Community Living Policy

Our residence halls are community living spaces wherein student wellness (success, health and safety) is a primary focus.  Residence Hall policy is intended to support this concept.  Community members should familiarize themselves with relevant policy, including their rights and responsibilities as on-campus residents. A detailed listing is available on the Housing page.

Residents are encouraged to check with staff when unclear about rules such as permissible items, access, etc.  A Community Advisor may be able to help, or you may wish to make an appointment with your Residence Hall Director (schedule with staff at the front desk).

  • When a referral is made for a Community Living Policy (CLP) violation, SRR staff may determine that the Residence Hall Director would be best suited to follow-up on the matter.
  • In such situations, you can expect an e-mail from the Residence Hall Director, who will arrange for an in-hall meeting to review relevant policy and expectations, to assist with any questions you may have, etc.
  • Repeated CLP infractions, failing to attend a CLP meeting or to respond to staff direction regarding the violation may result in a conduct referral.  Residents are encouraged to meet with Housing staff in order to resolve a policy matter without it escalating to a conduct issue.
