Brookes University Issues
In This Section
Student Conduct: Brookes and the Students’ Union have taken an important initiative in consulting students about the penalties for bad behaviour. As a result they have decided to do more to make students aware of the penalties for misconduct. The Students’ Union states in a leaflet Our Future. Our Reputation that “The poor conduct of a handful of students is threatening to undermine Oxford Brookes’ excellent reputation. Safeguarding that reputation ensures that your Brookes degree is a valuable one, both now and in the future.”
Should you have any concerns about student behaviour please contact Benedict van der Linde, Community Liaison Officer, or Andrea Siret, Community Liaison Manager, at Brookes on 01865 484428 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have concerns about residents of Sinnet Court contact the manager, Amanda Green, on 01865 202377, or email at amanda.green@A2dominion.co.uk. A 24 hour duty warden on can be reached on 077860962015.
Brookes meetings with Representatives of the Residents’ Associations: Brookes holds these meetings three times a year. If you wish to raise an issue please contact the DRARA rep. Ivon Asquith (email@example.com).
Student Community Wardens: the Brookes student community wardens started work in late November 2011. Three of them work in the DRARA area. Brookes have doubled the number of student wardens from six to twelve so that they can cover parts of East Oxford between the Cowley and Iffley roads, as well as the DRARA and Gipsy Lane areas. If you wish to raise an issue for the student community wardens please contact Andrea Siret (address above), or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Oxford University also started a scheme for student community wardens in April 2012. Three of them operate in East Oxford near the Plain, but not in the DRARA area. They work in liaison with the Brookes wardens.
Meetings between DRARA and student leaders : useful meetings are now taking place twice a year between representatives of DRARA and Brookes and Oxford University student leaders, including David Whittingham, the general manager of Brookes University Students Union.
Building Works on Gipsy Lane Site: if you have any concerns about the building works on the Gipsy Lane site contact Ben Richardson of Brookes on 10865 483538.
Student Numbers: as reported in the local press, Oxford City Council is investigating the number of students from both Brookes and Oxford Universities who are living in privately rented accommodation. The number permitted in the Local Plan is 3,000 students for each university, but there is strong evidence to suggest that the real number is much higher than this. See Student Accommodation, HMOs and Planning
Brookes Facilities: residents are welcome to use a number of Brookes facilities, including the libraries, buses, sports facilities and gym, restaurant, osteopathy clinic, dentist, and some of their academic courses. Brookes issue a leaflet, Information for Residents, which is delivered to residents. A copy can be obtained from email@example.com or tel: 484848. See Brookes’ websites section.
