The University takes crime prevention seriously on campus and we have our own dedicated police offer on campus. Crime is generally low on campus however securing your bicycle is your responsibilty. We recommend you use a strong D-Lock to secure your bicycle at all times and avoid using a cable lock. Cable locks can be cut through easily by bike thieves and the vast majority of bike theft on campus is due to poor quality locks.
For a quick guide on how to lock your bike properly we recommend watching this video.
Purchasing D Locks
To help keep your bike safe the university offers two options for buying discounted D Locks: you can either buy from the Security Reception to the rear of Aston Webb building for £17 or get 1/3 off a Kryptonite lock from Urban Cycles who are located outside Staff House.
Students can now get their bikes security marked and a FREE D Lock via Security. Regular events on campus listed on their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/uobubsafe/
