Halls of residence
Loughborough University has 17 halls of residence on (or very close to) campus. All of them offer a unique experience and there is something for everyone.
At Loughborough we take fire safety very seriously. Our buildings have been designed for your safety and we have our own dedicated Fire Officer whose role is to continually monitor and improve the fire standards across our campuses. We seek to go beyond Fire Safety Regulations, we have strict safety procedures in place and meet, and in some cases exceed, the statutory requirements.
We have comprehensive fire detection systems throughout our halls of residences, both in bedrooms and throughout the stairs, corridors and critical space, which gives us early warning of any issues. The fire detection system trigger alarms locally, in some halls via pagers for an immediate response from local trained staff and directly to our Security team.
We also don’t just rely on technology, in the event of an alarm our trained wardens and sub-wardens who live in the building will act quickly to investigate and deal with issues. This is backed up by our experienced Security team.
It is also our policy to evacuate the whole building immediately and make sure that everyone is safe. If you have concerns please do not hesitate to speak to a member of our Health and Safety team.
