9.1 Students using College accommodation must take reasonable care for their own and others' safety. They must comply with the Health and Safety Policy, Codes of Practice and with the accommodation terms and conditions provided at the time of offer. Students must report to the Accommodation Office any situation which, in their opinion, constitutes a health hazard or involves the risk of injury.

9.3 Regular fire drills shall be held in all College accommodation and buildings must be evacuated when the alarm sounds unless during designated advertised testing times and must be evacuated when continually sounds.
