Standards of behaviour

The University of Nottingham and the Students' Union have clear expectations around the standards of behaviour we expect from our students. Together we represent a diverse range of backgrounds and identities, and it's important that we know how to interact with each other and how to treat each other with respect. As a result we have plain policies around dignity and a code of discipline to enforce this.
