Being a good neighbour

The University has a major physical presence in Hatfield and with it the potential to make an impact, for better or worse, on the town’s environment. We take this responsibility very seriously and expect you, as a member of the University community, to share it. When you are out and about, we expect you to be a responsible citizen. Students are expected to behave responsibly and respectfully towards our neighbours and the local community and do nothing that might damage the University’s reputation.

Living in halls

We hope that you will be happy in your new accommodation. Please remember the key to enjoyable communal living is to show consideration to those living around you. In order to ensure safe and harmonious communal living, residents are expected, as a matter of course, to show courtesy and respect to those with whom they are sharing facilities, their neighbours and all University staff and visitors.

To make sure everyone knows what is expected, the University has a code of conduct for residents.

Please also take time to read the living on campus guides, (for both College Lane and de Havilland), and your license agreement.

Living in the local community

As students living in private accommodation you are part of the local community and therefore should respect those around you. Introduce yourself to your neighbours and try to develop an amicable relationship with them. Being considerate of your neighbours will make your and their experience of living in the same community more enjoyable.
