Electrical Safety Inspections

Electrical Safety Checks

The College offers students a free visual electrical safety inspection on all portable electrical appliances and plug adaptors that you bring to use at College.

Plugs and plug adaptors must be British Standard.  If not, you will not be able to use these on the College site.  British Standard plug adaptors will be available to purchase at the Porters’ Lodge.

Postgraduate students will be visited in their accommodation for safety checks.

Undergraduates have designated sessions which are listed below. This is a mandatory requirement and all undergraduate students must attend.

Please bring all electrical appliances, plug adaptors and leads (leads only for laptops, iPads and printers, and no need to bring brand new items).

Please print (or collect from the relevant Tutorial Office) and complete the form below and bring it along with you on the day.
