Nottingham is one of the UK’s leading and most popular cities; the University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University and its students help to add an essential value to the city. All successful and vibrant cities have a strong university or two to highlight its academic importance to education. With that comes an improved local economy, a standard academic path from pre-school to higher education, eye-catching university campuses’ and related buildings. As well as a population of students who spend their time in the city. The universities add a tremendous financial and cultural aspect to the city and are both proud assets of Nottingham.
Nottingham University students – A safe place for your items
Both universities offer a plethora of courses in various subjects. Therefore it’s not possible to simply say that a student’s needs are all students’ needs. But the general consensus is that a typical student will either spend a lot of money on their equipment and/or text books for their studies; and they will also have a lot of expensive electronic equipment in their Halls of Residence or shared apartment/house.
One of the unfortunate things about student populated areas is that they are prone to high levels of theft. If you consider the typical shared student household and its contents, you’ll find that each room will have some sort of electronic equipment stored inside, and most likely, there will be several such items per room. Times that by the amount of students, and you have easy access to expensive equipment; laptops, smart phones, TVs, MP-3/4 players, etc.
So here are a few suggestions that we have to help any students who are planning to study at the University of Nottingham or Nottingham Trent; and also to their current students:
- Lock your doors and windows – even if you’re in the house you should close and lock and windows or external doors. Especially if no one is in the room.
- Don’t advertise your possessions – using your tablet in public is a sure-fire way to bring unwanted attention.
- Get them insured – for the worst-case scenario get your equipment insured. It’s a failsafe measure that you’ll be thankful for
- Don’t leave expensive equipment when you leave for shared household of Halls of Residence to travel or visit home.
