Student Behaviour & Conduct

You may be feeling vulnerable or stressed about a situation or incident and unsure where to go, or how to proceed. You might want to raise a complaint about student behaviour, or you may have had a complaint made against you.

Our Student Advocates are impartial, objective and independent. We are here to support all students.

What is ‘appropriate behaviour and conduct?’

The university outlines what it deems to be appropriate behaviour and conduct in Ordinance 21 and the University Behaviour Policy. These cover cases of (but are not limited to) unlawful discrimination, bullying, victimisation and sexual misconduct.

What is the process for an accusation of a breach of student conduct?

The process varies depending on the situation, so it is important to read both Ordinance 21 and the University Behaviour Policy so you can understand the process for your own situation. If you have any questions, we are here to help.

Book with a student advocate

TUU Student Advocates are not lawyers, but we help by:

  • listening,
  • providing free, independent, confidential advice,
  • explaining University rules and regulations,
  • stepping through processes,
  • assisting with letters,
  • attending meetings where needed, and
  • appeals.

You are not alone – we are here to help and we can also refer you to other support people if needed.

If you have any concerns or just want to ask a simple question, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

We are available for all students, so if you are at a satellite campus we can meet you there, or if you are a distance student get in touch to arrange something that suits you.
