Student Apartments and Lister House Weekly Update (11 January)
ECG will be carrying out the monthly water temperature checks across Student Apartments on Thursday the 17th and Friday the 18th of January. On this visit, they will also be disinfecting all shower heads. Shower heads will be disconnected for a period of time so this can be carried out.

We will email you when access is required for repairs or regular checks and tests that we need to carry out so please check your emails regularly for the latest information about upcoming maintenance work. If you have reported a repair and it has not been fixed within the timeframe you expected please contact us for an update.
The next movie night will take place on the 23rd of January. If you have ideas or suggestions for social events in your area please speak to the LSA team.
The 25th January is Burns Night and some Scottish themed snacks will be left out in communal areas to celebrate the Bard. To find out more about Burns celebrations, the Celtic Connections festival and other local events see What’s On January.

Weekly fire alarm tests
We test the fire alarms across Student Apartments on Wednesday mornings and at Lister House on Thursday mornings each week. You will usually hear one or two short bursts of the alarm while this is carried out. If the alarm sounds continuously at any time please evacuate the building as quickly as you can in a safe manner. There will be a fire drill and you will receive further information about this before it takes place.
There have been a couple of problems with blocked drains recently at Student Apartments. Find ways to help prevent this here.
We’ve had complaints from some residents of a strong smell of smoke in areas of Student Apartments and at Lister House. Cigarette ends have also been littering some of our outside spaces. Smokers should smoke well away from buildings and dispose of cigarette ends responsibly and with care.
