This page details how to ensure that you stay safe on a night out.
For many young people, moving away to University is their first glimpse of independence. However, what many students are not aware of is the damage that alcohol can cause to you when consumed in excess. Drinking alcohol in moderation is fine, but please be aware that whilst under the influence of alcohol, you can make yourself vulnerable and are more likely to be a victim of crime. As well as this, regular excessive drinking can also be detrimental to your health.
Visit the UPSU Welfare website for more tips on drinking responsibly.
