This guidance should be read in conjunction with the Conduct Regulations. Where there is any doubt, the Regulations take precedence over this guidance.
All students are expected to conduct themselves at all times in a manner which demonstrates respect for the University, its staff, fellow students and the wider community. At enrolment you gave an undertaking to do so (Regulations for Students 5.6).
As a student, you are expected to behave in a responsible manner on and off campus, and on social media and in other forms of communication, and to ensure that your actions do not have an adverse impact on the University’s environment, its reputation, your neighbours, the local community or those who work or study at the University.
You should treat fellow students, University staff, visitors and persons in the wider community with respect regardless of gender, religion, community background, nationality, race/ethnic origin, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, age or whether or not they care for dependants.
The University may receive allegations of misconduct from other students, University staff, members of the public (including local residents), the Belfast City Council Noise Team or the Police.
This guide has been split into advice for those students wishing to make an allegation of misconduct against another Queen's student and those students who have been accused of a disciplinary offence.
