Licence Agreement

When you moved into your accommodation you entered into a contract with the University and signed your Licence Agreement. The agreement clarifies the University’s responsibility in terms of the standard of accommodation you can expect; but also the University’s expectations of your behaviour whilst you live in our accommodation.

endsleigh insurance

The University has arranged some contents insurance for you with Endsleigh, the No.1 student insurance provider. This cover does not protect laptops and phones or other items when you are outside your room, or all risks inside your room.  It is important for you to check this cover, so please follow the steps below to ensure you fully understand the protection provided.

Enter in your policy number HH1216 at endsleigh.co.uk/reviewcover to check your policy details.

Review cover to:

  • check what is covered;
  • check key exclusions and limitations;
  • check your policy excess;
  • check how to make a claim;
  • extend and personalise your cover to protect laptops, phones and other valuables.

It is important to find out exactly what you are covered for, as you may find that the contents cover is not sufficient and you need to extend it to protect all of your possessions both inside and outside of your room.

Fire safety

Please ensure that you have watched the BSU halls of residence fire safety video

The most important part of fire safety is prevention. False alarms can be caused by carelessness, in particular by leaving cooking unattended. All residences are equipped with sensitive smoke and heat detectors.

Please ensure that you have read the fire safety guidelines in your residents handbook. Any student who breaches the fire safety regulations will be subject to the Residents’ Disciplinary Procedure. Interference with safety equipment will constitute a criminal offence and is likely to result in termination of your licence agreement.

There is a £50 penalty for covering over, removing or disabling any fire saving equipment.

Fire Evacuation: In the event of a fire alarm sounding, immediately evacuate the building and make your way to your designated Fire Assembly Point. The student accommodation team carry out test evacuations once per term, failure to evacuate will result in a £50 fine.
