They help with a multitude of issues including housing, legal questions and community relations to promote and maintain positive relationships in the Brighton area. The team also includes our own warranted police officer, Roisin Vafaee, who is dedicated to crime prevention as well as assisting any student who has been the victim of crime.

Click here to read the advice which the university gives students on "being a good neighbour". This includes the following:

Neighbours can complain about your behaviour to:

  • your landlord or letting agent – they can enforce clauses in the tenancy agreement and take action
  • environmental health at Brighton & Hove City Council – it can serve warnings about noise and noise abatement notices, which are legally enforceable (and if broken you could be taken to court)
  • us – as a student you have signed up to the Student Charter, agreeing to behave considerately in the community. If your behaviour breaks this then we have a complaints process in place, which includes disciplinary action.

Bidding for Funding for Neighbourhood Watch

Possible bid for Safer in Sussex Community Fund awards

For this, we would need to offer a project to reduce crime &/or improve community safety in Round Hill. This might be something akin to a Neighbourhood Watch.

The advantage of Neighbourhood Watch is that groups around the UK have applied themselves to finding solutions for many concerns which we share in Round Hill. See table (below)

Antisocial behaviour   Elder abuse
Bicycle theft   Hate crime & incidents
Burglary   Password protection
Car crime   Rural crime
Child sexual exploitation   Scams
Dog theft   Serious violence
Domestic abuse   Terrorism

Also, it offers a structure which the police are used to working with. See:
