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.
  • Once the request has been submitted, a Campus Life Manager will either approve or deny your request and you will be informed of this decision within two working days of submitting the request form.
  • You are only allowed one guest in your room overnight at once.
  • The guest must be aged 18 or over.
  • The guest cannot stay for longer than two consecutive nights.
  • There is no limit on the number of times a guest can stay within a week or month, as long as they do not stay on campus for longer than two consecutive nights.
  • You are responsible for the behaviour of your guest. If they breach the regulations, you may be sanctioned for their actions.

Emergency procedure

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.

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. Plus you’ll be entered into a prize draw, courtesy of Endsleigh.

Visit confirm your cover to see:

  • what is and what 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.

Can I apply to stay in halls?

If you are going into your 2nd or 3rd year and you are interested in living in halls, you will be able to apply to live on campus as a senior student. Applications will advertised before the Christmas holidays each year.

We are unable to guarantee rooms to all applicants, as priority for rooms in halls are given to new students and a students with medical requirements (authorised following the submission of appropriate evidence).

Any current students are advised to explore options in the private sector. For more information on how to access vacancies, please visit our living off campus page.

For regular updates on senior student applications, you can connect with Student Services on Facebook and Twitter.

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.
