Get familiar with the area and avoid back streets

Don’t walk alone, move around in groups – watch out for each other

If you can’t avoid going out let someone know where you are going and when you will be back

Keep your eyes and ears open so you are aware of your surroundings. Move away if you feel threatened.

Keep valuables out of sight (like money or mobile phones) and don’t be distracted by listening to music and talking on the phone

Stick to well-lit areas, don’t take short cuts through dark or isolated areas

Plan your journey, look confident and avoid risk. Never assume it won’t happen to you

Carry a personal attack alarm, which you can collect from the Richmond Building or UBU reception

Keep your mobile charged and have spare change so that you can get a taxi home

Report any incidents or suspicious behaviour to the University Security and Emergency Services on 01274 238888
