This article provides information on gas safety in halls of residence.

In the University halls of residence all gas appliances are checked regularly and copies of gas safety records are available from your halls reception.


If you smell gas inside your accommodation:

  • turn the gas supply off at the safety valve
  • open doors and windows to let the gas escape
  • Do not light any naked flames (lighter, match, candle, and so on)
  • Do not touch any electrical switches: turning a light on or off can ignite escaping gas
  • Once you've followed the above steps, please contact your Hall Reception as a matter of urgency.


Outside working hours please contact University Security Lodge:
