“I’m in Dobree House in Charles Morris – my room is spacious and there is a huge desk which I absolutely love. Charles Morris is in the perfect location, with brand new facilities and an excellent common room. The staff and Residence Life Assistants here are so sweet and helpful and are there if you ever need anything. I’m also so close to everything on the campus.”
Sophie Buck, BSc Medical Sciences

Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) cladding has not been used in the construction of Charles Morris Hall.

Charles Morris Hall also has many features that enable the safe evacuation of individuals, including a fire detection and alarm system that exceeds legislative requirements. The automatic L (Life) type alarm system ensures that all areas of your residence are covered by detection, including bedrooms, kitchens, plant rooms, and communal areas. Other fire safety systems installed for your protection include:

  • Fire containment between rooms, flats and areas within buildings. Walls, ceilings and door sets are designed to resist and prevent the spread of fire long enough for you to safely escape the building.
  • A dry riser system to be used by the fire brigade in a situation where they want to use their fire hoses on any level of your building.
  • Fire extinguishers and firefighting blankets in kitchens throughout the building(s).
  • A firefighting lift/elevator for use by fire fighters to assist them to get quick access to all building floors to put out a fire and help residents leave the building.(in Storm Jameson East)

In addition, we operate a system where local staff and fire wardens are trained to undertake proactive and reactive fire safety duties, which include building inspections and routine fire safety checks.
