The Conduct Regulations

The Conduct Regulations are in place to protect the well-being of the students, staff, wider community and the reputation of the University.

As a Queen’s student, you have a responsibility to ensure that your behaviour does not have an adverse impact on the University, your neighbours, or your fellow students. Engaging in student misconduct may prevent you from obtaining your degree and could jeopardise your career.

Disciplinary Process

A Disciplinary Officer has the option to convene a hearing, or pass the matter to the Committee of Discipline.

If a student is found guilty of misconduct after the hearing, the Disciplinary Officer can issue a range of penalties including warnings and fines of up to £250. The Committee of Discipline can issue written warnings, fines of up to £500, suspensions and expulsions.
