Nottingham City Council delivered letters to students in Lenton, warning them not to have loud, disruptive house parties now that exam season is over.
These warnings were in response to student parties held last year that caused distress and disruption throughout the neighbourhood.
The letter outlined harsher penalties that could be imposed upon students if they throw loud house parties. The punishments include civil injunctions and possible evictions.
Nottingham Trent University and the University of Nottingham both spoke out in support of this measure.
Nottingham Trent emphasised its support for the Nottingham City Council, a spokesperson said, “We want our students to be able to enjoy our vibrant city, but we also want to ensure they are responsible members of the community.”
Similarly, a spokesperson from the University of Nottingham said they were 'proud' of their students and 'their positive contributions.' However, the university are asking students to 'respect their neighbours and do not risk that reputation.'
