About us

Our Student Charter

The University of Southampton is committed to supporting students as they work towards fulfilling their academic and personal potential. Together as staff and students we form a community working to facilitate learning, within a culture based on mutual respect in which individual rights and responsibilities and diverse needs are promoted.

The charter is a reference point for students and staff to consider the nature of the rights and responsibilities of all those included within the University’s community. It does not constitute a legally binding contract, but gives an overview of how we work together to establish and maintain our unique learning and living culture. Our Student Charter has been jointly developed by the University and the University of Southampton Students’ Union (Union Southampton).
