Staff notice: University heating

The Estates and Facilities Management team are preparing to switch on the heating across campus. The team would like colleagues and tenants across campus to note the following:

  • Daily temperature monitoring will now be conducted to determine when the heating will be switched on 

  • The heating will not be switched on before 1 October 2023 

  • To save energy and help us meet our net zero carbon emission reduction targets, the heating temperatures will remain at their revised levels of 18-20 degrees Celsius  

  • The process to switch the University heating on will take several days, and Building Management Systems will control individual building thermostats. 

The University’s Heating Policy is available to view online and contains further information including the heating season and times, energy conservation and energy costs.
