Keeping your homes and valuables safe

Living alone or with housemates? We’ve got you covered with some important safety information for how to protect your homes and look after your valuables.

Always make sure you keep your front door and windows locked, especially when you're going out and you're the last person to leave your home. Take some time to check your locks, especially those living on the ground floor with accessible ledges. If the locks are not strong enough then you should contact your landlord and ask them to upgrade them as soon as possible.

You can collect some free window and door alarms from the Community Safety Hub on campus. These devices can deter burglars and alert you if someone tries to break in.

Check that your garden gates are locked and fences secure. This can sometimes be an easy route for intruders to enter your property without anyone knowing.

Be careful not to leave any expensive valuables in plain sight, such as laptops, phones, jewellery. You can store them in a safe place in drawers and cupboards or take them when you go out. It’s a good idea to cover your possessions with insurance if you ever needed to replace them.

We care about your safety and we want you to have an enjoyable living experience. If you have any questions or concerns talk to your Guild Safety Wardens or drop by the Community Safety Hub, open Monday to Friday 10am to 4pm in the North Gate Lodge at the top of the Green Heart.
