Property Security

A large percentage of property stolen at the University is targeted because it has been left unattended in public/insecure areas.

The areas in question include

  • libraries
  • cafes
  • lecture theatres
  • computer clusters
  • halls of residence

To try and address this crime problem a number of initiatives have been introduced and will run throughout the academic year.

The simple message is; if students and staff look after their own belongings, a large proportion of these crimes can be prevented.
