DMS at the University of Sussex
“It’s much easier to operate on a day to day basis with very little required from student services and estates teams.”
University of Sussex
Nestled into the rolling hills of the South Downs, surrounded by the boundaries of the National Park, the Falmer Campus of the University of Sussex cuts an impressive figure. With 15,000 students a year, it is one of the top 20 universities in the UK.
Architect Sir Basil Spence drew inspiration from the surrounding countryside and many of the buildings have listed status. The campus has undergone much redevelopment over the last 20 years, including recent major refurbishment of the iconic Attenborough Centre for Creative Arts.
The University of Sussex is well known for its innovation and forward thinking, so DMS fit in well with this ethos. DMS is significantly more cost effective than pagers in regards to equipment and operational costs — individuals can use their own phones which is a real advantage. It’s also much easier to operate on a day-to-day basis with very little required from student services and the estates teams. Operating a campus-wide pager system had been a very involved process.

In the UK there is an estimate of between 1400-1800 school fires each year, with 75% of these thought to be caused on purpose. Read our blog for some tips on how to reduce the risk of arson in schools.
Fire doors help to prevent the spread of smoke and fire throughout a building, potentially saving lives. So, why do students wedge them open?
