​​UUK-GuildHE joint statement on fire safety

Further to the tragic events at Grenfell Tower on 14 June, our members are taking immediate steps to re-assess fire safety at all buildings, particularly residential accommodation. Student safety is always paramount, and the current checks build on the strong foundations set by our ongoing procedures and safeguards. Any risks are being dealt with. Universities have been asked to report on these issues to DfE / HEFCE by 5 July.
