Our staff is committed to helping you create an environment that is safe and comfortable, and also provides opportunites for your personal growth. One way we foster this is by creating a mutually agreed-upon list of expectations called community standards. Community standards can help ensure that everyone's campus living experience is fun, at times challenging, but ultimately rewarding.
All students are required to abide by the rules of the University including those outlined in the Housing and Meal Plan Contract Terms & Conditions and the Code of Student Rights and Responsibilities. Student conduct that violates these rules or is otherwise detrimental to the welfare of the residence hall environment will be addressed, and can include suspension or permanent prohibition from living on campus.
