Statement on Charles Stewart House protest

The University is aware of, and deeply regrets, the unfortunate incident that is currently being played on social media. The matter is now in the hands of the police.

We continue to support the right of students to peacefully and lawfully demonstrate and the University is using private security outside its buildings in Chambers Street in order to secure the safety of staff and students during the occupation.

We are constantly reviewing our security arrangements to make sure that they are appropriate to the circumstances in what is an evolving situation.
