Love your city, respect your neighbours

As you settle into the autumn term, we ask all students to reflect on the impact you have on the city.

Portsmouth is a vibrant city, with a rich naval history, a lively arts and music scene and many independent businesses, as well as the usual high street stores and bars. In just a few days, 24,000 of you have arrived in the city to live, study and socialise. As a member of the University community, we ask you to work with us to manage the huge presence and impact we have on the city.

Portsmouth already feels like home for many students. We ask you, as students, to look out for each other’s safety and welfare. When you are out and about in the city, we also expect you to be a good neighbour and responsible citizen.

VP Welfare and Community, Sophie Butler, said: “It’s great to see so many students enjoying their first couple of weeks here in Portsmouth. It’s important to remember to be considerate of your neighbours as we share this community and want to ensure everyone enjoys living in Portsmouth.”
