Safety and security

Your safety is a priority to us. All of our accommodation buildings have secure fob access entrances and flats and bedrooms have individual fobs, keys or keycards which we issue when you arrive.

Keep your accommodation as secure as possible by keeping your fob, key and keycards safe and never lend them to anyone.

Do not leave internal or external doors propped open, or let anyone in you do not know; refer them to the SSH, accommodation reception, or find the person they are looking for.

Ensure you always lock your windows and doors when you leave your room/flat, especially if you live on the ground floor.

To prevent loss of your personal belongings, never leave them unattended in communal areas such as the kitchens or laundrettes. While your belongings are insured whilst they are in your room, they are not insured when you are using them around campus. Please contact Endsleigh for a quote if you would like to extend your insurance cover.

We want you to feel safe, so if you have any security concerns, we have support available 24 hours a day.
