Students and the community
All students, whether living in University or privately rented accommodation, are part of the local community.
The University takes pride in the value that our students bring to Bristol, in terms of voluntary activity, collaborative initiatives and enrichment of the diversity and culture that makes Bristol special. The University also recognises the challenge of integrating students with the wider population and has a range of measures in place to address this.
The University employs a Community Liaison Officer to lead on maintaining good community relations and proactive initiatives which integrate students with local residents. Part of this role is to communicate with residents' associations and neighbourhood forums to develop joint approaches to community cohesion.
Complaints about student behaviour
The University treats complaints about student misconduct in the community very seriously and there is a process in place to monitor reported problems.
The Bristol Student Community Partnership (BSCP) was established to promote student and community relations and cohesion. Read the partnership meeting minutes.
