Free to focus on friends, fun, and (of course) hitting the books

Whether you’re walking home from late night of studying, out blowing off steam or enjoying some peace in your secret spot; Guard Llama lets you truly concentrate on what you’re doing. What’s more, Guard Llama’s discreet design means you’re the only one who knows it’s there.

Here are some important things you can do to stay safe:

  • Keep an eye on your belongings. If you’re at the library, keep your laptop, phone and material with you at all times. If you have to take a bathroom break, take your things with you.
  • Keep doors and windows locked, even when heading down the hall for a shower.
  • Don’t let anyone into your residence hall that you don’t know. Have them wait outside while you go and find the person they’re looking for. You’re not being a jerk, you’re making sure the whole building is safe.
  • Closely guard your room keys. If you lose them, report it, get the locks changed and get new keys for you and your roommate.
  • Get a lock for your laptop.
  • Load emergency phone numbers into your phone. Put the number of campus police in your phone on speed dial. Your school probably has a short list of important numbers for security, so load those into your phone as well.
  • Use the buddy system when going out at night, or to a party or to a study session.
  • Use the campus escort system if you do find yourself alone at night. They’re there to help you get home safe, so call.
  • The more alert you are, the better. Be aware of people and vehicles around you.
  • Tell others where you are going and when you’ll be back. Do this discreetly. You want your roommate to know, not the whole world.
  • Trust your instincts. If you feel uncomfortable, get yourself to a safe environment ASAP. This can be a well-lit place or where groups of people are hanging out. If you think you are in danger, scream, run, yell or honk your horn if in the car. Often being noisy and troublesome is enough to scare someone off.
  • Consider a self-defense class to learn simple, effective moves you can take.
