Heating


The following sections provide information on heating schedules and setpoints for occupants guidance on thermal comfort levels.  It also details the operation of the Prefect heating control system which is used in some halls of residence.

Please note that in all circumstances, if your room is already up to temperature the heating will not come on. Additional heat will only be delivered if the room is colder than the set point.

Space heating is only on during the heating season, which is typically from the end of Sept to the end of April.

Occupants with a medical condition, illness or other impairment that are experiencing continuous difficulty with their thermal comfort, despite best efforts to keep warm, should contact Occupational Health for additional support and advice.

All of Oxford Brookes buildings have hot water enabled 24/7.
