Is it fair to fine university students?

Josephine Franks Reporter from East & Bays Courier

Hi neighbours. Auckland University students have been charged more than $400,000 in late fees and fines for partying, smoking and cheating over the last five years.

One student says fines aren't fair given the "huge amount" they already pay in fees. What do you think?

Have you been fined while at university?
