A message from the Principal
With a new term approaching, we are excited to welcome a new cohort of students to our university, and to our community. As part of this community we are keen that our students settle in to their halls and homes safely and considerately, and enjoy their new neighbourhoods while also becoming good neighbours.
Our students bring many positives to the local area, from award-winning volunteering initiatives, creative community events and investment in local businesses and enterprises. However, we are very aware that a small number of students do not adjust well to living in the community and can cause distress to neighbours through anti-social behaviour.
As such, we are taking a number of steps before the start of term to ensure that measures and messages are in place to communicate to students the importance of being considerate neighbours. We are also taking the opportunity to write to you so that we can share some important updates relating to the start of term.
I’d like to thank you for your continued support of the university. I am delighted to hear so much positive feedback from our community, whether from those who benefit from student projects, those who attend events on campus or those who simply enjoy spending time on our beautiful campus.
I hope this relationship continues to grow throughout the new academic year as we look forward to welcoming students to Runnymede’s close community.
