Keep your belongings in your room and be clever with storage, so your personal items don’t spill into the communal spaces.

Security can be an issue too with people coming in and out of your home that you don’t know, so it’s worth having some lockable storage in your room for high-value items.

Be vigilant and as a house agree to always lock your doors and windows to prevent break-ins.

If you’ve got a house alarm, use it!
