House Rules

House Rules

The House Rules of the Faculty of Behavioural and Social Sciences elaborate on the University of Groningen Regulations as set out by the Board of the University (CvB). These rules focus on the buildings and premises that are used by the faculty. If necessary, the Faculty Board can change these rules as long as they continue to fit into the framework of the CvB regulations. The In-house Services of the faculty are responsible for the enforcement of the House Rules.

These house rules concern the buildings and premises of the Hortus Location and the Bloemstraat area. In connection with the Damsterplein, the rules and regulations of the renter and co-user of the Damsterborg are applicable, namely the Building Society Nijestee.

    If people do not follow the rules as established in the University House Rules and Disciplinary Measures (Art. 7.57h WHW) under ‘Regulations for the use of university buildings, grounds and other facilities,’ this may have the consequence that their access to the buildings and premises will be temporarily or permanently denied.
