Housing & Residential Living

Substance-Free Housing Area

Substance-Free Area Purpose

These areas are communities that are substance-free, in order to provide the option of a residential lifestyle free from the possession of alcohol, non-prescription or other illicit drugs, or tobacco products. Members of the community are expected to respect and adhere to the substance-free values in order to uphold the well-being and honor of their peers.

Substance-Free Area Guidelines 

The possession or use of alcohol, controlled substances, and tobacco products by residents or their guests is prohibited in student rooms and public spaces in Substance-Free Areas. If residents or their guests choose to use such substances outside of the Substance-Free Area, the results of that choice must not have a negative impact upon residents or property upon return to the Substance-Free Area. Residents are responsible for the behavior of their guests.

Consequences of Violating Guidelines

Non-compliance with the Substance-Free Area Agreement at any time during the year may result in housing reassignment and/or additional conduct sanctions.
