Campus fault reporting

Please be aware that any faults logged via this form are reviewed from 8am-5pm Monday to Wednesday, and 8am-4pm on Thursday and Fridays. Any faults logged via this form outside these times will be reviewed on the next working day. Please do not provide any personal information on the fault report form.

If you require urgent assistance due to a fault in campus accommodation please contact Student Services. Outside of Student Services opening hours please contact Community Safety on 024765 22083 or 024 7652 2222 in an emergency.

If you are a student who is in self-isolation due to covid-19 and you report a fault, the maintenance team will only attend if it is urgent or deemed to be an emergency.

Please provide your telephone number when reporting the fault and notify your Residences Manager. We will make a note if the fault is to be attended to after your self-isolation period ends. You will not need to report it again.

If you have a request for a repair, you can complete an online fault report form. If the fault is urgent, for example a power failure, please also report the fault to Senate House Student Services on 024765 22280 during Student Services opening hours, or Community Safety on 024765 22083 (or 024 7652 2222 in an emergency) outside these hours.

Please note that the forms will only be checked between 8am-5pm Monday to Wednesday, excluding bank holidays and 8am - 4pm on Thursdays and Fridays. Faults reported after this time or over the weekend will not be reviewed until the next working day.
