Increasing Laptop Thefts in Library

With the exam period in full swing and students studying in the library in large numbers, we remind you to be aware of your surroundings and to keep a close eye on your belongings. Although our security staff patrols the library regularly, they cannot be on every floor at once.

In the last week alone, there have been no less than 4 laptop thefts reported in the library! If you have to leave your study area for any reason, take your belongings with you. We understand that it may be difficult to find study space at this busy time of year, but theft can occur in just a few seconds, especially is a thief is watching a particular area. Please do not rely on others around you to watch your belongings, as they may be distracted by their own studying.

Make this exam period less stressful by protecting yourself against theft. Watch your belongings and encourage others to do the same. Report any suspicious activity to security and library staff.

Watch your Belongings!

Theft is a problem, so please do not leave your belongings unattended.  The Spring/Summer term typically sees a greater frequency of theft, so be vigilant at all times.  If you need to leave your workspace, please take your belongings with you.

Thank you for your cooperation.
