Managed Exclusion  



What is a Managed Exclusion Order and why have I been given this?

Managed Exclusion Orders (MEO) are not a punishment but the University will often issue one if you are under investigation for an alleged disciplinary offence e.g. in University Accommodation.

An MEO will restrict your access to certain areas/buildings on the University campus, or University Accommodation.​


What do I need to do first?

It is important that you read and understand the terms of your MEO

These can be found under the 'Student disciplinary proceedings' heading on the web-site of the Office of Student Complaints, Appeals and Regulations (OSCAR) -


What next?

You can appeal against an MEO

If you wish to appeal your MEO read the possible grounds carefully and decide which grounds of appeal you want to use.

Prepare a short statement explaining your grounds and gather together any relevant documents e.g. emails, doctors letters.

Submit your appeal to the Provost, via OSCAR (email:
