Lock for wheel-bender stand

My uni has those stupid wheel-bender bike stands so I don't think a ULock is going to be any use. Need some suggestions on how to secure my bike. I've got quick releases on both wheels.

    what does your insurance say you need?

    Haven't got any insurance yet as I only got the bike yesterday (Carrera Fury). All I've got to lock it down at the moment is a £6 halfords loop and another cheap loop. The bike shed has a key lock, but quite often it doesn't lock properly, and I'm pretty sure the uni don't pay out if anything is stolen from the shed.

    EDIT: Just spoken to my mate as there's another shed with a proper lock on the door and stands that I can secure the frame to. Is a ULock enough, or should I secure the wheels too, and if so, will my current locks serve as enough of a deterrent for the wheels?
