(22053) A High Kingsdown resident says he's furious after a "lost" student rang his doorbell at 2am to ask for help getting home.
In an email written at 2:42 am on 26 November 2022, the resident says: "A UoB student from [xx] High Kingsdown rang my doorbell repeatedly at 0200 this morning because they were 'lost, vulnerable and felt unsafe'."
The resident says he walked the student home.
"My priority was making sure he was safe. That being said, I am furious. ... having our doorbell repeatedly rung in the middle of the night terrified [my wife]. ... This incident is a really stark example of being disrupted that can be attributed to one individual in one house, but the reality is that the huge density of student houses, poor "policing" (by landlords and services) and an apparent worsening behaviour (by many students ...) disrupts us multiple times almost every night of term time."
