International Student Support


Belfast is one of the safest cities in Europe.  However, there are dangers wherever you go and it is important that you take responsibility for your own personal safety.  Here are some tips to help keep you safe:

  • Never walk home alone at night - stay with a group of friends or order a taxi;
  • Keep you money secure and out of sight;
  • Keep your bank cards safe and separate from any note of your pin numbers;
  • When you are not in your student accommodation keep your windows and doors closed and locked, even if you will only be out for a short time;
  • If you are worried or concerned about anything, contact International Student Support;
  • You can contact Queen's Security 24 hours a day if you need help.  Their number is 028 9097 5099.  You should save this number to your phone in case you need to contact them in an emergency.
