Dark nights: stay safe

By BzBarlow 03 Nov 2017

With the nights closing in on us, it's really important you take extra care when out and about. 

It might be common sense, but...

  • Plan ahead: make sure someone knows where you're going, even if you're only popping to the local shop. 
  • Stay alert: listening to your headphones or talking on your phone can distract you and stop you from hearing potential danger
  • Stick to busy streets: avoid poorly lit areas and alleyways
  • Travel-savvy: if you're relying on public transport, make sure you check the last train/bus times before leaving as you don't want to be stranded!
  • Keep numbers handy: have a couple of trusted taxi companies saved in your phone as well as campus security (0131 451 3500)
  • Check ID: if someone wants access into residences and don't let anyone tailgate behind you

Locked out?

If you have your student ID card and it is before 8pm (Mon –Fri) or 5pm (Sat-Sun), you can: Go to the main University Reception who will issue you with a temporary key or card

If you don't have your student card and it is between 8.30am and 4pm, you can: Contact the Porter/Housekeeper in your hall

If you don't have your student card and it is between 5pm and 11pm, you can: Contact your Hall Warden

If you don't have your student ID card or it is after 11pm, you can: Contact Security Control (by calling 0131 451 3500 or from a red phone)

And finally, wrap up warm!
