Living In The Community
At Bournemouth Student Lettings, we want you to have an amazing time at University and have as much fun as possible. However, it is important to respect your fellow students as well as the community around you.
As a student at Bournemouth University, you must remember that you are representing the Uni at all times. This means that you need to set a good example off campus. Students who create a noise nuisance can expect a visit from the Police and or Environmental Health Officers.
Anti-social behaviour is acting in a way that causes or is likely to cause alarm or distress to other persons. Examples of anti-social behaviour include:
- Nuisance, rowdy or inconsiderate neighbours
- Vandalism, graffiti and fly-posting
- Street drinking
- Environmental damage including littering, dumping of rubbish and abandonment of cars
- Prostitution related activity
- Begging and vagrancy
- Fireworks misuse
- Inconsiderate or inappropriate use of vehicles
As you will be living with lots of other students, it is important that you show consideration when it comes to noise level. All noise should be kept to an acceptable level at all times. This includes leaving and returning to the property at night after you have been out clubbing. You may be living around families and they may have to be up early for work and also have children.
If you are choosing to have a party, you must let your neighbours know in advance. Keep the noise to a reasonable level and try to finish the party at a reasonable hour.
You must make sure that rubbish does not accumulate at the property and that rubbish is not lying around. This can make the neighbourhood look unpleasant and you may upset the neighbours and receive complaints (this is something you do not want). Remember to keep track of the bin collection dates and bring the bins back in when they have been emptied. If your bins have been split and are attracting vermin, do not leave it to someone else to clean up. You must be responsible and clean it up as soon as you can.

If you brought your car with you to University, make sure you park it considerately. A lot of properties do not come with parking spaces, so make sure you park your car in an appropriate place. By this we mean by not blocking in your neighbour or parking in or on their drive.
