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

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 term 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.
