Emergency Evacuation


Please note that we ask visitors who may have difficulty leaving a building in an emergency evacuation to notify Security staff, if in the Main building, or Reception staff if in one of the other buildings on arrival.

For visitors, staff or students who have a hearing impairment, Security can issue alert pagers and under-pillow pads (for residents) that vibrate if activated by a fire alarm. Please contact Security or Reception staff on arrival.

  The University’s Emergency Evacuation Procedure for People with Disabilities is available from the Security Office and the Main Reception.

If you find you are having difficulties in an emergency, please contact security staff on  0121 204 4803.

Students at Aston who require assistance with evacuation will have a Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan (PEEP) completed with them in conjunction with the Health and Safety Team and their School.
