed microwave radiation within the entirety of this campus and beyond will be high. There are also police TETRA antennas within 250 m of the campus boundary.

Map 18

University of Liverpool

Map 19

University of Liverpool campus view

There are 5 mobile phone masts on the campus of Liverpool University. There are also 18 other mobile phone masts within a 400 m radius of the campus. As with most city centre university campuses the telecoms companies install masts on and around the student campus perimeter, I estimate background levels of pulsed microwave radiation to be quite high.

Map 20

University of Warwick

Map 21

University of Warwick

The University of Warwick has 12 mobile phone company antennas installed on its campus including a police TETRA antenna system. The police antennas are installed 26 m above ground level, hence a massive signal within and around campus. There are at least six mobile phone masts around the perimeter of the University of Warwick campus. There are also at least 12 other mobile phone masts within 300 m of the campus boundary. That is a lot mobile phone infrastructure in one site. I would love to carry out an EMF survey of this particular university campus.

Map 22

University of Newcastle

Map 23

University of Newcastle

Map 24

University of Newcastle

The University of Newcastle has 5 mobile phone company antennas on campus with at least a further . That said, the mobile phone company O­2 has 8 (eight) mobile phone masts within 50 m of each other – this is literally, over-kill.

Map 25

University of Abertay

Map 26

University of Abertay

There are no mobile phone masts on the campus of the University of Abertay and there are twenty (20) mobile phone masts within a radius of 500 m from the campus boundary. If we look at what is happening within 300 m of the campus we easily see that Vodaphone and T-Mobile have installed multiple pulsed microwave transmit antennas within 25m – 45 m of each other. There is no technological reason for them to have so many of their masts in one specific area. This type of thinking leads to very high levels of electromagnetic smog and it is almost impossible to get away from it. To their credit, the University do not irradiate their students yet if students live off-campus to the south east of the University their exposure must be horrendous – as it is for all persons living and working in that area.

Map 31

Nottingham Trent University – Brackenhurst campus

Nottingham Trent University is an inner-city university with probably the highest density of mobile phone masts on and around their various campuses discovered thus far. This is illustrated by Map 32 which shows several mobile phone masts at their out-of-town research campus, Brackenhurst. This is how the landscape used to look 25 years ago. In those bygone days, people opposed to the siting of mobile phones in their streets became activists, local planning laws were effective and the telecoms industries were still in their infancy. Contrast Map 32 with the number of mobile phone masts erected in a laisses-faire environment around the other campuses and it is clear to see that almost any university campus represents a ‘honey-pot’ for entraining and altering the brain chemistry and its physiology. Even though I am mildly electrosensitive, I suspect I could last no more than an hour on any Nottingham Trent campus apart from Brackenhurst.

University of Stirling

Map 33

University of Stirling

Map 34

University of Stirling

Stirling University has 3 mobile phone masts to the southwest of its campus which is well away from the main site. There are however, at least 18 other mobile phone masts around the environs of the campus. The on-campus mobile phone masts are about 400 m from the student halls of residence.

Map 37

University of St. Andrews – Blackadders student accomodation

Saint Andrews University has two on-campus mobile phone masts with at least 5 other masts within a 500 m radius of its campus boundary. The density of mobile phone masts on and around the campus is relatively low compared to its student population. The significant issue is the siting of a mobile phone mast in the immediate environs of student accommodation i.e. Blackadder halls of residence.

Map 38

Queens University Belfast

Map 39

Queens University Belfast

There is one mobile phone mast installed at the main block of Queens University Belfast and at least 18 mobile phone masts within 400 m of its campus boundary. There are several student halls of residence and Mount Charles has 1 mobile phone mast close by, Both Elms Village and College Garden student halls of residence also have 1 mast very close. Clearly, the telecoms industries also target off-campus student accommodation when siting their masts.

Map 40

University of Aberdeen

Map 41

University of Aberdeen

There are three (3) mobile phone masts on the campus of the University of Aberdeen. The ‘Orange’ mobile phone mast is 43 m tall and it must put out a terrifically strong signal throughout the campus and well beyond. In contrast, there are only five mobile phone masts within 500 m of the campus boundary.

