Above all, the College expects every member to behave in a responsible manner.  The aim of these guidelines is make sure hostel residents can hold parties without causing problems for other hostel residents, neighbours or the College.

The guidelines

1. The host/s are responsible for ensuring that fire and safety regulations are fully complied with.

2. The host/s must not allow the maximum noise level at any time to exceed the figures laid down in the regulations of the County Council Fire and Environmental Health Offices.

3. The number of guests at any party is to be limited to 6 times the number of residents. However at Gwen Raverat House and Frank Young House the number of guests must not exceed 60 people.

4. It is in your own interests to be polite and considerate to neighbours.  At least one day's notice of a partybeing held  must be given to neighbours.  

5. You must be considerate towards any resident of the hostel who may have genuine reasons against holding a party (e.g. exams, illness).

6. Host/s are responsible for cleaning up after a party and for any intentional/unintentional damage to hostel property.  The costs of any extra cleaning or repairs to the hostel will be borne by the host/s.  In particularly bad cases the College may add an administration fee to the these costs.

7. Only residents of a hostel may host a party.
