Moving away from home to a new community can cause worries and concerns about personal safety. In an ideal world we should, within reason, be able to go and do whatever we require. Unfortunately, in the 21st century this is not always the case and therefore you should make every effort to minimise the risk to yourself and others in your new community.
It is however, very important to remember that Surrey is one of the safest counties in England in which to live and work. There is a level of crime per head of population that is forty percent below the national average and Royal Holloway is ranked as the safest university area to live in.
We have a Campus Watch scheme in operation which encourages staff and students to look out for each other on campus and in the local community, reporting anything suspicious to security or Surrey Police.
