Keeping you safe and secure

The University’s Security and Residence Life teams work closely with the local police to ensure that residences are patrolled appropriately. Leicester is a safe place to live, but crime does occasionally happen. It is essential to take responsibility for your belongings. Simple steps such as locking your room, front door and windows are vital. A basic level of insurance is provided with your room however we strongly recommend checking the policy and considering additional insurance for valuables, expensive gadgets and bicycles.

Always be alert for strangers and do not give criminals an easy opportunity. Please contact University Security Services if you see anything suspicious.
