Written and verbal phrases

The University has received an overwhelming number of complaints from staff and students about general conduct and language that is likely to go beyond lawful speech and may cause harm, associated with the encampment protest and counter-protest.

We understand that words and statements used in protest and counter-protest may be distressing to some in our community, and we take all complaints seriously.

Due to the volume of complaints as part of our proactive engagement with the encampment organisers as well as counter-protesters, the University has advised that language which goes beyond lawful freedom of speech and causes harm may become a student misconduct matter.
