Anti Social Behaviour
Anti-social behaviour is any aggressive, intimidating or destructive activity that damages or destroys another person’s quality of life.
So, for example, if you are continuously playing loud music which is annoying and interfering with your neighbours peace and quiet then this may amount to anti-social behaviour. Similarly, if large numbers of people are continuously gathering outside or near your house and their behaviour is causing you alarm, distress, fear or intimidation then this behaviour may amount to anti-social behaviour. Damaging propertyis also considered anti-social behaviour.
There are consequences for your actions. If caught acting in such a childish manner you can face some serious actions.
- You could be brought before the University and face suspension or expulsion
- You can be evicted from your accommodation
- You can face a criminal conviction. This can derail your future career and travel plans
- You can face hefty fines
- You can have serious difficulties in getting a visa to other countries
If you feel threatened or bullied in your home then let your residence management, landlord or the Accommodation Office know about it.
