Student Safety: 21 Things You Need To Know
Share This Article:
Going to university can be one of the most exciting times of your life. Follow these simple safety rules from Safe Girl Security to make the most of it. STAYING IN… When you leave your room in halls always lock the door and shut the windows. Think about the risks before inviting someone you’ve just met into your room. Never let anyone into your block by holding a door open unless you know them or have checked their ID. If you see anything suspicious report it to campus security. It may be nothing to worry about but it’s better to be safe than sorry. When choosing where to stay make sure it’s secure and the area feels safe. It’s a good idea to visit it at night as well as during the day. Make sure you meet all your prospective flat mates and trust your instincts when deciding whether or not to move in. Ask if there are any areas near your halls to be avoided. Some shortcuts may be great during the day but have a reputation among other students for being unsafe at night. GOING OUT AT NIGHT… Try to plan ahead. Make sure someone knows where you are going, who you are meeting, and when you expect to return. Always plan how you are going to get home again. Remember, alcohol can seriously affect your ability to make safe judgments. If you are socialising with a group of people then watch out for each other and make sure everyone stays safe.
