alcohol and drugs policy

Alcohol and Drugs Policy

The University of Kent is committed to safeguarding the health, safety and welfare of its students, and accepts its responsibility by raising awareness of the risks of alcohol and drug misuse. We respect the privacy of students, but will be concerned if a student’s behaviour impairs his/her conduct, safety or academic performance and/or adversely affects other students, staff, campus life or the wider community.

The University of Kent policies and penalties associated with drug and alcohol related offences are outlined in the following documents:

1. University Policy Statement Concerning Alcohol (pdf)

2. University Policy Statement Concerning Drugs (pdf)

These are a part of the general regulations.

If you or any of your friends have any concerns about these issues, you can access support via Student Support and Wellbeing and the Masters’ Offices, more information can be found here:
