Playing your Part
We have taken a number of steps to communicate to our students and our expectations of them both on and off campus. Our Playing your Part campaign communicates the role that students and staff need to play by following the government’s coronavirus guidelines and restrictions and respecting each other. As part of this campaign we are reminding everyone of the importance of Hands, Face and Space.
The university is encouraging all students living in the local community to follow its ‘Be a Good Neighbour’ guidelines. This booklet was delivered to each household in September 2020 and, in an accompanying digital communication, the university reminded students of their responsibility to follow the government’s guidelines and restrictions on Covid-19.
We have a specific Covid-19 Code of Conduct that reflects the current circumstances and aligns with our standard Student Conduct Regulations. Combined with coronavirus-specific guidelines and advice, these measures are sufficient for everyone to know how they need to play their part.
Fines and penalties
The majority of our students are playing their part by following the guidance and restrictions.
For students who are not taking the health and safety of our community seriously, and are not following the legal rules, we have introduced fines and penalties specific to the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. These sit alongside our existing Code of Conduct, which applies both on and off campus.
