Students - Welcome (or welcome back) to Canterbury!

  • Students - Welcome (or welcome back) to Canterbury!
    • Student reunion celebrations are part of the uni-experience: work hard; party harder.
    • Balance revelry with respect for neighbours consequently too tired to arise for work..
  • Are you aware of the current campaign to oust students from communities?:
    • Enjoy yourselves, but remember, when returning from a night out:
    • Avoid continuing parties outside – in the garden, street or en-route in residential areas.
    • Noise is normalised – when everyone joins in - until the police arrive!
    • After a few drinks, few are conscious of volume.
    • Be different – stand out for the right reasons, stand up for what is right!  Be a leader not a crowd follower!
    • Should neighbours ask you to be quiet, politely apologise respecting their need to sleep - without retaliation.
    • Some residents work shifts or simply wish to sit quietly in their gardens undisturbed.

  • Rubbish Disposal is also important - avoid furry friends sharing your home and non-furry neighbours sharing your details with the authorities:
    • Ensure your rubbish is collected on alternate weeks in:
      • Clear Recycles Sacks or
      • Black Lid Wheelie Bins (called Landfill).
    • Each house has a Rubbish Collection Calendar leaflet from the City Council showing
      • the day,
      • date and
      • type of collection.
  • Enjoy!
