There has been theft in the Forum. Students are not aware enough of the risks. It is hard to keep check on the whole building.
Manager Ludy Zeeuwen has no idea who could be behind the thefts. 'The Forum is an open building, and that is how we want it. But it does mean anyone can come in. It is mainly students and teachers who come in, but there are also visitors, suppliers and maintenance people. You can't tell who has bad intentions. From the bridges you have a good view of the foyers. And you can easily see if a group leaves a classroom.'
Students are a bit easygoing about leaving their belongings, says Zeeuwen: 'The message is: Don't leave your belongings unattended. Not even just for the break. And if something is stolen from you, report it to the police. Tell us at the reception desk in the Forum too. We can look at our camera footage, and if we notice anything on it we'll take it to the police.'
