Grounds maintenance

The grounds staff maintain the grounds around all College buildings in a tidy, aesthetic and practical manner.

Gardens, particularly those facing onto roads, are maintained to give some screening for occupants while in their rooms, while minimising opportunities for the concealment of intruders.

Principal pathways are maintained to provide a suitable surface for all users, including those with ambulatory problems, and the College follows an active programme to improve access to all areas.

While not all paths are fully illuminated, principal routes have suitable lighting to provide security to users.

Snow and ice clearance policies

Students should take particular care during snowy periods that their actions do not cause a hazard for others.

Creating ice slides on roadways or steps, or making and using snowballs containing gravel from the paths should be avoided.

Litter clearance

All College members are responsible for maintaining the cleanliness of the College buildings, and should ensure that their waste is disposed of correctly, including that of their guests.

External litter bins, which are regularly emptied by Housekeeping staff, are provided outside the Butterfield Building, the MCR and the Library.
