UUK Code of Practice

Lancaster University accommodation is approved by the Student Accommodation Code, which aims to ensure that students enjoy good quality accommodation.

All of our residences must comply with the regulations set by the Universities UK (UUK) Code of Practice for the Management of Student Housing. The Code ensures that residents benefit from adherence to clear policies and procedures relating to the following:

  • Health and safety
  • Maintenance
  • Environmental policy
  • Contractual responsibilities
  • Support services
  • Antisocial behaviour
  • Complaints

The Code indicates the main principles which should be observed and the essential requirements which must be met for formal accreditation.

The University is regularly audited on its compliance with the terms of the code.

You can find out more about our policies and procedures from the Residents' Handbook in your bedroom, or visit the UUK website for full details of the Code of Practice itself.
