Living in the community
Housing Services seeks to serve the University's educational objectives by offering housing facilities which provide a setting in which individual education is furthered.
The intent of the rules and regulations is to establish reasonable limits within which the greatest number of residents can work effectively and live pleasantly.
The basic rights of a living unit include reasonable protection from behavior that is dangerous or disturbing and peace, quiet and public order in the residence sufficient to provide adequate conditions for study and sleep.
Students should be mindful that they are living in town with other members of the Lewisburg community and families. Community respect is expected and guidelines for noise and cleanliness should be observed. When leaving bars and restaurants late at night, minimize noise and behave properly.
Student behavior off campus is subject to the sanctions of local authorities, however it may also be subject to on campus disciplinary procedures. Students living off-campus who are cited at their residence by the local authorities for disorderly conduct, excessive noise, underage drinking, etc., will additionally have their conduct reviewed in on campus proceedings.
The Off-Campus Living Review Board or conduct officer from the Deans of Students Office will determine responsibility and sanctioning on a case by case basis as outlined in the Student Handbook. Note that actions brought by local police and those procedures and proceedings are not related to and are separate from those on campus.
If it is determined that a student must return to campus, they must move into a University-owned or controlled facility by the last day of the month in which the decision is made.
