Fire Safety at Host: How to stay safe in your new home

The new academic year has begun, you’re settling into your new home and you’re excited about the year ahead. So, with so much going on, we understand that fire safety probably isn’t top of your checklist right now.

However, there’s nothing more important than your safety and at Host, we take fire safety very seriously. Fires can develop very quickly – it usually takes 3 to 6 minutes to have a fully developed fire. So, it’s important for you to take a moment to understand fire safety at your student accommodation.

The short video below highlights how you can help prevent a fire and what you should do if there is a fire at your accommodation.

If you’ve watched the video above and have any questions or concerns about staying safe at your Host student accommodation, please contact your on-site management team; they’ll be happy to help.

#HostEnvironmentalPledge.
Getting serious about the environment we live in.

To become more ‘environmentally friendly’, Host is launching the #HostEnvironmentalPledge campaign to encourage responsible behaviour and drive sustainability across our sites throughout the UK and Ireland.

It’s a simple campaign! If we can reduce our overall utilities (electric, water and gas) consumption by 1% then we will donate £10,000, 2% reduction means £20,000, 3% is £30,000 and so on, to 3 charities; BulliesOut, Planet Patrol and World Land Trust.
