Each room is fitted with two 13 amp square pin sockets, but the power rating in the bedroom is rated at a maximum of 500 watts.
As a guide, radios, CD players, iPod docks and portable TVs will work, but straighteners and hairdryers over 500 watts will fuse your own and other study bedrooms as well. We encourage all students to have their electrical equipment PAT tested prior to moving into Halls to ensure safety.
For additional safety, the 13 amp plugs used on small appliances in your bedroom should be fitted with three amp fuses. The use of cooking equipment such as toasters, kettles and fridges are forbidden in bedrooms under the Terms and Conditions of your contract. Only the equipment provided by the hall may be used in the kitchens.
Most of the wattage in the Halls does allow for computers with limited additions, such as a printer. All rooms have wireless and wired internet access.
Regular electrical inspections are carried out and students found to have broken College safety regulations will be charged for repairs and/or fined.
