We are proud of the way in which Oxford Brookes students have responded to the challenges brought about by the pandemic. It is important that we continue to look after each other and the local community.
In 2020 we introduced a set of Keeping each other safe principles, which explained the University’s expectations on student behaviour on campus, in student accommodation and in the wider community.
The Brookes Behaviour Policy sets out in more detail the University's expectations for the behaviour of staff and students, and provides links to useful resources to support you.
The University takes issues of student behaviour seriously and there are processes in place for addressing poor student behaviour. How the University will deal with breaches of conduct is detailed in the Student Conduct Procedures, to which all students agree to adhere as part of their enrolment. The University will consider any reports of non-compliance and if it is deemed that any misconduct has occurred, penalties can be issued. These include fines, which increase with each repeated breach, unpaid community service and/or exclusion from facilities and services provided by the University.
The University may take action under its Student Conduct Procedures if it receives substantiated information about student misconduct from members of the public, local residents, the local authority, the media, the police or others. The University's action and any outcome, including any penalty imposed, will be separate from and in addition to any action or outcome applied by the police or local authority or others.
