Gas leak in URS Building

Late on Wednesday 22 May we discovered a gas leak in the URS Building at Whiteknights. The building was closed immediately and the Library was kept open overnight to provide study space.

This morning, Thursday 23 May, we have been able to clear all gas from the URS Building and it has been re-opened.

When the leak was discovered, the gas supply underneath the URS Building was cut off as a safety measure. This means there is currently no hot water in URS and a number of other buildings.

We are working with external contractors to restore the gas supply as soon as possible but we have been advised that this may take several days. We will keep you updated once we have further information.
