Room safety (SC)
If you are renting a room it’s a good idea to keep the door locked at all times even when you’re in it. The same goes for windows if they are easily accessible from outside or you have small children with you who can easily get to the window from inside.
If you’re worried about security – perhaps you’re staying in a long corridor of rooms – it’s a good idea to indicate your room is occupied even when you’re out. You can do this by using a "do not disturb" sign or leaving the lights on.
If you want to be extra safe try and get a room with a peephole so you can see who is outside before you open the door. And you can also place a wedge under your door if you feel uneasy.
