London is such a beautiful place, but like any big city…even London has its do’s and don’ts!

Here are a few tips to help you enjoy the capital safely and make sure you have the very best experience…

Traveling around the city

London has so many iconic locations and buildings that you must see, but make sure that you are always vigilant and aware of what and who is around you. London is a well-secured city, CCTV is in full operation around the city 24/7, even in restaurants and bars so make sure you have fun and if you follow our simple advice, we’ll help keep you safe!

Keeping your belongings safe

  • Always keep your bags close and do not leave them anywhere as this could lead to a security alert.
  • Try not to carry much cash with you and keep wallets and purses close by at all times.
  • When you are using an ATM machine, make sure that no one is looking over your shoulder and always shield you PIN.

Staying safe in your accommodation

As we all know the majority of student life is spent partying and having fun, make sure that you are still aware of anything happening around your student accommodation. At The Hive we have a fob access entrance that only allow residents who live at the accommodation enter the building. CCTV is always in operation around the building with an onsite management team and out of hours security guards located in reception.

Even though we have staff on site at all times, here are a few tips that you can do to keep safe:

  • Do NOT leave your keys lying around for anyone to pick up.
  • Always lock the door behind you and keep your bedroom door locked when you are sleeping.
  • If you see anything suspicious, make sure that you report it to the management team or security as soon as possible.

Remember, The Hive has been designed with you and your safety in mind!

Useful Contacts

  • In an emergency dial 999 from your handset or phone box.
  • If you lose your belongings or it has been stolen, report it lost as soon as possible and dial 101 for your nearest police station.
