You know if you mark your food, eg in named tubs, does it still go missing?
Yeah, it does. It only needs one thieving ******* in the flat :rolleyes:

Nobody ever locked their door in my corridor in halls and nothing was stolen. We got very lucky.

Houses being broken into was far more common in terms of stories heard around campus. Just be careful and sensible.

Not in halls but in a shared house. Something quite valuable too. Bumheads.

God in the first year things kept going missing (food, dishes and stuff) including my stuff. I never stole anything but someone everyone ended up thinking it was me and life wasn't so pleasant :p:

Has this happened to anyone whilst staying in halls in regards to electronics e.t.c.

my mother seems to be really paranoid about how i need to be careful because my stuff may be stolen, and is trying to convince me not to even take my laptop for the first couple of weeks lol.

I'm taking it anyway, but im just interested if anyone has had their stuff stolen?
Nope. Endsleigh insurance is cheap though, and designed around students. Some halls provide it as part of the package. Plus, your door will have a lock.

Friend of mine had this laptop lock thing, which attatched to the back of her laptop, and which she then wrapped around her desk/radiator.
TBH, we were all pretty lax, security wise, we would go down the hall for a natter, with our doors open. (this wasn't a student halls, it was an appartment block with weird frenchies living in).
I agree with the 'hide stuff under your bed' shizzle (also, a tip, put your laptop under there if you go out drinking. It makes it waaaay to much effort to get out and drunkenly facebook/TSR when you get back in)
Appart from Money, i don't have anything that valuable anyway.

A friend used to put green food colouring in her milk. No one stole it after that

I remember reading somewhere that student theft tends to occur without breaking and entering.

Yes, it seems like the best idea in the world to leave your door constantly open for Freshers, but anyone remotely inclined to steal something will also take advantage of that fact!

So always - ALWAYS - lock it if you're not in there
