Protect your belongings

At Oxford Brookes University, we are proud that our campus is an open, shared space and is accessible 24 hours. We want to prevent those who work, live or visit here from falling victim to thieves. 

Personal items are your responsibility - please do not leave them unattended, even briefly. They are not secure in an open environment.

A bag or laptop can disappear in a matter of seconds and thieves are often out of sight before you realise it has gone. Thieves frequently operate:

  • at cash machines,
  • in car parks,
  • around bus stations,
  • in overcrowded areas, especially at rush hour.

Protect your belongings by following these simple tips

  • Be aware and keep your possessions safe.
  • Never leave your bags or other valuables unattended in public places.
  • Be discreet with your belongings; displaying expensive jewellery or electronic devices, like mobile phones or cameras could attract unwanted attention
  • Register your valuables with Immobilise.
  • Engage tracking software if present. If not, download it.
