Commitment to Equality and Diversity
The ISI Programme aims to provide an inclusive environment which promotes equality, values diversity and maintains a working, learning, and social environment in which the rights and dignity of all its staff and students are respected to assist them in reaching their full potential.
We expect that all ISI students conduct themselves in an appropriate manner towards other staff, students (prospective, current and former), and visitors. ISI students have a duty to treat colleagues with respect at all times, and not to discriminate against, victimise, or harass other students, members of staff, or visitors, whether junior or senior to them. ISI regards any breach of this policy by any employee(s) or student(s) or visitor(s) as a serious matter which may result in disciplinary action.
We are delighted to welcome students to ISI and ask you to abide by the following obligations to ensure that you and other students (as well as resident students, faculty members and guests) enjoy their time on site. You are therefore asked:
- To not cause any willful damage to the accommodation in either the bedrooms or public areas nor remove furnishings from any room.
- To allow members of the housekeeping team to enter the bedroom at least once a day for the purposes of cleaning the room.
- To not put anything harmful, or which is likely to cause blockage, in any pipes or drains, especially via sinks, toilets, showers, or baths in accommodation or common Toilet tissue should be flushed down the toilet and not placed in the bins. All sanitary materials or other such waste should be placed in the bins provided in the bathrooms.
- To not cause any nuisance, offence, disruption, harassment or disturbance to others (including other residents and local neighbours), through deliberate action, inaction, or negligence.

If you are found to be involved in any of these activities, you will be asked to leave the premises immediately and find alternative accommodation with no offer of refund for nights not stayed on site.
- To report to the College any damage or want of repair at the College or failure of the services as soon as reasonably practicable and in any event within 24 hours of becoming aware of it. Where damage or loss occurs for which you are responsible, students will be asked to pay to the College a fair and reasonable proportion of the cost of repairing the damage or reinstating the loss.
- To not add to or do anything which may cause damage to the electrical installation, security or safety equipment in the College or which may be a fire risk or in any other way put the health and safety or security of others or the College’s or other people’s property at risk.
