Q. What happens if I have more than one maintenance repair to report at the same time?
A. You should complete a maintenance request form for each repair.
Q. How do I report a fault that is not in my room?
A. If the fault you need to report is not in your room, you can still log the repair. Just log the request as normal but type in a description of the area where the repair is required into the 'Further Info' field, eg 1st Floor Kitchen.
Q. My sockets have overloaded, how can I prevent this happening again?
A. You will probably bring with you many items of electrical equipment for use in your room. Electrical equipment which is faulty can cause electric shocks or electrocution. In addition, electrical appliances are often the cause of fires, both due to faults or misuse of the equipment. Free of charge testing of your equipment is arranged at the start of the year to identify any fault.
The total combined watts of your appliances at use at any one time in your room cannot exceed 1000W, except in Willow Walk, as this will overload the sockets.
If the power in your sockets fails, please try pushing the re-set button on the socket. If this is not available in your room or does not restore the power, please log your request by completing the online maintenance request form.
