Part 4: Residential Living

Each student in the residence halls is expected to exercise self-discipline and to respect the rights of other students. Each resident must realize that in a community-living experience, certain rules should be observed by all in order to maintain a safe and educational environment.

Each residence hall has the ability to institute rules, according to parameters specifically related to the goals of the Office of Residential Living, provided that these rules do not conflict with the rules of the University and are approved by the Director of Residential Living.

Students who witness violations should report them to residence hall staff and/or UPD. Questions related to appropriate and inappropriate behavior should be addressed to the residence hall staff or the Student Handbook.
