Student safety tips
While the risk of you becoming a victim of crime while studying in Leicestershire is very small, it is recognised that students are more likely to be targeted by opportunist thieves than other members of the community. There are some simple measures you can take to protect yourself and your property which will help to reduce this risk.
Three things to remember:
1. Look after yourself
2. Look after your stuff
- Register your valuables with immobilise.com
- Got a bike? Use a D-lock to secure it
- Leaving your room? Lock your doors and windows
3. Think of your neighbours
- On the way home, keep the noise down
- Shopping trollies are not chariots!
- Remember you are a representative of the university
Each of the universities has a dedicated team of officers who will be patrolling on and around the campus. So why not get to know your local officers who will be happy to help you with any queries.
