70 per cent of campus is without heating today

Temperatures are expected as low as -1°C in York

A fault with the University’s central heating system has lead to more than two thirds of campus losing heat and hot water today.

Both Hes East and Hes West campuses have been affected.

In an email sent to all students, David Duncan has suggested that work won’t be completed until “mid to late afternoon.”

The email goes on to say: “We have a limited supply of portable heaters – if you would like to make use of this, please contact the Facilities Helpdesk – 01904 325555 – [email protected].”

For any freshers, we can only hope you had a sleepover off campus last night for central heating and a hot shower.
