UUK Code of Practice

Accommodation Code

 

Where you live is a big part of being at university or college, which is why Liverpool Hope University is one of a number of universities and further education colleges that is signed up to The Student Accommodation Code.

The Code protects our students’ rights to safe, good quality accommodation, to make sure our students get the best out of their time living in our residences. It outlines everything students can expect from our accommodation as well as their responsibilities as tenants.   

The Code has already raised standards of accommodation at Liverpool Hope University and underpins our ongoing dedication to our students. We are fully committed to providing a safe, comfortable living environment which will help support our students in leading a successful and enjoyable student life.  

Formal accreditation to the Code is a voluntary undertaking for those managers who commit to the Code. A breach is not an offence of the Housing Act, nor is it a civil liability, but the Code may be used as evidence of good practice (or not) by a court or tribunal.  

Liverpool Hope must demonstrate compliance with the Code and our internal auditors monitor this on a regular basis.
