With an average of 4 homes burgled in Newcastle Upon Tyne every day we are asking our student tenants to become extra vigilant. Home office statistics estimate that 1 in 3 students are a victim of crime. Students own more expensive consumer goods per head than the rest of the population. 70% of students own a computer or laptop and 86% have a mobile phone.
