In accordance with the state law and Southern Miss policy, the illegal possession, use, sale or attempt to obtain any drug (including marijuana and prescription drugs) or drug-related paraphernalia is prohibited in university residence halls. Failure to comply with this guideline creates grounds for eviction from the residence hall community and/or expulsion from the university. Campus violations resulting in interim suspension will result in an immediate loss of housing privileges. Items should be removed from room within 10 calendar days of the suspension.
The Director of Student Housing Administration is responsible for the review of this policy every four years (or whenever circumstances require immediate review).
