Staying Safe

Forms of ID on a night out

Please be aware, Police Scotland have advised us of the following:

"Any UK Passport that is lost by its owner, then recovered as Found Property and handed in to the police, cannot be returned to its owner once it has been out with their control. 

Passports lodged as Found Property by the police must be returned to the Passport Office in line with Home Office guidelines. 

We would encourage students to leave their passports at home, and use a Provisional/Drivers Licence as an alternative form of ID".
