Disruption to water mains supply to campus buildings

Last updated on 23 April 2024

The water mains supply to several campus buildings will be switched off from 11:30pm to 6am, from Sunday 12 May to Tuesday 14 May.

The following buildings will be affected:

  • The Refectory (12th floor only)
  • University House (12th floor only)
  • Michael Sadler Building
  • Marjorie and Arnold Ziff Building
  • Great Hall
  • Clothworkers’ Building South
  • Edward Boyle Library

Further details

To limit disruption the isolation will commence at 11:30pm with the water systems turned back on by 6am the following day. The maintenance team will be on hand each morning to purge as much air as possible from the system within the buildings.

Whilst the isolation takes place we will improve resilience by installing a new valve to the network.

Reinstatement of the holes will take place within core working hours.

A map of the approximate area affected by the mains water isolation is below. The Great Hall side of the black line will only be affected from Monday 13 May to Tuesday 14 May.

Effects of this interruption upon building occupants

No incoming mains water supply to the building due to the supply being isolated. Potential for small amount of air within the system in the morning when the water is turned back on.
