Student Accommodation used as Hotel

Guest Tommy

Recommended Posts

Hi All, 

Just looking for a some advice with evacuation strategies. 

I am conducting an FRA on student accommodation designed to a stay put policy, the accommodation is being used as a hotel during summer months when students are away. 

I have ensured that additional measures are in place within the purpose built flats such as; 

- EEL  escape route corridors within flat clusters. 

- Directional Signage. 

- Fire Action Notices with floor plan on each sleeping room door.

My question is, can a hotel have a stay put policy?  assuming that compartmentation is suitable and the building has been engineered to allow for a stay put.

Bet you it ain’t a hotel! It is just student accommodation being let to the general public and I would say that is likely that the general public will have a much more responsible attitude than the erstwhile occupants. A hotel would require tourist board approval, planning and building control consent for change of use.
