Your university experience on campus is just as important as your experience off campus. To fully enjoy your experience, we have created a list of helpful hints below:
- Be mindful where you keep your valuables.
- When traveling in large crowds such as shopping centres or public transport, be aware of pickpockets that could be operating in the area.
- Please make sure you have locked all windows/doors and secured other access points when leaving your house/accommodation.
- Where possible, avoid carrying large amounts of cash.
- If you use a bike, make sure it is secured at the relevant locations with a strong padlock. A bike rack is available for use outside our Student Union building.
- Please do not leave your drink unattended as this may lead it being spiked. If you think your drink has been spiked or if you see a drink being spiked, report this to the nearest authority.
- If you see any suspicious behaviour whilst out in public, please contact the relevant authorities.
- Use well-lit busy streets when walking at night.
- When using public cashpoints make sure to cover your bank pin.
