Medicines and medical supplies
All medications kept on site must be prescribed by a medical practitioner
Please advise what medication and medical supplies including epi pens, feeding tubes, bandages
etc. will be stored at the Residence in your room.
The Residences team is not able to administer any medicines to students and it is the student’s
responsibility to ensure that all medicines are secured in their locked bedroom at all times.
If you require a sharps bin you must arrange this with your own doctor and they will advise you
on how to arrange delivery and collection as and when required.
If you will be using any other medical equipment such as feeding tubes, bandages or anything
that could be described as producing medical waste please consult your doctor as to how this
should be disposed of and what arrangements need to be in place to facilitate this ahead of your
arrival at residences.
If you have medical information that could affect your stay in Student Residences which has
not been covered in the above sections, please provide information on a separate sheet.
The date this form is received will determine whether requested equipment to meet your needs
will be available upon arrival at the Student Residences so please reply early. If you have an
acute disability that requires adaptations or equipment provision you may be asked to arrange
an Occupational Therapist assessment and provide supporting medical evidence.
