The University operates a Drugs Policy (PDF). Current advice is to refer to Student Conduct Regulations and Procedures (PDF). Brookes recognises that the University is a microcosm of society as a whole and acknowledges that the use and influences of legal and illegal drugs is not seen as aberrant or deviant behaviour by many young people.
However, the University does not condone or encourage the possession or use of illegal drugs. In addition, it is committed to enhancing the health, welfare and safety of all students, and to reducing the risks associated with all drug use, alcohol abuse and tobacco use. It will seek to achieve these goals in respect of illegal drugs through educational, counselling and disciplinary approaches.
A very different approach will be taken towards students who are suspected of manufacturing, dealing or supplying drugs within the University: the matter will be reported to the police immediately.
The Medical Centre promotes drugs awareness and alcohol awareness at Brookes and has useful external links on their information pages
