Badock Hall asks all residents to recognise five fundamental Hall rules.
Badock Hall operates under the University Disciplinary Procedures. Resident students need to understand that infringements of the terms and conditions under which they have accepted their accommodation are not acceptable and will be dealt with accordingly. The final course of action, rarely adopted without a history of problems, will be an invitation to seek alternative accommodation away from Badock Hall.
The condition of a study bedroom is the absolute responsibility of the resident student. This includes the door and its framework. On arrival day everyone is asked to complete a full inventory, clearly declaring the condition of the room at the time of occupancy; this requires careful completion. Thereafter if damage is sustained to the room or its contents, this is the sole responsibility of the individual resident.
The Hall staff will maintain the communal areas of the Hall as well as bathrooms and pantries. However, student residents clean and tidy their own rooms.
Safety checks are made periodically and if a room is considered to be in an unacceptable state the occupant will be requested to remedy the situation at once. Failure to comply will incur a charge, to cover the cost of hiring in cleaning staff.
Health & Safety play a very prominent role in hall life. All residents are expected to be aware of the need for care in the way they conduct their everyday lives and everyone needs to recognise some of the fundamental Health & Safety requirements of living in such a large community.
It is expected that residents will respect their communal environment. All residents should be aware that ceiling fabric in particular, in common with some other residences, must never be disturbed or damaged. This could result in immediate and serious disruption due to the potential danger from asbestos contamination. If ceilings remain undisturbed there is no danger whatsoever.
