Heating maintenance

Due to extensive maintenance and repair to the heating system we are going to continue to have problems with supply until this round of maintenance is complete. I am advising everybody to dress warmly as we cannot know at this stage which sections of the building will be effected. Wherever possible, other sources of heating will be sourced. Please consider the forecasts as we move into the colder weather and ensure that all students dress to the conditions.  - Simon Vaughan
