The Rosebery canteen is a multi-purpose space used for eating, studying and socialising. To ensure the space can cater for these diverse activities, residents must adhere to the following ‘ground rules’ when using the canteen.
1- Approval for ‘large’ gatherings
Gatherings involving a large number of residents (over 20) is deemed to be an ‘event’. In such cases, residents must obtain the warden’s permission, in writing, one week prior to the event taking place. Email the warden. For contact details visit: Who’s who at Rosebery Hall
2- Non-Rosebery students
Non-Rosebery students can only attend gatherings if they are signed-in by a resident. Each resident is permitted a maximum of two guests before 11pm, and one guest after 11pm.
You are responsible for the actions of your guest. Non-Rosebery students are not permitted to hold gatherings in the canteen without the written permission of the warden.
Noise must be kept to a reasonable level at all times. This means that the gathering should not disturb other residents such that they cannot study or sleep. Any gathering beyond 11pm must abide by the ‘silence hours’ rules.
4 - Cleaning-up
All residents involved in the gathering are responsible for cleaning the canteen space as soon as the gathering has ended. Cleaning-up means:
All bottles, cans, boxes, cups, crisp packets, etc are placed in the bins provided
All tables and chairs are cleaned with a cloth and spray and then returned to their original positions
Any spills on the Canteen floor are cleaned using the mop and bucket provided.
Rosebery will provide a supply of bins, rubbish bags, paper towels, spray bottles, mops and buckets in the canteen for residents to use. Please notify reception if any of these products need replenishing.
5 - Directions from subwardens and security staff
All residents must abide by directions given by security staff and subwardens, particularly in relation to lowering the noise level and cleaning up rubbish. If you feel you have been treated inappropriately or in an unfair manner, please make a complaint to the warden.
Students who do not follow these guidelines will face disciplinary action.
