Personal Safety

London is one of the most interesting and vibrant capital cities in the world; it is also one of the safest. However, as in any large, busy city, crime is a problem so you do need to take care about personal safety and looking after your belongings. Being so centrally located, the area surrounding the University of London is susceptible to crime and in particular suffers from a disproportionately high level of rough sleepers, beggars and drug misusers/dealers. ‘Personal Safety – a Quick Guide’ [Word, 36kb] gives useful advice and tips on how to stay safe.
