Loughborough University has warned it will have to close if students have house parties in breach of coronavirus restrictions.
There is currently a campus ban on parties in halls of residence to try to prevent the spread of the illness among students.
The university has also had teams on the streets beyond the campus, off Epinal Way, looking out for signs of social gatherings that break the Rule of Six.

University bosses have said they are pleased with the way students have been sticking to the rules so far, but warned the campus may close if they do start to happen.
Loughborough University chief operating officer Richard Taylor tweeted to say: “You can have parties or you can have the university open this term.
“You can’t have both.
“I’m impressed and heartened with your behaviour so far but the penalties for parties are significant.
“Don’t let us, your families and your fellow students down.”
Mr Taylor told LeicestershireLive: “Reports overnight suggest students acting really responsibly.
“There is only one house we’re looking at that was marginal from a social distancing perspective.
“I’m not complacent but I am very proud how the vast majority are going about things.”
