Teesside University Students’ Union has requested funding for all students living in rented accommodation near the University in the INT1 area with ‘ice cards’
Ice card will help students keep a record of essential contact information.
The Student’s Union also want to buy 3,000 property marking kits and 325 bag hangers for the students.
Students can use the kits to write their details on any valuable equipment, which they may have. The bag hangers can be used to hang a bag from a table rather than putting it on the floor. This is aimed at reducing bag thefts.
Approximately 3000 students live in rented accommodation in the surrounding area of the University (including Ayresome, Central, Newport, Linthorpe, Park and Gresham Wards).
Students in this area are vulnerable to theft due to living in an unfamiliar area in unfamiliar properties – some with less than ideal security measures.
