Rules of conduct in graduation sessions

On the occasion of graduations, we remind recent graduates and their families to adhere to specific rules of conduct that guarantee the dignity and decorum of the university institution and prevent damage to persons and property, which are contained in the Rules of Conduct for candidates and their families during graduation sessions.
In particular:

  • it is absolutely forbidden to affix printed matter or other material both inside and outside the buildings;
  • the classrooms in, in which the graduation sessions are held, must be vacated immediately after the candidate has been proclaimed;
  • the University buildings are not places where graduation parties may be organised.

This applies to both internal and external areas. It follows that it is forbidden to set up refreshment areas with the serving of food or beverages; noise, shouting and verbal outbursts that disrupt lessons are prohibited.
Finally, it is worth recalling the provisions of 'Article 41 - Code of Conduct' of the current University Regulations:

  1. University staff and students must, also through their behaviour, promote the smooth running of university business and civilised coexistence;
  2. Students who, by their behaviour, obstruct the regular and proper conduct of academic activities and cause damage to the University's assets, without prejudice to the application of the criminal and administrative sanctions provided for by the legislation in force, may be subject to disciplinary proceedings, in compliance with the principle of adversarial proceedings.

The sanctionable conduct, the applicable procedure and sanctions, as well as their enforceability, are laid down in specific regulations to which reference is made.
For university staff, please refer to the provisions of the code of ethics and the legal and collective bargaining rules governing disciplinary matters.
