HEALTH AND SAFETY FEATURES IN OUR STUDENT RESIDENCES

The US and the UK have different rules, codes, and policies in regards to fire prevention, health, and safety. Please see our statement below on current facilities and procedures in our student residences halls. 

Our FIE facilities (Foundation House, Metrogate House, and student residences) either meet or, more often, exceed the requirements and recommendations of not only the UK health and safety laws but also ANUK, the national accreditation network for tenants, landlords, and housing providers.

With regards to fire safety, due in some part to the historical structure of the building, our student residences do not have sprinkler systems. However, all kitchens are provided with fire extinguishers and fire blankets, which are checked weekly by our Facilities Team. Additional fire extinguishers are located throughout our facilities, along with fire call points and alarms/sensors. The alarm system is checked weekly and FIE runs a full residence evacuation drill in our housing (students leaving the residence) during the spring and fall semesters, with our average evacuation time under the recommended times. Our Residence Life and Facilities Teams participate in these drills and are additionally trained in Fire Marshal and First Aid skills. The evacuation route for each residence is stated during the Residence Life Supervisor’s Welcome Meetings (generally conducted the night of arrival) and a more thorough coverage of health and safety rules and regulations is done during the Housing Orientation.
