Out together, home together

Arrange with your friends to walk back to your rooms together.

Take care of each other

Has a fellow student had too much to drink? Make sure that he or she gets home safely.

Glass in your hand

Keep hold of your drink, and donโ€™t accept drinks poured by strangers.

24/7 security

Feeling unwell or unsafe? Afraid to return to your room alone or with your fellow students? If so, callย security. They are on hand 24/7 to ensure safety on campus.

Speed dial

Put the telephone number for securityย in your phone, so you donโ€™t have to look for it when you need it. Install theย 112 appย on your smartphone. With a click of the icon you will be connected to the police/fire/ambulance. The 112 operator can also see where you are (if your location switched on).

Take a well-lit route

It is better to walk on well-lit streets than to take a dark path or park.

Be alert

Seen someone you donโ€™t know having problems? Or noticed something suspicious? If so, contactย security.

No means no

Donโ€™t let anyone take advantage of you: you can and must say no. You set your own boundaries.


Donโ€™t hesitate to go by taxi if you are too drunk to walk or cycle home. Itโ€™s not too expensive, especially when shared among friends.

If you order a taxi/collecto/Uber, ask the driver if he knows your name before you get in. That way you are certain that the taxi is the one you ordered. If the driver wants to check that you are the person who booked the journey, ask him to confirm your first name and reply with your surname.
