The University requires students to conduct themselves in a reasonable and proper manner at all times, both on and off campus. The University can take action where a breach of its regulations relating to student conduct has occurred.  

By accepting a place at the University of Brighton you are immediately regarded as undertaking to obey the University Regulations, such as those set out in the Code of Conduct for Students. It is your responsibility to familiarise yourself with these. 


Disciplinary Procedures for Students

During your time at the University, you may find yourself facing disciplinary proceedings. This page covers the basics of what to expect, but it is not exhaustive or definitive.  


General regulations on conduct

Misconduct is defined as behaviour which interferes with activities or functions of the University, or with those who work or study at the University, or as action which otherwise damages the University’s reputation in the community or more widely. 

Examples of this include but are not limited to: violent or indecent behaviour or language, fraud or deception in relation to the University, action likely to cause injury or security, bullying, possession of weapons and dropping litter. 
Different aspects of university life will have their own regulations, such as the library, halls of residence and parking. It is important you familiarise yourself with these. 

Disciplinary action may be taken in relation to misconduct which happens off-campus during activities such as field trips and placements, or other placement organisations, or on social media, or where it affects the reputation of the University in the community.
