Students at Cambridge University have been hit with more than £16,000 fines for theft, drunkenness, theft, drug taking and - bedwetting.
The fines, which were issued between 2011 and 2013, were revealed after a Freedom of Information request was submitted by student tabloid The Tab. The request also revealed that Magdalene College fined one of its students £400 for drug taking.
Other incidents included the stealing of silverware, the heisting of a college trolley and the theft of college candles. More serious instances involved serious damage to property and threatening behaviour at St Edmund's college.
Furthermore a student was subjected to hours of 'gardening duty' for stealing alcohol from a committee cupboard, whilst another was banned from Magdalene for a week for walking on a table.
Emmanuel College students managed to run up fines in excess of £4,000 - mostly on unpaid library fines and bills. This information comes just days after the Office for Fair Trading (OFT) issued a warning to universities that they could be breaking the law by stopping students from graduating or progressing to their next year of study because of library fines and other charges distinct from tuition fees.
