A university has banned alcohol at one of its halls of residence after a party saw chairs through walls and doors ripped from hinges.
Victoria University of Wellington, in New Zealand, banned alcohol indefinitely from Joan Stevens Hall, after thousands of dollars worth of damage was done to the building, TVNZ reported.
Footage from the party shows students downing vodka and a variety of different alcoholic drinks all at once, before wreaking havoc inside the halls.
Shocking pictures of the damage show large parts of a wall missing, broken chairs, piles of broken glass and doors hanging off hinges.
There were reportedly 40 separate cases of property damage at the student residence in the past week.
One student has left the student residence altogether because of the incident.
She told TVNZ: ‘It was feral, really, really bad. My common room was covered in vomit, the toilets were broken or the doors were broke. It’s not a fun place to live. You don’t feel safe sometimes.’
Another student said: ‘There were chairs thrown through walls, broken glass, we’ve got three doors gone. Apparently the RA’s said we’ve done the most damage compared to any other year.’
If no one claims responsibility for the damage, the students will have to split the bill.
Victoria University’s Vice-Chancellor Professor Grant Guilford told the site: ‘When an individual or group of students breaks the rules, robust and clear disciplinary processes are in place.’
