ResLife complaints procedure

If you wish to raise a complaint regarding your student accommodation, you must follow this procedure.


Campus Services is committed to delivering a professional service to all its students and customers and will act to ensure an excellent level of service is maintained at all times.

All complaints are treated very seriously as we strive to deliver the best service possible.

To ensure they are managed correctly and fairly, we ask that you follow the correct procedure as and when there is an issue you wish to raise.

What to do if you have a complaint

Stage One: Minor Complaint

In the first instance bring your complaint to the attention of a member staff (e.g. accommodation staff in your accommodation at the accommodation centres), who will aim to resolve the complaint by informal discussion. Your complaint will be registered and reviewed by the ResLife Operations Team Leader of the area that your complaint relates to.

If your complaint cannot be resolved at Stage One, your complaint will be passed onto the ResLife Marketing & Communications Manager. You will receive either a written or verbal response within five working days.

If you wish to make a formal written complaint, please follow the steps in Stage Two.

Stage Two: Written Complaint

A written complaint can be emailed to or submitted in the form of a letter addressed to:

ResLife Marketing & Communications Manager, West Accommodation Centre, University of Bath, Claverton Down, Bath, BA2 7AY.

Our aim is to provide you with a written reply within five working days of receipt of a written complaint.

If your complaint is of a complex nature, which requires detailed investigation we will inform you what is happening every five working days until we can reply in full.

All written complaints are recorded.

If you are unhappy with the resolution offered, your complaint may be escalated to the ResLife Experience Manager within Stage Two.

Following the outcome of Stage Two, if you wish to pursue the matter further please follow the steps in Stage Three.

Stage Three

Write to the Head of ResLife at:

University of Bath, Claverton Down, Bath, BA2 7AY.

Your complaint will be responded to in five working days.

For complaints unable to be resolved within Campus Services and which relate to student accommodation and the UUK Code of Practice please refer to the University’s Complaints Procedure.