Map 42

University of Brighton Moulsecoomb campus

Map 43

University of Brighton Moulsecoomb campus

The Moulsecoomb campus has no on-site mobile phone masts and 21 other mobile phone masts within a 400 m radius of the campus boundary. There are also two police TETRA antennas within 400 m of the campus. Finally, there is a digital TV transmitter 400 m away from the campus boundary. The transmit antennas are 83 m above ground level and this one source will put a massive signal across and abeyond the university campus.

Map 44

University of Bristol

Map 45

University of Bristol

Bristol University has seven (7) mobile phone masts on campus and about 17 other mobile phone masts within 100 m of the campus boundary. Six of the antennas within the campus are sited on top of Senate House and their height above ground suggest the signal to and around the campus will be very high. Significantly, there is a police TETRA mast approximately 80 m from the campus in Rupert Street. The height of this mast is 62 m above ground level. Typically, mobile phone and emergency services masts and antennas are 15 m – 25 m above ground level. The police TETRA antennas by definition of height above ground will transmit a powerful and consistent signal to the local environs and beyond. I wonder what the average power density is at say 100 m away from these antennas? More to follow …..

 

Map 46

University of York

Map 47

University of York

Much of the student accommodation at York University is found at Campus West. There are no mobile phone masts on the campus with at least a further 9 mobile phone masts within 200 m of the campus border. Map 48 gives further information on why the density of mobile phone masts is relatively low i.e. 9 to the usual 20 or so elsewhere and why there are no mobile phone masts on campus. There are four mobile phone masts on Siwards Water Tower which is 28 m above ground level. There is a further mobile phone mast about 450 m from the campus boundary at a height of 34 m above ground level. To the south of Campus West there are a further four mobile masts at least 18 m above ground level. In other words, because nearly all the mobile phone masts are so high above ground level, signal coverage within and around the campus is complete and at very high signal levels. There is also a police station (Fulford Road Police Station) about 450 m from the campus boundary transmitting TETRA frequencies at 400 MHz which are modulated at a frequency of 17.6 Hz.

There is a lot going on within this area i.e high signal strength pulsed microwave radiation at GHz (gigaHertz) frequencies and TETRA police signals at 400 MHz also carrying a 17.6 Hz signal. There is more to come on this…..

University of Cambridge

Map 49

In this relatively small area of Cambridge, there are 23 (twenty three) mobile phone masts. Some of these masts are fairly low i.e. up to 5 m above ground level and others are as high as 30 m above ground. The topography of buildings and their differing signal absorbing, reflection and refraction characteristics make it difficult to predict areas of high signal intensity. I suspect there are plenty of ‘radio blackspots’ within the spires of Cambridge University campus grounds hence the mobile phone masts at 3.5 m and 5 m above ground level. The only way to assess this situation is to visit Cambridge with a detection meter.

Map 50

University of Dundee

Map 51

University of Dundee

There is one mobile phone mast on campus and another one sited on the campus boundary. Both of these mobile masts were installed fairly high up on a university building and Church West Tower. These two antennas will transmit a fairly high signal of microwave radiation across all of the campus grounds. From what I can see from images at the top of the mast, most of the campus is line of sight to these antennas i.e. the signal on campus and beyond is relatively strong.

Map 52

University of Essex

Map 53

University of Essex

The University of Essex has one mobile phone mast on its campus grounds. The mobile phone mast (Vodaphone) is 40 m above ground level. At this height above ground, this single antenna will transmit a huge signal across all of the campus. This campus is also home to a VHF digital transmitter transmitting between 660 MHz – 710 MHz at a transmitter power of 10 watts. Once again, the signal strength from this TV transmitter will be very strong and adds to the general levels of electrosmog on the campus grounds. There are also 23 other mobile phone masts within a 500 m radius of the campus boundary.

Map 54

University of Greenwich

Map 55

University of Greenwich

The University of Greenwich has no mobile phone masts on campus with two masts on the campus boundary. There are about 18 mobile phone masts within a 400 m radius of the campus boundary. The mobile phone company O2 has five (5) mobile phone masts within 100 m of the campus boundary – this is over-kill and I mean that in the literal sense. Those five O2 mobile phone masts could easily be reduced to one in order to reduce the general background levels of microwave radiation.

Liverpool John Moores University

Map 57

Liverpool John Moores University

There are no mobile phone masts on the City Campus of LJMU. There are at least 23 other mobile phone masts within a 200 m radius of the campus boundary. The placement of mobile phones around the City Campus is typical of many inner-city university grounds which leads to a high level of pulsed microwave radiation.

