A small number of students and their guests put the safety of themselves and others at risk by their anti-social behaviour. Offences fall broadly into two main categories, anti-social or inappropriate behaviour and malicious activation of the fire alarms or tampering with fire equipment.
Listed in the PDF are examples of the types of behaviour, which are considered completely unacceptable in residences and the fines or disciplinary action likely to be imposed.
Incidents will be referred to an ‘Authorised Officer’ who will determine if the issue can be dealt with by them or referred to the Disciplinary Board. The student will be given the opportunity to accept or deny the charge. If the student accepts the charge then the Authorised Officer will deal with the case following due process and a penalty may be imposed. The student can appeal against the penalty but not the charge if accepted. If the student denies the charge then it is referred to Registry for action under University Disciplinary Regulations. The student can also opt for the offence to be dealt with by the Disciplinary Board rather than the Authorised Officer.
