Cycle thefts on campus

A number of bike thefts have recently occurred across campus and from the accommodation halls since the semester began.

Campus Services have increased security patrols around bike parks and have apprehended some thieves. Unfortunately, we expect thefts to continue, so cyclists should be pro-active by ensuring the security of their bikes.

Bolt cutters are being used to cut through cable locks. D locks, particularly kryptonite are recommended and are more effective in deterring thieves.

Secure bike stands are only secure if cyclists refuse to allow access to anyone else when they swipe their cards to enter. Always ensure other cyclists use their own cards to enter the stands

Please report any suspicious behaviour immediately to Security on 0800 823 637.

Stolen cycles should be reported both to Security on 0800 823 637 and to Police on 03 363 7400.
