White Paper Examines Access Control For Student Accommodation

ASSA ABLOY : 14 September, 2012  (Technical Article)
Access Control specialist Assa Abloy examines the specific needs of university campus accommodation access and security measures in a new white paper
White Paper Examines Access Control For Student Accommodation

ASSA ABLOY Access Control has launched a new white paper to open a discussion on the issues surrounding security measures and access control in university accommodation today.

The white paper, entitled, ‘what degree of risk should students accept?’ looks at the new style and range of accommodation together with expectations of students and how this impacts on the safety and security considerations for university premises.

Taken into account in the white paper is the broad range of purpose built student accommodation and the new legal requirements and code of practice that specify the requirements for the provision of security in student housing.

Significantly, the white paper also notes that the changes in student accommodation arrangements are taking place against a backdrop of severe public sector financial constraints, as the UK remains deep in recession and notes the ‘real term’ cuts in expenditure implicated over the next three years.

Says ASSA ABLOY Access Control Managing Director Matt Thomas, author of the white paper: “In the last decade there has been an explosion in purpose built student accommodation operated by private companies, many offering all the modern facilities normally found in housing developments brought by young career professionals in major cities.  

“But in many cases, the security and access control systems have either not kept pace with the rest of technology or remain outdated, putting students at risk.  This has led to the establishment of national managements standards that incorporate requirements for the safety and security of students.

“In this white paper, we have attempted not only to raise awareness of these issues but also to demystify and stimulate a debate to establish access control solutions available, which can be adopted cost effectively whether for use in a traditional university owned halls of residence or in privately funded student accommodation.”
