New students at Bath Spa University are getting drug spiking test cards in a bid to improve their personal safety.
Avon and Somerset police figures show 41 reported incidents of drink spiking in 2015, rising to 85 in 2018.
The police said some cases were not reported, so the figure may be higher.

She said the union was working with the university to include the testing kits in welcome packs.
