STUDENT CODE OF CONDUCT
The management of Unirooms expects students to behave in a manner which ensures that
the accommodation can meet its legal, statutory and contractual obligations, that all students and staff are treated with dignity and respect, that all Unirooms property and facilities are used appropriately and that students uphold the good name of Unirooms in their actions both on and off-campus.
Rights and obligations of staff, students and others:
Every student and staff member has the right to be treated with dignity and respect.
- Students are expected to acknowledge the authority of the staff of Unirooms, both
management and support staff, in the performance of their duties.
- Every student is required to behave in a manner which does not disrupt or disturb fellow residents.
- The maintenance of the good name of Unirooms is in the interests of all the residents, community and, as the reputation of Unirooms depends largely on those who represent it, it is the duty of its residents at all times to behave, both inside and outside of the accommodation, in a way which does not bring discredit to the name of Unirooms. For the avoidance of doubt, this Code of Conduct applies to both online and offline behaviour.
- This Student Code of Conduct does not purport to contain all of the regulations and policies of Unirooms accommodation. Where such regulations and policies are made or amended, information as to their content will be publicised and made available to the residents by posting them on the Unirooms website. It is incumbent on residents to ensure they are familiar with the regulations and policies applicable at any given time.
- The observance of the Code, so far as it applies to the individual resident, is their own personal responsibility and, so far as it applies to recognised groups, is the responsibility of their duly appointed officers. Claims of ignorance of the provisions of this Code or other Unirooms policies shall not be entertained as part of any investigatory or disciplinary process.
- Breach of any of the regulations of the accommodation will be dealt with either under the appropriate approved procedure or the Disciplinary Procedure as laid out in Sections below. Every student is required to cooperate with the disciplinary procedures outlined below. Failure to cooperate or failure to pay a fine or comply with a disciplinary sanction imposed for a breach of discipline (subject to any right of appeal applicable) is considered a breach of this Code of Conduct.
- Our disciplinary steps are as outlined below:
- Official verbal warning
- First written warning (Copied to Parent/Guardian)
- Final written warning (Copied to Parent/Guardian)
- Asked to leave and Licence agreement terminated.
Unirooms reserves the right to revoke and terminate a Licence Agreement on notice to the student occupier in the event of the following:
