Salting and gritting

During periods of severe winter weather - as alerted by the Met Office's National Severe Weather Warning Service - the Grounds Team will respond by snow clearing and salting and gritting the principal routes on campus.

We also encourage staff and students who may have concerns regarding safe access/egress on campus to use the grit bins, which are found at many locations on Streatham and St Luke's Campuses and at the halls of residence.

All staff, students and visitors are advised, during periods of severe weather, to:

  • Delay their journey onto campus until after 8.15am
  • Use the principal routes when accessing campus
  • Ensure they have footwear and clothing suitable for the conditions

Any concerns or additional information is available by contacting the Grounds Team (01392 725531) between 9am and 4pm or calling Estate Patrol on 01392 723999 at other times.

These routes should be gritted by 8.15am during frosty and snowy conditions.
