We are proud of what you bring to #TeamLivUni whether that is in Liverpool or any of our other campuses or partner universities.
Here is some information about what it means to be a member of #TeamLivUni and how to make your contribution to our community.
Complete our ‘Good Liverpool Citizen’ online modules
All students are invited to complete our ‘Good Liverpool Citizen’ online module.
The module explores the range of activities and opportunities for you to get involved in if you’re interested in areas such as sustainability, community and development, as well as introducing the support network we provide at the University.
As a part of the module you are asked to complete a specialist sustainability module, ‘Sustainability in Action’. Providing an explanation of, and insight into how you can support the United Nation’s 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda. This module has been completely designed and developed by students, for students.
Your local community
You should, by now, have looked at and signed our Liverpool Community Pledge as part of your induction or return to campus. Whether you are staying in halls, or you have ventured out to live in our local community, you have a responsibility to help us to maintain positive relationships with our neighbours and the wider community.
It’s great living with friends but please remember that houses or flats with multiple occupants can easily cause disturbance to neighbours. Consider that you may have a family with young children nearby, an elderly couple or people trying to work from home. Noise disturbance or anti-social behaviour can lead to a great deal of stress for those around you, so please try to think of others.
- Keep music, the TV volume and any other noise at a reasonable level at all times. If you like loud music, use headphones. Professional sound systems are not suitable for use in a home.
- Be aware of your surroundings when walking through neighbourhoods at night. Loud voices can easily carry and cause disturbance to those around you.
- Keep your property clean and don’t dump rubbish. Make sure you know when your bin collection day is so you can do your bit to keep your neighbourhood clean and tidy.
Remember that as a student you need to adhere to our Policy on Student Conduct and Discipline. If you’re not familiar with the policy, make sure you take a look and read the document, as it outlines how we expect you to behave both on and off campus as a student at the University. It is important that you pay particular attention to Appendix I (PDF), which highlights what we consider to be non-academic misconduct.
If you experience problems within your local community, whether it be noise, Covid-19 breaches or other anti-social behaviour, you can report this by emailing us on email@example.com. You can also make use of the formal processes provided by Liverpool City Council. This process gives us the opportunity to work closely with our longstanding partners and ensure that all relevant incidents are investigated and dealt with appropriately.
Liverpool is a welcoming and vibrant city and you will enjoy getting out and exploring it, but make sure you do it safely and be mindful of the wider community you are a part of.
As part of #TeamLivUni we can work together with our neighbours to ensure Liverpool continues to be rated amongst the safest cities in the UK. You can find detailed advice and guidance on staying safe and protecting others on our Student Safety webpages.
Get involved in your community
A great way to connect with your new neighbourhood is to seek out volunteering opportunities. It will give you the chance to integrate into your new community, meet new people and gain some valuable work experience which, in some cases, can be added to your Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR) once you graduate. You can find opportunities via Careers and Employability, through Liverpool Guild of Students, or simply by connecting with the relevant organisations in your area.
