Security on Campus

Campus Security has become concerned over the number of iPods and laptop computers being reported stolen from all campuses. Most of these thefts are preventable by following some simple rules:

  • Wherever you are studying, be it libraries, open spaces or computer labs do not leave these items unattended even for a minute.
  • If you are using lockers to store valuable items please make sure you re-lock your locker every time you use it.

Students who work out of offices have to take particular note

  • Do not leave your office unlocked while not occupied, even for a short time (coffee or printing)
  • Make sure that you secure valuable items in a locked secure place while not working in your office space.

Security encourages you to report any incident or loss of property. Contact us on the emergency line 8888 or at the Security Office, Cotton Street.t

Salient is a magazine. Salient is a website. Salient is an institution founded in 1938 to cater to the whim and fancy of students of Victoria University. We are partly funded by VUWSA and partly by gold bullion that was discovered under a pile of old Salients from the 40's. Salient welcomes your participation in debate on all the issues that we present to you, and if you're a student of Victoria University then you're more than welcome to drop in and have tea and scones with the contributors of this little rag in our little hideaway that overlooks Wellington.
