    You'll probably be given a quick lecture about the importance of smoke detectors or even a small fine depending on what it says in your contract.

    Why did you cover it in the first place? It puts you and others at risk...

    oh yeah it says something about getting evicted if you mess with smoke detectors, but i think that's a bit extreme

    Unless you're a repeat offender, I doubt it'll get that serious.

    Awesome. Your thread made made me laugh. look at your student handbook. have you been reported?

    You will probably just be fined and normally they have a list of prices. £25-£50 quick for being a moron and the covering. they might also fine you as well for smoking.

    If the hall burned down then they wouldnt discover the plastic bag.

    the handbook doesn't mention it and i haven't been reported just yet, i'm expecting it though.
    I'm not too concerned, i doubt the consequence will be severe.

    You should have mentioned you havent been reported in your OP.
    You seem relaxed about it all so just tell them to chill if you do get reported.
