Statutes, Ordinances and Regulations

Our Statutes, Ordinances and Regulation set out the rules, conduct and powers of the University. You can find all of the documentation relating to each below.

The University has been conducting a governance review and, as a result, will be implementing changes to its governance arrangements over the coming months, with some changes taking effect from 15 July 2020. The Ordinances and Regulations are in the process of being amended to reflect the various changes. In the meantime, please note the following which apply to the Ordinances and Regulations on the website: where reference is made to the Nominations Committee, this is now the Nominations and Governance Committee; where reference is made to the Director of Compliance and Secretary to the Board, this is now the University Secretary (other than Ordinance 27, where this is now the Director of Strategic Planning and Performance). Should you have any questions about particular Ordinances or Regulations, please email: secretariat@london.ac.uk.
