Ulster University said it has robust disciplinary procedures in place to deal with any student who is the subject of any off-campus complaint.

"Off-campus complaints can relate to low level anti-social behaviour such as noise and social activity, and on occasions reports of disorderly behaviour," a spokesman added.

They also explained UU provides workshops and information sessions outlining the risks of engaging in anti-social behaviour.

Queen's University said its students are, at all times, expected to conduct themselves in a manner which "demonstrates respect for the university, its staff, fellow students and the wider community".

"The university has a comprehensive programme of work in place to educate and support students living as part of the local community, and we work in close partnership with our Students' Union, Ulster University, all other colleges in the city, PSNI, Belfast City Council and other key stakeholders to promote student safety and welfare," it said.
