Student safety

Have fun while staying safe

To help ensure you remain safe when you go out in the evening and may be staying out late, please read the following advice:

  • Try to avoid walking home alone at night. Wherever possible, use public transport and travel with friends.
  • Don't walk along talking on your mobile phone. You may not be fully aware of what is going on around you.
  • When going out, only take with you the money you need for the night, and keep your wallet or purse somewhere safe.
  • Don't accept drinks from strangers and never leave your drink unattended.
  • Never share access codes for halls of residence with anyone who is not a resident of your house, flat or halls of residence.
  • Never accept a lift from someone you don't know, even if you are cold, tired or it's very late.
  • Avoid using shortcuts and badly-lit areas.
