We include a number of appliances in our accommodation on the Canterbury campus. You can find Housekeeping's instructions for using these items and the user manuals (which go into more detail) for each item to help you troubleshoot any issues you have.
If your appliance is faulty, then please report this using Home at Halls as soon as possible so a member of the Maintenance Team can come to either repair or replace the item. Do not throw away/replace a broken item before Maintenance has checked it.
Cooking appliances should not be used/stored in your bedroom for fire safety, a list of prohibited items and additional cooking and electrical safety advice can be found in the Accommodation Handbook. If prohibited items are found in your accommodation during inspections, Housekeeping will confiscate these and follow the procedures as outlined in the Handbook.

Radiators are included in all our accommodation on campus.
Lots of the radiators at the University are part of a remote computer network, but sometimes switches still need to be switched and handles still need to be turned for everything to work correctly.
The best way to check if you have a problem is to take a look at the self-help flowchart (PDF 26KB) which will tell you if you need to report a fault with your radiator.
All rooms either include an external desk lamp of lights inbuilt into the room's desk. Where an external lamp is provided you can read the manual below.
