Keep calm and celebrate responsibly!
We know that the end of the academic year will be a time of celebration, all we ask is that you remember that wherever you are you are still an ambassador for the university. The end of summer term can cause worry for residents who need to get a full night’s sleep, including those with children who are taking exams. You can help us to allay these fears by keeping noise to a reasonable level.
As you celebrate and let your hair down remember to look out for each other on nights out. Make sure you only use licensed taxis, the Students’ Union have a Safer Taxi Scheme which includes provision for emergencies if you don’t have money for a taxi home http://www.su.nottingham.ac.uk/make-the-change/campaigns/safe-taxi-scheme/
Over 50% of burglaries in student areas occur through an open door or window and this continues to be a risk at empty properties throughout the summer if they aren’t secured properly. Please help to keep burglary figures in Nottingham low by locking all doors and windows when you leave for the summer.
Hopefully you have already seen the information about our end of term waste campaign ‘Don’t waste it, donate it’ detailing all the easy ways you can donate unwanted items and get rid of excess waste. We hope this guidance will make the task of clearing out your house/room as easy as possible. If you haven’t read it yet, it will only take you a couple of minutes to read here https://blogs.nottingham.ac.uk/offcampus/2017/06/01/dont-waste-it-donate-it/
That’s all from us- have a brilliant Summer!
