Behaviour, Rules & Regulations

Drugs

  • The University has a legal responsibility to ensure that it does not allow its premises to be used for illegal drug activities. If you, or your guests, are involved in illegal drug activities you could be reported to the police. This also applies to anyone involved in such activities off University premises which impact on the University and its students or staff. As you would expect, we take a particularly serious view of anyone involved in the supply of illegal drugs (this includes giving them to your friends). And remember that (despite popular misconceptions), possession and use of cannabis is illegal
  • Any matter involving illegal drugs will lead to action under the General University Disciplinary Regulations and will usually be reported to the police. There is no maximum fine for these offences and penalties can include being thrown out of the University
  • If you are concerned about your own or other students' drug use, please think about talking to your personal tutor, the University Student Counselling Service, your warden or staff in the
    Student Advice Centre
    in the Union. You'll find more information about the University's policy on drugs, and a full list of support agencies, in the Taught Students' Handbook
  • You can also read our booklet on drugs and alcohol. It contains lots of helpful information
