STAYING SAFE 

  • Health Safety Students London NightMake sure someone knows where you’re going before you head out
  • Plan your travel - Citymapper or Transport for London (TFL)
  • Make sure you only ride in licensed taxis – find out more at TFL's safer travel campaign
  • If you feel unsafe or threatened on a night out seek help from the staff
  • Many pubs and night venues participate in the ‘Ask for Angela’ campaign and venue staff will help you get home if you feel unsafe on a night out
  • If you're traveling outside of London, fill in the FIE Travel Form
  • Stay alert to your surroundings at all times – be particularly careful at road crossings
  • Walk away from any indication of trouble, protests, demonstrations and suspicious activities
  • Drink responsibly - visit the Drinkaware website for advice on guidance on safe alcohol consumption

 

 

PERSONAL ITEMS

In your FIE residence:

  • Lock bedroom and flat doors, even if you’re just stepping out for a moment
  • Don’t leave valuable items in common areas – buy a padlock and secure valuables in your wardrobe using the metal latch
  • Mark or register your property through a program like Immobilise
  • Don’t give door codes or keys out to guests
  • Guests are NOT permitted between 11pm-8am - guests visiting in the day must be accompanied by the FIE student they are visiting at all times

Out and About:

  • Secure valuables in a zipped pocket, wallet or bag, and don't leave items unattended (e.g. laptop in coffee shop, bag out of sight in a bar)
  • Keep your passport locked away at home – a drivers’ license is sufficient to use as proof of age ID
  • Don’t carry large amounts of cash with you – credit cards can be cancelled if lost/stolen
  • Avoid walking with your phone on display (aka. don’t text while walking) - if you need to check your phone while you're out, stop and stand close to a building so you can keep it safe
