Information for local residents regarding alleged anti-social behaviour by students

As proud members of this community, we take the issue of student anti-social behavior very seriously. Along with our Students’ Union, we offer advice and support to students on both their rights and responsibilities as tenants in the local community.

We find that in most cases, once students have been made aware of complaints made against them, they do change their behaviour. Please be aware that whilst you may be very sure that your neighbours are students of Coventry University, data protection law prevents us from confirming or denying this to you. We also cannot let you know if or what action is taken against an individual or group of students.

If you wish to raise a concern about anti-social behaviour by Coventry University students, you can do so using the form at the bottom of this page.

Whilst never avoiding our own responsibilities, the majority of complaints should be directed to our partner agencies:
