All visitors to events hosted at Hughes Hall must abide by the details set out in our Hughes Hall policy documents. Event attendees must be courteous to staff, guests and hosts at all times. Being under the influence of alcohol, or otherwise intoxicated, is not an excuse for lack of courtesy, rudeness, harassment or victimisation of a member of staff, another attendee or guest. All attendees are expected to drink responsibly and are responsible for their own health and behaviour whilst attending Hughes Hall event.

Attendees of events taking place in any venue external to the college are also subject to any Code of Conduct, Terms and Conditions, or other policy operated by the venue in question.

The benefits and services provided to alumni and associates by Hughes Hall are provided on a discretionary basis. When making use of these services, alumni and their guests agree to abide by this Code of Conduct as well as any other stated terms and conditions, and any relevant laws and regulations.

Hughes Hall reserves the right to remove alumni benefits and services if it deems the relevant terms of this code have been breached.

An alumnus or alumna who is convicted of a criminal offence may have their access to the services provided by Hughes Hall removed either until such time as their conviction is spent, or permanently, at the sole discretion of the President of the College.
