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".
