Safety Issues in Student Accommodation Cannot Be Ignored

Student Accommodation Cannot Be Ignored

The safety of students and their accommodation has always been a key concern for us, and feeds into our Lincoln student accommodation accreditation scheme. It is therefore very disappointing that we are currently having to ask students living in The Gateway to move out of their accommodation because of fire safety concerns. We are in the process of working with the university to seek reassurance and assurance that systems are in place to prevent such a situation occurring again.

All rooms have smoke detectors, fire alarms and sprinkler systems. In addition, most residence halls have security cameras and one-way viewers in doorways (peep holes). All residents are required to keep windows closed and secured at all times unless the building is unoccupied or in an emergency situation. In such cases, a cellular phone may be used to contact campus police or fire officials.

Residents should use one-way viewers in doors to see who is outside before opening the door and should not block windows or access paths. Bicycles are not permitted in residential stairwells, hallways or lounges. Residents should use bike racks located near each facility. Bikes can be stored in apartments, suites and townhouses, if they do not interfere with the normal function of those areas.

A cellular phone is provided in each resident room and may be used to call the residence life staff, police or fire officials, if necessary. All residents are expected to follow the posted procedures for evacuation during an emergency or fire alarm.

Lincoln offers a vibrant nightlife scene packed into its small centre, with clubs and bars to suit all tastes. However, it is important to remember that this can be dangerous, especially if you are intoxicated. For this reason, it is important to have a safety plan in place and to always stay aware of your surroundings.

Additionally, alumni who have fond memories of their time in student accommodation are more likely to refer the institution to prospective students. Positive word-of-mouth recommendations from alumni can significantly impact the university’s reputation and enrollment numbers, attracting high-caliber students from around the world.

For those who are looking to live more independently, Lincoln has a variety of flats and houses to rent, many of which cater to students’ exact needs and requirements. This type of Lincoln student accommodation tends to have more private bedrooms and is often cheaper than a traditional hall or house share. Students often prefer renting this type of property with a group of friends.

The city’s student housing is situated all over Lincoln, but the most popular area is around Monks Road and Sincil Bank, which provide easy access to both University of Lincoln and Bishop Grosseteste University. These areas are also jam-packed with takeaways, pubs and shops offering the quintessential student experience. Students can find a wide range of new student rooms in these locations, including en suite accommodation, providing comfort and style with the added bonus of being close to the heart of the city.
