CCTV cameras in Student Halls

We're waiting for Eilidh to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear University of Edinburgh,

I am writing to you under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 to request the following information from your Student Housing & Security.

The amount of CCTV surveillance cameras total in your student housing - Pollock Halls, Potterrow, Reigo Street, Kincaids Court, College Wynd and Warrdender Park Road .

Please provide the information in the form clearly stating how many inside each location.

If it is not possible to provide the information requested due to the information exceeding the cost of compliance limits identified in Section 12, please provide advice and assistance, under the Section 16 obligations of the Act, as to how I can refine my request.

Yours faithfully,

E. Hutchison

While we will make all efforts to respond to requests promptly, please be
aware that in some cases unfortunately we will not be able to respond
within statutory timescales. The [1]Scottish Information Commissioner’s
Office and the [2]Information Commissioner’s Office have both issued
statements about requests during the Covid-19 pandemic which you may find
helpful.

the body of your email your request will not be valid.  To ensure your
request is valid and that the University is obliged to answer it, you must
provide your real name.  If you are making the request on behalf of
someone else you must provide their real name.  The Office of
the [3]Scottish Information Commissioner's guidance on this point explains
that if you do not provide your real name or the name of the person on
whose behalf you are making the request, you will lose your right to
appeal to the Commissioner should you be unhappy with the handling of your
request. The guidance also explains what constitutes a real name for the
purposes of making a request valid. Please refer to the guidance for
further details.

Dear Eilidh Hutchison

Thank you for your email of 10 November requesting information.

The [1]Scottish Information Commissioner's Office has issued a statement
about requests during the Covid-19 pandemic which you may find helpful.

If you are unhappy with the way the University has handled your request,
you do have the right to ask the University to conduct an internal review
of the reasons for the delay. The [2]Scottish Information Commissioner's
guidance about this during the Covid-19 pandemic is available on their
website. If you wish to submit a review request you should write to the
Records Management Section (using this email address), describing the
original request, explaining your grounds for dissatisfaction, and
including an address for correspondence. When the review process is
complete, if you are still dissatisfied, you may use the Scottish
Information Commissioner's guidance on making an appeal to make an appeal
to the Commissioner.
