Demonstrate safely and with respect

We respect everyone’s right to protest on campus – but it’s vital that such demonstrations take place in line with our values, policies and within the law.

Primary page content

We require that anyone taking part in demonstrations follows and understands this guidance:

Make your voice heard on the right side of the law

  • Don’t use words or images that incite racism or hatred
  • Don’t promote banned terror organisations or acts of terrorism

Consider the impact your actions have on others

  • Don’t cause harm or distress to others
  • Don’t disrupt people’s study or work – demonstrations should be kept outside our buildings
  • Don’t damage College property

How we enable appropriate demonstrations

We have a duty of care to all our students and staff to make sure they are safe and supported. To ensure this we may:

  • Video demonstrations to have a record of events
  • Request that demonstrations are brought to an end
  • Manage where demonstrations take place
  • Liaise with the relevant authorities if required
