Student Community


Standards of behaviour

The University of Nottingham and the Students' Union have clear expectations around the standards of behaviour we expect from our students. Together we represent a diverse range of backgrounds and identities, and it's important that we know how to interact with each other and how to treat each other with respect. As a result we have plain policies around dignity, and a Code of Discipline to enforce this.

At the University of Nottingham you’re part of a 45,000-strong community of students from over 150 countries.Our diverse global community is one of our greatest strengths and includes people from a huge range of backgrounds, identities and belief systems. This is what makes us such a vibrant and pioneering community.

It’s important that we all understand how to interact with each other to make everyone’s time here at Nottingham as positive as possible. We want you to feel at home and we expect every member of our community to be treated – and to treat others – with respect. We’re committed to providing a safe and friendly environment for everyone.

The University and the Students’ Union have clear policies around dignity, respect and discriminatory harassment. Bullying, threatening or offensive behaviour are all examples of misconduct in our Student Charter, and will lead to disciplinary action. This type of conduct is not welcome here.   

How to report an issue

The University of Nottingham is committed to ensuring we do everything we can to provide a safe and supportive environment for all of our students. If you have been subject to any disrespectful harassment, abuse, or assault, please report this here. We can support you and make sure that the problem is dealt with.

From your report, we will make an assessment as to how we can best support you. All reports will be handled in confidence and we will make sure we have your permission before sharing any personal information with appropriate support services.
