Security on dormitories

Be aware about your personal security by following these basic rules:

  • Avoid isolated places, especially at night.

  • Stick to well-lit routes where there are people in sight.

  • Try not to be out alone after dark.

  • If you are going out late, try to tell someone where you’re going and what time you expect to be back.

  • When using cash machines, look behind you - watch out for people watching you.

  • Try not to use cash machines late at night.

  • Avoid carrying large amounts of cash around with you.

  • Mobile phones, laptop computers, digital music players are attractive to thieves. Be careful about where you take them and how you use them.

  • Never get into a taxi on the street unless it is a black cab. Only use a private-hire cab that you have booked by phone.

  • Don’t accept lifts from strangers.

  • Trust your gut feelings and avoid persons and situations that make you feel uncomfortable.

Around the Campus

  • Protect your belongings by locking your office/room door every time you leave

  • Don’t leave purses, book bags, laptops and other valuables unattended.

  • Keep valuables out of sight in your car.

  • Be safe in your student home

    This may be the first time you have lived away from home, or the first time that you have shared a house or flat.


    Your dormitory or flat will probably have a shared entrance door. Always lock the door after you. Do not allow anyone in until you are sure who they are

    Do not leave ID cards, cash cards, money or keys lying around - do not put temptation in the way of your housemates or visitors

    Never leave your room unlocked when you leave it - even if it is only for a short period of time. Make sure all windows are closed and locked, even upper floor windows

    Insure your personal belongings
