Safety procedures

Many of our academic and residential buildings are multi-storey and if you are likely to need help from the University to evacuate from a multi-storey building you are visiting in the event of an emergency (for example a fire alarm).

Please let the department you are visiting know this in advance, indicating the type of assistance you would need, so that they can make arrangements to help you should the need arise.
