Living as a community

The University expects all members of the University to recognise their responsibilities. We have a statement of expected student behaviour. It is important to us at Warwick that you:

  • Behave in a way that respects the rights and dignity of others
  • Treat others fairly
  • Use each social interaction to display courtesy and good manners
  • Value differences in others and the contribution they make
  • Study within the University on a cooperative basis
  • Demonstrate commitment to upholding the University's policy on equality and diversity

Harassment

The University and the Students' Union regard all forms of harassment, including bullying, as unacceptable and are prepared to take disciplinary action against offenders. Both the University and the Students' Union are committed to creating a community that is free from harassment and discrimination. Harassment is unlawful. It can affect your living and working conditions, and your physical and mental health. The University has a comprehensive Dignity at Study and Work Policy, the full details of which can be found on the Diversity and Inclusion website.

The University's Dignity at Warwick policy for staff and students seeks to tackle harassment and bullying by emphasising positive behaviour and the responsibilities that we all have to challenge inappropriate behaviour when we see it.

These values are important to our community and you will be expected to adopt and uphold these values whilst you are a student here at Warwick.

For students

The University's Dignity at Warwick policy (see the link above) includes information on the rights and responsibilities of all members of the University community. It also sets out the new student complaints resolution pathway process to follow if you feel that you are being subjected to harassment or bullying. The new student complaints resolution pathway information can be found on the Feedback and Complaints website.