Map 59

Lancaster

Lancaster University has three mobile phone masts on campus and a further 7 masts within a 400 m radius of the campus boundary. There I also potential for high ground currents or ELF (extremely low frequency) signals from the ‘ring of steel’ i.e. electricity pylons on all sides of the campus.

The University of Glasgow has 13 (thirteen) on-campus mobile phone masts with a further 8 within a distance of 200 m around the campus boundary. Clearly, with such a high number of mobile phone companies on campus, the background intensity of pulsed microwave radiation must be high. It is slightly lower off campus, thus it is advisable to look for student halls of residence away from the university.

The University of West England (Frenchay) campus has seven on-campus mobile phone company masts with a further 21 masts within a 200 m distance around the campus boundary. It is unusual even for the placement of mobile phone mast installations to have at least 14 mobile phone company mast within one area to the north west of the campus – that is a very high number. The signal intensity of pulsed microwave radiation must be very high and if you sleep, study and play within this part of town you will have no respite to these frequencies.

The University of Northumbria has four on-campus mobile phone company masts with a further 28 masts within a 150 m radius of the campus boundary. Thus, many of these masts afrom the same company are within 50 m of each other – yet another example of overkill leading to a high level of microwave radiation for those caught in its signal.

Leeds Beckett University has four on-campus mobile phone company masts with a further 32 (thirty two) within a 300 m radius of the campus boundary. There is also a police TETRA antenna network within 75 m of the campus boundary. This is probably one of the most densely populated mobile phone infrastructure of all universities. The background level within the entire area must be very high. Note all mobile phone companies site their own masts within 30 m – 50 m of each other – another example of over-kill.

The University of South Wales has zero mobile phone masts on campus with nine masts within 100 m of the campus. In total there are seventeen mobile phone masts within a 400 m radius of the campus boundary. To the east of the campus about 150 m away is a line of electricity pylons. There is potential for either ground currents of electricity or EMFs (extremely low frequency) signals at the campus and its surrounding areas. Finally, there is a digital TV transmitter about 600 m to the north of the campus. This transmitter emits frequencies around 700 MHz and because of its height emits a very strong, digitally-encoded TV signal across a  wide geographical area = high levels of electrosmog.

Much of this hardware lies to the east and north of the campus boundary. There is also a digital TV transmitter about 500 m from the campus boundary. To reduce exposure to the mobile phone frequencies, seek living accommodation to the west of campus, preferably 700 m from the campus boundary.

The University of Strathclyde has four on-campus mobile phone company masts with a further twenty masts within a 400 m radius of the campus boundary. Significantly, some of these masts are installed almost 70 m above ground level with several other masts at 30 m high. The elevated height of these antennas suggest a very strong background level of pulsed microwave radiation within and outside the environs of the campus grounds.

University of Kent

Map 91

University of Kent

 

The University of Kent has four on-campus mobile phone company masts with an additional eight masts within 100 m of the campus boundary. One reason for the low deployment of mobile phone masts around the campus is that one mast with three separate mobile phone company masts is installed 38 m above ground level. From what I can see of the topography of this area, line of sight transmission from these masts mean that signal intensity within and around university grounds will be high.

 

Map 92

University of Bournemouth

Map 93

University of Bournemouth

The University of Bournemouth has six mobile phone masts on-campus with an additional fourteen masts within 400 m radius of the campus boundary. The low deployment of mobile phone masts around the campus can in part be explained by the fact that one of the masts is installed on top of a water tower, 38 m above ground level. At high vantage points such as this, one mast can be shared between three different mobile phone companies.

 

Data from this student guide on how to reduce exposure to microwave radiation show that most universities, their campuses and student halls of residence are seen as honey-traps by mobile phone companies. There is ample evidence to show an over-supply of mobile phone masts and antennas around university campuses as they are installed within 50 m of each other. These tactics of over-supply and lack of government oversight, either in safety exposure to these frequencies or at the planning stage, has resulted in extremely high levels of electrosmog. Students are exposed to high intensities of microwave, UHF (ultra high frequencies) and ELFs (extremely low frequencies) on a daily basis, month after month. I argue that the level of exposure to all these frequencies is the root cause of student suicides. Clusters occur because some of us are more electrosensitive than others in the presence of strong signals. That is the context and backdrop to the scale of what is happening at some UK universities. Do bubbly, social and out-going students decide to end their young lives or are their young lives prematurely ended? The quote below is from the Bristol Post, a Bristol based newspaper, dated 5 July 2018(1):

Nearly 100 university students took their own lives last year in the UK as counselling services at Bristol University and UWE (University of West England) faced unprecedented demand. New figures released by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) showed that 95 students had killed themselves in the year ending July 2017 in the UK. In Bristol 13 students – 11 at Bristol University and two at UWE – have died since October 2016, which includes three in three weeks over April and May this year.’

