General safety tips
As we go into Summer and the weather warms up it is easy to forget to close windows and lock doors when you go out. The majority of thefts occur when doors and windows are left open. Always make sure you lock your room, even when just leaving it for a few minutes. You are also strongly advised to back up work on your laptop to another source.
· Your house or flat may have a shared entrance door. Always lock the door after you. Do not rely on your house mates – check who is the last to leave.
· Do not leave ID cards, cash cards, money, cheque books or keys lying around - do not put temptation in the way of people looking through windows and doors
· Never leave your room / house unlocked when you leave it - even if it is only for a short period of time. Make sure all windows are closed and locked, even upper floor windows
· Insure your personal belongings. There are many providers of possessions insurance, including the major banks and Endsleigh Insurance (if you are living in University Accommodation (excluding Staff & Family Housing) you will already have a certain level of cover on your belonging whilst in your room). Many students choose to extend their cover to include protection for their laptop etc outside of their room.
Warwick and Sun Yat-sen University have today signed a series of agreements, Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs), which strengthen Warwick’s relationships with leading Chinese institutions and provide new opportunities for students to study in China and become “ambassadors for UK-China relations”.
