Lancaster University welcomes visitors.

However brief your visit might be, we want to ensure that your stay with us is a safe one and that you know what to do if you need help or assistance in an emergency

Entry to Buildings

Most buildings are freely accessible to visitors but there are certain rooms or areas within them where entry is prohibited for reasons of safety.

Notices are displayed indicating these prohibitions. Please do not enter these areas unless you have received permission from a member of staff and are accompanied.

Children

Children should be supervised at all times whilst on University premises.

Road Safety

Although the campus roads are under the control of the University we would ask you to exercise the same care and consideration as you would were you on a public highway.

The campus roads are relatively narrow, so do not park your car at the side of the road; use the car parking areas.

Please observe the Highway Code whether you are walking or driving.

There is a 20 mph speed restriction on campus.

Emergency Procedures

If you discover a fire whilst you are in a building

If You Hear the Fire Alarm

Emergency Assisted Evacuation

If you hear the fire alarm sounding and you are disabled or in any way unable to use stairs make your way [with assistance if necessary]to a staircase enclosure or refuge point.

From here you may either:
a) ask someone to inform Security that you require assistance if there is no emergency voice communication system
or
b) Use the voice communication system to summon assistance.
refugepoint

In both instances it will be safe to ask someone to remain with you until Security and the Fire Service arrive.

If You Have an Accident

If You Need First Aid

In Any Other Emergency

Where you may need, for example, the Police or an ambulance, dial 999 on an internal phone and give details to the Security Officer.

If you cannot locate an internal phone and you use your mobile phone then you must also phone University Security to alert them. They will be able to assist the emergency services to ensure that there is no delay in treatment.

IF YOU NEED ADVICE OR INFORMATION ON ANY ASPECT OF GENERAL SAFETY, FIRE PREVENTION OR PERSONAL SAFETY, PLEASE CONTACT EITHER THE UNIVERSITY SAFETY OFFICE (EXTENSION 10629) OR UNIVERSITY SECURITY (EXTENSION 94541/92091)
