Does your London Student Accommodation need security?


London has the most universities in the UK – it’s an academic hotspot. From Imperial College London to University College London, this city attracts dozens of students across the UK and even globally.

In fact, the London student accommodation market is the largest and most active in the country. 300,000 full-time students and 110,000 part-time students stay here. This means that there will be criminals looking for their next victim. Unfortunately, it could be another student, therefore having a security guard in place is important. 

There are many incidents where a university student in London gets attacked in their halls. This shouldn’t be happening. Our officers will ensure that strangers don’t enter the student accommodation and also look out for any anti-social behaviour inside. They’re also trained to identify and support students suffering from depression and stress.

The roles of a Student Accommodation Security Guard in London


Students shouldn’t have to worry about crime happening in their student accommodation as it’s their second home, however, unfortunately, it’s not something we can escape. However, it is possible to prevent an incident early by having a security guard in place. We cannot emphasise more how important it’s to have one. These are some of their duties:

  • Prevent anti-social behaviour:  the trained security guards will be alert 24/7, especially paying attention overnight as that’s when most crime happens. Your students will be thankful to have someone who is friendly and approachable while also quick to prevent any dangerous situation from happening in and around the student accommodation!
  • Deal with/resolve any incidents: our London guards are experienced and so will be able to deal with any rough situation. Students often make mistakes related to their personal safety. Our officers will be there to advise them and ensure that they stay safe at all times.
  • Provide a safe environment: students go to university to learn and succeed, and crime shouldn’t stop them from their goals. Our security guards will look after everyone and ensure that there is an environment in which all of the London students can reach their full potential

What Will Our London Student Accommodation Guards Do?

Our London student accommodations guards will have many responsibilities. Some of these are:


  • Controlling access points.
  • Supervising entry to the premises through ID checks or authorization processes to ensure only authorized individuals gain access.
  • Conducting patrols around the property to deter criminal activity, ensure the safety of residents, and identify and address any potential hazards.
  • Monitoring security cameras and alarm systems to detect any suspicious activities or breaches in security.
  • Providing assistance or information to residents and guests. This may involve offering directions, explaining policies, or providing guidance during emergency situations.
  • Supplying student accommodations with a strong security presence. This presence can be used to deter potential thieves.
How To Keep Your Student Accommodation Secure

Security guards are an excellent way to keep uni accommodations safe. But there are also a few precautions students themselves can implement to enhance the safety of their room when they are away.

  • Ensure all doors and windows are securely locked.
  • Refrain from sharing your location on social media platforms.
  • Consider installing additional door locks or a door jammer for added security.
  • Keep valuables in a safe within your room.
  • Leave a light on to create the illusion of occupancy.
  • Avoid allowing strangers access to your room whenever possible.


Alternatively, if you’re a student housing manager you can also employ these measures to boost the safety of the premises:

  • Install automated gates at entry points.
  • Installing CCTV cameras throughout the property.
  • Implement a visitor sign-in system to track visitors’ presence on the premises.
