Personal Safety

We take students’ safety and security very seriously. We hope that you enjoy your life and studies while at the London School of Business and Management. To help keep it this way and to provide a healthy, safe and pleasant learning environment, we have compiled a list of tips to help students take reasonable care of themselves and avoid unnecessary danger.

  • Always lock your door, no matter how short a time you leave your room, and ensure that your window is closed at all times when you are out.
  • Don’t display valuables (e.g. wallets, electronics, jewellery, etc) which may attract the attention of thieves.
  • While at home, if you can - lock valuables away or at least put them out of sight.
  • If you have a bicycle, postcode it and use securing loops which form a substantial deterrent. Remember to keep a description.
  • When out and about, if you don’t know the area you are visiting, try to travel with someone who does or consider calling a taxi to get you places. If you decide to walk, make sure the area is well lit and is not too remote.
  • Don't leave your bag, coat or laptop unattended in a public place.
  • Avoid carrying large amounts of cash with you.
  • Carry your handbag close to you, with the strap across your body rather than over one shoulder.
  • Be aware of strangers who approach you in the street, they may use distracting questions to grab belongings.
  • Where possible avoid using a cash machine at night or when there is anyone standing close by. Be alert to anything unusual about the machine, in case of ‘card-cloning' equipment. Cash-back facilities in supermarkets can be a safer option.
  • Be aware of your drinks in pubs and clubs, so they are not ‘laced’. If someone you don’t know offers to buy you a drink, either refuse it or see it being opened/poured before being given straight to you.
  • Keep a separate record of any phone numbers you’ll need to cancel your cards if they are stolen.
  • If you are using public transport, always check the times of the last train, tube or buses.

If you see something dangerous or suspicious, report the incident to the police (999 emergency or 101 non-emergency) or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. If you don't report incidents, nothing can be done to target or apprehend offenders.
