Ground rules

At HEC Montréal, like everywhere else, certain security rules are recommended.

  • Never leave personal effects such as a computer, calculator, cell phone or bag unattended, be it in a classroom or study room, at the library or in the cafeteria. It only takes a second for a thief to make off with your belongings.
  • If you have to leave your computer unattended, make sure to use a security cable. You can purchase one at the Coop HEC Montréal computer store.
  • Never leave valuables in your locker. Always use a good padlock to safeguard your locker.
  • Use an etcher to permanently mark your laptop computer, calculator and other valuables.
  • Bring found objects to the nearest security office.
  • Be aware of your surroundings and people who appear to be loitering in the corridors and study rooms. Should you notice any unusual behaviour, report it immediately to Security personnel.

Although Montréal is ranked as one of North America’s safest big cities, the old adage that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure still applies. To be on the safe side, it is always best to:

  • Lock the doors to your residence and car.
  • Never leave valuables within view or where they can be reached, be it on a table or in a bag, locker or car. Visible items, even if under lock and key, are tempting to thieves.
  • Lock your bike to a bike rack using a theft-resistant lock, making sure that it passes through the frame and both wheels (remove the front wheel if necessary). Remove any parts, such as a seat, that can be removed with a quick-release mechanism and, if necessary, take them with you. Note that lamp posts, fences and other urban structures are not sanctioned as bike stands; use them at your own risk.
  • Never open your door to anyone you are not expecting or do not know.

Computer etching

Etching is an easy way to permanently label your belongings and make them much more difficult for thieves to resell. Etched valuables are much less attractive to potential thieves.

HEC Montréal has joined forces with the Montréal police (SPVM) in a theft-prevention program called Projet Intro@versité. Officers from neighbourhood police station 26 lend an etcher to students wishing to label their valuables, such as a computer, calculator, video player, bike, etc. We highly recommend that you take advantage of this free service.

The police station covering the campus is neighbourhood station PDQ 26.
5995 Décarie Boulevard (near Van Horne)
Phone: 514-280-0126 (for emergencies, call 911)
