How to report an issue in the community


The University of Nottingham takes a strong stance on anti-social behaviour (ASB) and may take action to address any concerns that arise as a result. In addition to this, our students agree to a strict Code of Discipline.

Neighbourhood helpline

We expect students to act in accordance with the University Code of Conduct during their time with us and to be ambassadors for our University. If you find an occasion where this isn't being observed, please contact the University via our helpline or Community Engagement department email. This 24-hour helpline offers students and local residents the opportunity to let the University know about any issues of concern. Please leave a message about anything from noisy neighbours to uncollected rubbish.

Please include as much detail as possible into your report:

  • Your name, address and contact number.
  • Address of incident.
  • Date and time of incident.
  • Whether you have reported to Nottingham City Council/Police - if so, please include the incident number.
  • Details of the incident/disturbance/issue.

Messages are dealt with promptly, but this is not an emergency helpline.
