The Institution publishes regulations on student conduct, which all students are required to adhere to, giving due regard to their legal responsibilities as adults and to the good name and reputation of the Institution, in a manner consistent with the fulfilment of the Institution’s mission. These are available to enrolled students via Moodle.

Student Associations

Trinity Laban’s thriving Students’ Union is central to life within the Institution, and serves as an effective and trustworthy mediator between students and administration, as well as the instigation of social events. The Students’ Union aims to make the transition from home to college life as easy as possible, with Freshers’ Week providing the first opportunity to meet fellow students and make friends.

The Trinity Laban Student Union is a member of the Association of London Colleges of Music and the National Union of Students, and provides students with support and social activities.
