Security of Belongings

We suggest you ensure you look after your belongings when attending classes. Leaving them unattended provides the opportunity for thieves to steal.

  • If you are leaving your lecture room, desk or work area, do not leave your belongings unattended. Leave them with a friend.
  • Keep bags and valuables within sight or with you.
  • Lock items up in your student locker (link to Lockers page) which you can keep for the duration of your course.
  • Do not leave items in teaching rooms or studios as others may be able to enter these rooms with their security passes.

If you cannot locate your property, check with Security or Student Centre to see if someone has handed it in. Should a theft or an incident occur, report it to Security located at Reception.
