Safety Information and Code of Conduct

Safety Information

  • In the event of an emergency, participants should adhere to the instructions given by university staff, student ambassadors, or by the University Security Services.
  • Participants must not bring weapons or drugs, including but not limited to alcohol, cigarettes, or e-cigarettes onto the premises.
  • We are not a campus university. Some of our events take place at various sites around the city of Oxford and attendees might be expected to navigate between sites, negotiating traffic and other hazards usually present in a city. We recoginse this could be a health and safety concern and welcome parents who wish to support a student for this reason.
