Rights & Responsibilities

Living in a university residence hall requires students to possess the life skills that are needed to live independently and to interact with other residents in mature, civil, respectful, and healthy ways. It also requires students to recognize, understand, and appreciate that a room, floor, and building are a community. Learn more about your rights and responsibilities as a resident.
