Residence Regulations for Brunel University Residences 2014/15
On behalf of all the Accommodation and Residential Services teams, we would like to welcome you to Brunel University. The Rules and Regulations, which apply to all residents, are set out in this booklet. Inevitably, there are many do’s and don’ts, but we are sure you will understand that these are designed with your welfare and safety in mind. We would urge you to take the time to read this booklet before you make a commitment to coming to University Residences, and to retain it for future reference.
It is the University’s responsibility to cater for the needs of all its residential students, and to nurture an environment which is primarily conducive to study, but which also respects the legitimate desires of individuals to enjoy themselves, provided that in doing so the community does not suffer. That is why we need to make sure all students abide by the Regulations. There is no reason for any student to find themselves on the wrong side of these Regulations if they are prepared to accept that reasonable behaviour and consideration for others are the guiding principles for successful living in University Residences.
The residence to which you have been allocated will become your home for the upcoming academic session. We hope that you will take full advantage of the facilities that are available to make the most of your stay in residence.
ENJOY YOUR STAY AND GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR STUDIES!
