    hey guys

    Just last week there was a flat party here in our halls, quite a large crowd was in attendance. While the night started out well it ended in complete disaster. One guy who was visiting tried to attack a someone who lived in the flat, so a fight ensued between the visitor and his friend against the member of the flat and myself. We both kicked the two visitors out. Along the way someone set the firealarm off. Afterwards there were a few girls complaining they had been hit in the incident and in the morning it was also discovered a door handle had been ripped off a door at some stage.

    A meeting has now been called for all members of the block in question. As i was heavily involved in events, some people even blaming me for setting the fire alarm off, is it possible myself or others may be kicked out of halls? Bearing in mind most of us were extremely drunk, i dont even remember the incident.

    Youre help and advice is very much appreciated.

    Yes... I've heard of people being removed from Halls for less - you have broken several rules of Halls just by having the party and inviting outsiders in, so if they want to they can kick you out

    Being drunk isn't seen as an excuse for stuff. If you try using it as an excuse then they'll probably just tell you that you should have had less to drink.

    Even if they don't kick you out, which they probably will, you'll probably be on pretty much final warning before they do.

    I had a friend once that got drunk, and went a tad mental in halls - not only did they kick him out of halls, the uni fined him and told him he had to go to alcohol counselling or they'd kick him out of uni altogether

    I really can't stand it when people use "but I was drunk" as an excuse.

    Claim it was the other 2, and that you 2 were just trying to get them to leave, and had to use self defence when they attacked you, and offer to pay the fines for the handle/fire alarm

    I dont think you will be kicked out if you talk at the meeting well.

    Make it look like it was entirely unavoidable or something. They forced their way in or something against your will.

    This might work. Depends how many previous warnings you have had too.

    People that use 'I was drunk' or 'I must have had my drink spiked' as an excuse are idiots that need to grow a pair and admit to what they did. I'm living with one of those morons at the moment. Can't wait to move out and let him know what I really think of him.

    Congratulations.

    It depends on your uni I think.

    I know that when a friend of my housemate had a really loud block party, the people in the village called the police and it had t o be shut down.

    They were fined and had to make dinner for the people that had phoned the police

    I don't think you'll get kicked out. Expect a fair wedge of a fine though.

    Thats the kind of stupid stuff which leads to ever more draconian rules being placed on hall residents...

    If you can't control a party don't have one....plenty of people manage to have them ok.

    Also I think a good general rule of uni hall parties is don't invite strangers in, "visitors" wanting to crash a 1st year student party rarely have benign intentions, at best they want to have sex with a fresher, at worst they want to rob the joint

    Hate to break it to you but I hope you have some savings stored up, they're going to fine you and keep your damage deposit in all likelihood.

    This.

    Being inebriated isn't an excuse for anybody to cause what is essentially criminal damage and setting fire alarms off.Unless you caused a serious amount of damage I don't think you'll be evicted but I'd expect some serious fines.

    He didn't do anything too bad, was just really drunk in halls - but he did live with a couple of muslims from malaysia and they were really scared while he was drunk and locked themselves in their room - so they complained about him which is fair enough... I think the uni just wanted to make an example

    Noone plans for a party to go out of control... once people get it in their heads to cause drunken chaos there's only so much you can do!

    Keep it foolish.
