Preparing for winter

Preparing for winter

Previous severe weather events have impacted on our communities in a variety of ways from flooding to power cuts. The University prepares for all events, focusing on student and staff welfare, and the running of our estate. Here is some advice so you can also be winter ready.

Winter Planning

There are a number of steps you can take to prepare yourself in winter, travel in bad weather and for powering through power cuts.
