Policy Statement

Website Address for this Policy





Students are expected to comply with directives from the professional housing administrators and the residence hall student staff. Failure of students to cooperate with any member of the Residence Life staff when acting as representatives of the university will result in disciplinary action ranging from censure to eviction from housing. All residents are expected to comply with administrative requests and sanctions.


Should a resident fail to meet the stated expectation, the resident should expect to be held accountable for non-compliance with departmental standards. This can include additional sanctions and loss of privileges as deemed appropriate. In addition, failure to evacuate a hall when an alarm sounds and failure to comply with staff directives constitutes grounds for disciplinary action, which may include eviction from the residence halls.



The Director of Student Housing Administration is responsible for the review of this policy every four years (or whenever circumstances require immediate review).
