If you are a student and are locked out, locked in or have lost your keys, The Lock Guys provide a 24-Hour professional discounted locksmith service for all students between the ages of 16 and 24.

We know how hard it is for Students to make ends meet most of the time, but this doesn't mean their security and safety should be at risk. Therefore, we offer a specialised locksmith service for all student residents between the ages of 16 and 24.

Student houses are not the safest or most secure places at the best of times, but we can take steps together to ensure you are as secure as possible away from home and we can also offer advice on keeping your belongings safe and secure.

Houses and lodgings that are regularly lived in by students have a much higher rate of burglary, this is due to the fact most thieves know there are going to be high instances of people with expensive laptops, phones and similar devices laying around and as students are often lax about security they see halls and residences as easy pickings. Students are amongst the most at risk of any age of the UK population.

If you are living in student accommodation or halls of residence there are some steps you can take to ensure you are at less of a risk. Here are a few things The Lock Guys recommend:

  • Always check the locks on your accommodation before moving in. If you are unsure have the locks changed.
  • If the lock appears faulty always tell a member of staff or the owner of the property and have them fix it at the earliest opportunity.
  • Always lock your doors and shut or lock windows, keep fire doors shut and keep your valuables out of sight whilst you are out.
  • Always keep your phone with you at all times. Don’t leave it where it can be stolen.
  • Before you go away to College or Uni, security mark your valuables.
  • Ask your parents or check your own insurance to see if it covers you whilst on campus or in student accommodation.
  • Don’t leave spare keys laying around.
  • Always lock your bedroom door.
  • Don’t give away information to would be thieves on Social Media, we know it’s hard but sometimes it’s best to not advertise it all over Facebook.
  • Always keep in touch with your parents and let them know you are safe.
  • If you are unsure of anything tell a member of staff.
  • Don’t get so drunk that you can’t remember where you left your valuables or keys. We know you probably will but try not to make a habit of it.
  • If you are in any doubt about your personal security or safety, inform staff or call the police.

If you are getting no joy from staff and are concerned about the security of your room or residence you can either call The Lock Guys to check it all over or get your parents to give us a call .
