The gardening service at all campuses is carried out under contract to a specification which is monitored and reviewed as necessary to meet changing needs.

The high standard of maintenance of outdoor areas is particularly important at our South Kensington campus, providing students and staff with areas to relax and enjoy time out from work.

Paint roller with flowers

Apart from minor areas of sweeping carried out by the in-house Support Team, the grounds sweeping at South Kensington is contracted out.

Soft Services manages the teams who keep the grounds across our campuses well tended.

Snow and Ice Policy

Soft Services manage the clearance of snow and ice to maintain access as far as possible across campuses during periods of extreme weather.

We have produced a Snow and Ice Policy detailing arrangements for snow and ice clearance at each campus, along with campus maps showing the scheduled priority areas.

Safety is of the utmost importance during periods of bad weather, and updates will be given on the situation at campuses through the Imperial College website so check before you travel.
