Accommodation - University of Leeds

Behaviour, Rules & Regulations

Respect for others

Living with people in university accommodation brings with it a responsibility to treat others as you would like to be treated yourself. Be conscious of your flatmates and neighbours whilst you are socialising and taking part in recreational activities within your residence and please try to return to your rooms as quietly as possible if coming home late at night.

Be considerate towards your fellow students, staff and neighbours by taking note of the following points:

  • Keep noise at a level that does not interfere with the study, sleep and comfort of other residents, staff and neighbours. This includes TVs, stereos, CD players, musical instruments, singing, shouting, etc. Reduce the level of noise immediately if asked to do so
  • Behave with respect and consideration towards other residents, staff and your neighbours. This includes not using foul and abusive language, not using other residents' possessions without permission and respecting the privacy of others
  • We do not tolerate any form of bullying or harassment, whether it be based on someone's faith, gender, sexuality, race, disability or other
  • Keep your room/flat in a clean state and carry out your share of cleaning in the communal areas, e.g. the kitchen. If the communal areas are not kept clean the warden or residence manager may issue a warning and request that the areas be cleaned properly. If you have repeated warnings, you might end up having to pay for a contract cleaning company to come in
  • Ask permission from the warden (or in some residences, the subwarden) if you want to hold a party
  • You must not smoke in any part of your residence, except within your own bedroom and then only if you have received an email stating that it is designated as a smoking room. If you are in a designated smoking room you may smoke tobacco in your room with the door closed, but nowhere else. You must ensure that University staff and any contractors visiting your room (e.g. during inspections, cleaning and any maintenance work) are not exposed to smoke when they enter, and open your window if requested to do so
