Oxford chiefs said that the policy had been developed over many months and consultation across the institution.
It comes after calls from It Happens Here, an Oxford University Student Union group which campaigns against sexual violence, for a ban on “inappropriate relationships”.
The group said in 2021 that relationships between staff and students “raise issues relating to inequalities of power in a relationship, or perceived favouritism, or the undermining of trust in the academic process”.
