    I can understand why you are concerned although security in my halls is rubbish.

    The block door doesn't lock, so anyone can walk in. The flatdoors do lock but no one [literally no one] locks them [I couldn't lock the door to my flat anyway as two of my flatmates don't take their keys out - they leave their room door open too]. I've had people [friends/family] walk into my room whilst I've been elsewhere in the flat and I've been none the wiser. I always make sure I lock my bedroom door though - I suggest you just make sure that door is always locked to in case the other doors are left unlocked.

    I would seriously start locking the doors. Might teach them to start taking their kys.

    One of my flatmates did the other night as she was drunk and annoyed with one of the lads. Made no difference - he just rang the called us [on the phone] until one of us let him in.

    There was an "incident" the other night when some drunken people came in at about 1am and started moving the furniture in the kitchen, like pulling the fridges out from under the counter, but we've not had anything go missing and all my valuables are in my room [locked]. It is something to do with the mentality of nearly everyone in these blocks - I don't know any flat that locks the door and know of a shockingly high number who don't lock their room doors.

    They must all feel safe I guess.