The same newspaper goes on to report the latest tragic student suicide at Bristol university:

During the court hearing today (July 5 2018), her dad Kurle Ogundipe said in a statement: “I last saw Omojola on March 11 when she returned home for the weekend. She appeared her usual bubbly self.” Mr Ogundipe said his daughter returned to Bristol on the same day and he later received a WhatsApp message from her to say she had reached her student flat in the city. Police informed him of his daughter’s death three days later. He said the family were not aware of any ill health and did not think she suffered from depression or mental health problems.’

In order to explain student suicide clusters I compiled a list of mobile phone and AIRWAVES police TETRA antenna installations at some of the biggest universities within the UK. I suspect the clue needed in explaining student suicides and student suicide clusters lies in the mix of microwave, UHF (ultra high frequencies) and ELFs (extremely low frequencies) and student exposure patterns. It is also clear that not all students suffered from mental health issues or depression. This was admitted by Bristol University’s own Professor of Epidemiology just a month ago. He blamed student suicide clusters on ‘copycat’ happenings yet failed to explain the initial incident. Clearly, no-one is yet able to ascertain what is going on and these incidents will increase if we sit back and do nothing.

In conclusion, I argue a strong link between student suicide clusters and the 17.6 Hz signal that is interlaced either on police /emergency services TETRA or 3G mobile phone frequencies. This hypothesis can be tested by anyone if they look at the duration and incident of young people suicides in Bridgend Wales in 2007. If you cross-reference young people suicides against the start dates of police TETRA communications area by area, it might point to a possible cause and effect. The manner in which these signals are modulated results in the production of 17.6 Hz signals. There is plenty of scientific evidence linking a frequency of 17.6 Hz to increased irritability, stress, anxiety and ultimately depression. A frequency of 17.6 Hz lies within our upper spectrum of brainwave activities or EEG. Frequencies that lie within our natural brainwave spectrum should never be used to modulate a transmit frequency. That said, emergency services and all organisations using a transmit frequency of around 400 MHz and a 17.6 Hz modulating signal are just one layer of the problem. Mobile phone company transmitters particularly 3G systems also interlace a frequency of 17.6 Hz on their signals. Perhaps there is something slightly different about the TETRA signals – burst duration, pulse duration and the way in which these signals are encrypted?

This student guide should be used to inform you of the potential level of electrosmog you may experience at a particular university, its campus grounds and halls of residence. I focussed on the bigger universities with large student populations and these campuses are targeted by mobile phone companies. If I was to look at the smaller universities based on student population, it is probable a new picture of mobile phone density may emerge. In other words, those universities in the wilds of Scotland or down south close to the English Channel might be a better choice if you are electrosensitive.

Clearly, I would try and avoid inner city campus universities because the entire infrastructure of modern daily life is here i.e. on and off campus mobile phone masts, police, fire, ambulance, shopping centres, large libraries, train and bus stations etc. Each of these facilities makes extensive use of all frequencies mentioned in this guide. Some university campuses are mobile phone mast free yet there are still numerous other masts dotted around the campus boundaries. Even where there is a low density of mobile phone masts around campus, beware of a single tall mast in excess of 50 m above ground level. These antennas radiate a massive signal to all corners of the campus and beyond. If you are unsure, seek the advice of an EMF professional so that you can make an informed choice as to where to study.

There are no easy answers in elucidating cause and effect in student suicide clusters. It is multi-layed and complex because it is a social problem and can only be solved at a societal level. I refuse to believe it is the fault of depressed students taking their own lives – it just does not ring true. The norm within society is to accept and embrace digital technologies and that is precisely what billions of people the world over have done. It is very difficult for many people to accept that their governments, safety regulators, university administrators, head teachers etc would allow something like WIFI and smartphone use into society without proper safety testing but that is precisely what has happened.
