Five ANU students have been expelled from living at John XXIII College, following allegations of sexual harassment.
In total, fourteen male students have been disciplined by the university, after they allegedly took photos of female students' clothed breasts, and rated them in a Facebook group message.
Two have been suspended from the college for two weeks, while another seven have been placed on behavioural probation.
ANU Deputy Vice-Chancellor Marnie Hughes-Warrington said these actions aren't acceptable.
"It is disappointing, but at the same time, it's consistent with the university viewing all acts of sexual assault or unwanted sexual attention as something we absolutely would take a firm stance on," she said.
"The university believes the punishments meted out were completely appropriate."
