Lock doors and windows

If you live with other students, have the last-departing person check windows and doors.

Take care when reducing heat

To prevent pipes from freezing, heat your dwelling to at least 55 degrees. Close windows: A one-inch opening near a pipe could cause it to freeze and break.

Vehicles left behind should be secured

Park in a well-lit area or secure location. Remove valuables. Lock doors.

Keep records

Consider taking home items such as jewelry, electronics and computers.  If you must leave items of value behind, record serial numbers, brand names and purchase dates/prices. Photos of valuables can aid authorities in identifying property lost to theft or disaster.
