Residents in university housing facilities possess specific individual and group rights while engaged in activities that are part of university life. With these rights, residents have reciprocal responsibilities to ensure these same rights for other residents. Housing personnel should educate residents regarding these rights and responsibilities that are associated with community living and use them as a guide in making decisions concerning resident welfare and behavior. – Association of College and University Housing Officers-International, Statement of Residents’ Rights and Responsibilities, approved 1987, revised 2002.

The Department of Residence Life works in tandem with the Residence Hall Association, student governance body of the residence halls, in a review and recommendation process to implement and enforce the Residence Life policies. The Residence Life policies are detailed in the document linked below:
