Students told to 'keep the noise down' as university warns of £100 fines
Share This Article:
Students who hold noisy parties risk being fined £100, the University of Bristol has warned.
The university say they will investigate any parties that receive complaints or disturb local neighbours and will fine all students living at the property £50 each if they find any wrongdoing.
Students may also be sent to an anti-social behaviour impact awareness session, which will include a further £50 cost.
200 students have so far been fined during 2018. All money made from fines are put back into a community fund which is then used for financing activities that allow students to mix with their neighbours, in a bid to encourage positive relations.
Ensuring students are considerate to their neighbours is important to the university, the institution provides welcome packs to all second and third years moving into rental properties, giving advice on community living.
The official university website community pages also provide helpful information and encourages students to introduce themselves to their neighbours and consider the amount of noise they make.
