Studying after hours - your safety and security

There are important safety and security precautions if you study late on campus. You can call AUT Security on +64 9 921 9997 if you see any suspicious behaviour.

Tips for your safety when studying late

  • Avoid walking alone at night. Travel with a friend or arrange a security escort
  • Use well-illuminated routes and park in areas that will be well lit and populated when you return
  • Be alert and walk purposefully. A person who is confident, walking upright and briskly is less likely to become a victim
  • Carry your keys in your hand for quick access when approaching your building or vehicle
  • If you think someone is following you, go to a place where you know there are other people and telephones
  • Carrying a mobile phone may make you feel more secure
  • Tell someone where you are and the time you expect to return
  • Check doors are locked at night. Do not assume somebody else will do it.
