“Montague Burton is a beautiful site, with most bedrooms looking inwards towards the trees and grassy areas, perfect for lazing around on when the sunshine comes out. We even have a barbeque area that you can hire out for your friends which is very popular too. It turns into a wonderful little community that’s only five minutes from campus.”

Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) cladding has not been used in the construction of Montague Burton Residence.

Montague Burton Residence 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.
  • Fire extinguishers and firefighting blankets in kitchens throughout the building(s).

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.
