Rules and regulations in halls

Your licence agreement
If you are living on campus or you are interested in living on campus, you can view a copy of our current halls licence agreement online. If you need a copy of your licence agreement, please email stating your student ID number in your request.
Student Disciplinary Regulations
While you are on your course at Edge Hill University, you have agreed to the Student Regulations, which incorporates the Student Code of Behaviour. This is applicable to all students whether you live on campus or in the private sector off campus.
Overnight guests policy
Guests are allowed to stay in your halls of residence, however you must adhere to the following policy: You must complete an Overnight Guest Request Form at least three days before your guest is due to arrive on campus. This form should be completed each time you are planning for a visitor to stay in on-campus accommodation. The guest must be aged 18 or over. You are only allowed 1 guest in your room overnight at any one time. The guest cannot stay for longer than 2 consecutive nights. There is no limit on the number of times a guest can stay within a month, as long as they do not stay on campus for longer than two consecutive nights and there is a 5 day break in between. You are responsible for the behaviour of your guest – if they breach the Student Disciplinary Regulations, you may be sanctioned for their actions.
Contents insurance
By partnering with Endsleigh, we’ve arranged contents insurance for all our students staying with us in our residence at no cost to you. It is important all students confirm their cover to ensure you understand what is and isn’t covered, policy excess – the amount you pay when you make a claim, how to make a claim, personalise cover. We understand students have a limited budget so Endsleigh have launched brand new, unique student insurance options. They have been designed to cover the risks that you may encounter whilst living in student accommodation and away from home.

Emergency procedures

Providing a safe environment for our students, staff and wider community is a primary concern of the University. In order to achieve our goal of ensuring you are protected and properly supported should an emergency occur, we need you to take responsibility for familiarising yourself with our emergency procedure.

An emergency on campus is any accidental or deliberate incident that could threaten the safety of the University’s community, property or environment. In the event of an emergency you should immediately contact Campus Support.

You should call Campus Support in the event that any of the following occurs:

  • Urgent first aid is required.
  • There is a fire.
  • An accident has occurred.
  • A crime is taking place.

You can find out more about what to do in an emergency on our critical incident support webpages.

Fire safety

The Accommodation Team works closely with Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service to ensure that information and advice provided to students is accurate and in line with current legislation. As part of their induction at the start of semester every residential student must attend a fire safety talk, which is delivered by Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service.

It is important that you know about the dangers of fire, what you can do to guard against the risk of fire and how you can ensure that you stay safe in halls. The pictures here demonstrate the devastating effect that a fire can have once it takes hold.

Please also read government advice about how you can protect yourself and your belongings from fire.
