Being part of the Queen Mary community: our shared values

Queen Mary is a community in which all our members – student and staff – are treated with dignity and respect. We are all responsible for keeping our learning and social spaces free from prejudice, discrimination, harassment and bullying.


All members of our community are expected to work together to uphold our commitment to creating an environment where staff and students are treated with dignity and respect.

Student behaviour at Queen Mary is governed by the Code of Student Discipline. Our Student Behaviour and Discipline guide [pdf] sets out examples of the unacceptable behaviours covered by the Code, and examples of the penalties that may be applied if a breach is found to have occurred.

The consequences of student misconduct can be very serious, and in extreme cases can result in suspension or even expulsion from the University. Our expectations of how students behave and treat each other apply equally to online and face to face learning environments, so it’s important to understand what is expected of you and what kinds of behaviour are unacceptable.

Over the coming weeks, we’ll share tips for making the most of online education, managing your digital footprint and supporting others in making Queen Mary a safe and inclusive community.
