Residence Hall Policies

Students are considered adults and University-student relations are founded on this principle. All residence hall students are governed by the University Student Conduct Code. The regulations and the judicial process by which a case is heard and settled are described in the code itself. The regulations which follow pertain specifically to residence hall living, whenever you are on the grounds or within the residence hall system. If you violate any of these regulations, your case will be handled by the University, either through an administrative process or through a student judicial board.

Any student offense not covered by residence hall regulations which would endanger the safety or well-being of other residents or the residence hall system (e.g., tampering with mechanical or fire alarm/safety systems, disorderly conduct, weapons) could result in your interim suspension from the residence hall or relocation to another residence hall.

Specific regulations that pertain to residence hall living in particular, and that allow for local adjudication through administrative processes or student judicial board are outlined below.
