Fire Refuge Areas and PEEPS

The University of Warwick actively encourages all staff and students with a disability to make themselves known and are encouraged to complete an independent assessment, which will determine the level of assistance which may be required for safe evacuation of a building in an emergency.

If you feel that you need a Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan (PEEP) the Independent Assessment Tool will help the University identify the appropriate emergency response requirements and the assistance you may require.

This can be found via the following link here: Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan (PEEP) ( .

Refuge Points are designated areas within our buildings that are designed specifically for evacuation, whereby Community Safety can access you to evacuate you from the building. Refuge points will provide a minimum protection of 30 minutes. To know where your nearest refuge point is, you can search via the interactive map .

For people who are D/deaf

  • We provide a text relay service for people who are D/deaf, hearing impaired or have a speech impediment.
  • Our offices have audio induction loops, or if you contact us before your visit we can arrange a British Sign Language (BSL) interpreter.
