Disciplinary Housing Sanctions for Individual or Groups

Housing sanctions may be imposed in conjunction with violations of residence hall policies, in conjunction with violations related to on campus residential facilities (including fraternity and sorority houses), or as otherwise appropriate. Housing sanctions include the following.

Housing Removal

Permanent removal from residence halls, residential colleges, and fraternity/sorority houses. Students removed from housing must comply with all University vacancy procedures, including properly turning in keys and checking-out of the housing unit. All access to the residence hall, residential college, or fraternity/sorority house may be terminated and students may not be able to enter into or visit any residence hall, residential college, or fraternity/sorority house. Housing fees may be forfeited.

Housing Relocation

Requires a student to move to a different residential facility or housing unit. The new location and timeline for move are determined by Residential Services.

Housing Suspension

Requires a student to vacate an assigned residence hall, residential college, or fraternity/sorority house for a specified period of time, with the understanding the student may return to a space within the housing system at the conclusion of that period. Suspended students must comply with all University vacancy procedures, including properly turning in keys and checking out of the hall.  All access to the residence hall, residential college, or fraternity/sorority house may be terminated and students may not be able to enter into or visit any residence hall, residential college, or fraternity/sorority house during the suspension period. Housing fees may be forfeited. Housing Suspension is typically assigned for a minimum of the rest of the quarter, and may be assigned for up to two years.

Housing Probation

A status, imposed for a specific period of time, to allow students to reflect upon their choices and behavior and to demonstrate the ability to abide by policies and expectations. Any violation that occurs while on this status may result in a sanction of not less than relocation, suspension, or removal from a residential facility or fraternity/sorority house. Students may be required to resign any office or committee appointment associated with Residential Services or its affiliated student organizations. Residence Hall Probation is typically assigned for a minimum of the rest of the quarter.

Housing Warning

Formal notice that a student’s actions violated a Housing policy, that such actions are not acceptable in our community, and that further misconduct, or any other violation of a Housing policy, may result in more impactful disciplinary action. Students are thus expected to reflect upon their decisions and to be mindful of how their future choices and actions may impact themselves, others, and the Housing community.

Restriction on Guest Privileges

A student’s privileges with respect to hosting guests in a residential facility may be restricted or revoked for a specified period of time.

Financial Housing Restitution

When damages are done to housing facilities, Financial Housing Restitution may be assigned. Amounts charged to students may include cost to repair, replace, recover, clean, or otherwise account for the property or services affected. When responsible individuals cannot be identified, restitution may be charged to all residents of the smallest applicable area of the housing unit, the total being divided equally. Alternately, residence hall governments may be assessed.
