The University Halls of Residence have clear guidelines to assist in fire prevention.
You agree that deliberate or negligent behaviour resulting in a fire or activation of the fire alarms is a breach of contract. Action will be taken against those found responsible, which will result in required attendance at the University Remedial Fire Safety Workshop and may result in a consideration of major misconduct under disciplinary procedures, plus full replacement costs to the University. In addition to University disciplinary proceedings, criminal acts will normally result in information being passed to the police for criminal proceedings and could include a fine of up to £2,000.
