If you’re new to university or just returning for another year, you’ll know how many distractions day to day life can throw at you. For many of us, this means home security is at the bottom of our priority list.
Unfortunately, this means student houses can become an easy target as they’re often left insecure. For example, if you’re flat sharing, there are more electrical items to steal like laptops. Luckily, there are plenty of easy steps you can take to help deter burglars.
Firstly, it’s important to make sure everyone you’re living with is on the same page, so have a chat with your flatmates about getting in the routine of locking up. Making sure your flat is tidy and that any valuables or keys are out of sight is another good habit and if you’re planning on going away, take your valuable possessions with you and ask a neighbour or friend to collect any mail.
For more helpful home security tips, check out the below guide from Sainsbury’s Bank – Money Matters. Remember to always talk to your landlord or letting agent if you have any concerns or need security repairs.

What our students say
Living at The Junxion has been a very homely experience for me, as from moving in on my first year of university I was a little nervous about living on my own so far away from my home in Liverpool; but that all change once I moved into my new room, as the buildings interior design gives off such a relaxing vibe that will allow you to study in peace. Although the staff in the building where so very comforting to speak to and will offer guidance on pretty much anything, as they are always there to help. Other than that I would highly recommend The Junxion to anyone as I am currently a second year living with my friend at The Junxion and I couldn’t feel more at home.
Searched for loads of student accommodation before I found this gem amongst the rest. Really nice sizeable apartments in a great student busy location. Would highly recommend Mezzino.
Excelente ubicacion, atencion y servicio. Muy cuidado todo, las recepcionistas siempre ayudando y dando atencion. Lo recomiendo.
I have been living in Brickworks about 7 months. Brickworks is a great place to live in. The location is really convenient (close to city center, good public transportation, near the supermarket and so on...). The buildings are pretty new (well maintained and very clean) it also offers study rooms, cinema room, gym, roof top party room and terrace. There are a lot of common areas for entertainment (PlayStation, Pool, table tennis...). Additionally, free coffee and tea services are amazing!
Brickworks team all of them are AWESOME. They are always up for helping... I highly recommend the Brickworks for people who need a place to call home... Thanks for everything.
I loved it there !
Brickworks is a great home for whoever comes to live in Dublin for a while.
The friendliness of the staff along with the welcoming environment make for a great place to live. When I first entered the room, it felt like a hotel room : comfortable, modern and very liveable.
The neighborhood is as calm as it gets and you get to the most animated streets in 15mn.
The sunset view on the rooftop is the cherry on the cake.
Millstone is a brilliant place to live, Ive just book for my 3rd year. The staff are kind and caring. I have love living at Millstone as it has given me independence and a bigger family.
