Students’ Union Building Temporarily Evacuated Due to Fire


The students’ union main building on Highfield Campus (Building 42) had to be temporarily evacuated earlier this afternoon due to a fire.

As shown in the picture in VP Sports and Acting Union President Steve Gore’s tweet below, Hampshire Fire and Rescue were called out:

The incident was caused by a fan blowing out and spreading smoke across Concourse, the area around reception and The Bridge. The issue has now been resolved and Building 42 is open as usual.
