Rules and Policies
Our community values the health, safety, and personal wellbeing of all residents and staff, and we are committed to fostering inclusive and engaged community living experiences.
We see this as a shared responsibility and expect residents to support Housing rules and University policies with the understanding that there are consequences when these expectations are not met.
Reach out to your Community Advisor, CA on Duty, or Residence Director with any concerns about your residential community.
Concerns experienced outside of your building may be reported to the Office for Community Standards.
Racist behavior or stereotyping is not tolerated.
If you experience harassment, xenophobia, or discrimination, reach out to your Community Advisor or Residence Director. You can also report to the Bias Response and Referral Network.
Computers and other information technology resources are valuable tools and should be used and managed responsibly. University community members are granted access to these resources and are responsible for their appropriate use.
Housing residents have access to many technology resources and services exclusive to their building community. All residents must comply with the following agreement in order to access the University network. Learn more about technology services in your building.
I wish to utilize the computer network in the residence halls/apartments of Housing & Residential Life. In order to be connected to this network, I have read and agree to the University's Acceptable Use of Information Technology Resources Policy along with the following rules relating to the use of my computer (or of anyone using my computer) during the current academic year.
- To maintain a current version of an anti-virus software on my computer.
- To maintain my computer following best practices (e.g., maintain strong passwords, security patches, operating system and software updates, AntiVirus software, software firewall).
- Not to make unauthorized use of another individual’s identification or password.
- Not to conduct or solicit business.
- Not to violate copyright restrictions (e.g., sharing copyrighted music, videos, etc.).
- Not to scan the University or Internet hosts, connections or IP numbers.
- Not to use the connection and the computer as a server (e.g., music, video, peer to peer, ftp, and other anonymous file sharing programs that share with others are servers). ResNet is provided as a limited capacity, single-user service only - one jack/IP per user.
- Not to use anonymous file sharing or anonymous access to the network. (Strong passwords or other authentication is required.)
- Not to extend the University network by using WiFi access points (base stations).
- To follow recommended guidelines for using gaming consoles.
This list is meant to be illustrative, not exhaustive. At its discretion, the University may use its capabilities to examine networked devices and resources for violations of the University policies and rules above.
I also understand that as a resident I must abide by the Housing & Residential Life Residence Hall Community Behavioral Standards.
I recognize that violations of these regulations may result in the revocation of my privilege to use the ethernet jack/computer network and that Housing & Residential Life is not responsible for any losses that I may incur as a result of revocation due to my actions.
