UoB fines 107 students for holding or attending parties

Updated: Nov 28, 2020

The University of Bristol has fined 107 students since October for breaking coronavirus rules, according to BristolLive, the online edition of the Bristol Post.

In an article dated 6 November 2020, senior reporter Estel Farell-Roig says 40 fines were issued in the past week, bringing the total to 107.

"Of these, 101 fines have been for attending a party or gathering at £100 and six at £250 for arranging a party or gathering," the article says.

Fines have been issued to students in university halls as well as those in rented accommodation.

Police in Nottingham have in several instances issued fines of £10,000 each to organisers of student parties. In one case, the penalty was levied on each of four organisers of an event and they were suspended by their university, the BBC News website recently reported.

It quoted the Chief Constable of Nottinghamshire as saying the city's two universities should expel rule-breaking students "as a deterrent".
