Residential Living Handbook

RL Handbook

In a group living situation, it is important for you to understand your rights as a student and your responsibilities to others. The rights to study and sleep are considered primary in the residence hall environment. Your major purpose for enrollment is to pursue an education. Excessive noise and distractions inhibit this goal. Therefore, when you choose to exercise a subordinate privilege, such as playing your stereo or entertaining guests, it is your responsibility to make sure that you and your guests are not inhibiting another person’s rights to sleep or study.

When you enroll as a student here at West Texas A&M University and you sign your housing agreement, you are agreeing to abide by the rules and regulations of WTAMU as outlined in the Student Handbook and Residential Living Handbook, which serve as an extension of your housing contract. As a student, you are responsible for becoming familiar with the contents of these documents.

The purpose of this handbook is to provide our residential students with crucial information regarding on-campus living.
