At school, I'll have it locked up near a bunch of other bikes with a U-lock and chain, and never overnight (I made the mistake of leaving it over the weekend once and lost a wheel, hence why I now plan to get a chain for the front wheel).

At home, it'll be in the house.

Edit: it is unlikely to get stolen during the day, and the incident I mentioned was over a summer semester weekend.
