Housing Conduct Process

Housing and Residential Education works to provide convenient housing that is secure, inclusive and supportive. Students create a home in our on-campus communities, build life-long friendships and develop skills for their current and future successes as they journey through their Carolina experience.  

To uphold the mission of our department, we have established a set of Community Living Standards, outlined below. These policies are designed to outline your rights and responsibilities while living on-campus. Violations of the Community Living Standards will be adjudicated through the Housing Conduct Process.



If a resident violates the Honor Code or other policies, the resident will be referred to the Office of Student Conduct for further disciplinary action. It is possible for a violation to be serious enough that a resident will go through the Residence Hall Conduct Process and be referred to the Student Attorney General's Office.



Interim administrative actions are assigned in serious or severe alleged violations of the Community Living Standards. These interim actions are assigned before a conduct hearing in cases where it is in the best interest of the community and/or the alleged to be removed from the community and/or to prohibit contact between individuals. Interim actions are in place until the matter is resolved via the Housing Conduct Process (including the appellate process, if applicable), and do not replace the hearing process. A hearing will be granted in a reasonable amount of time. The Director of Housing & Residential Education or designee may defer procedural due process and enforce an interim measure. The following actions may be taken to facilitate student conduct processes. Violations of these interim actions may result in additional charges, including failure to comply.

  1.  Interim Housing No Contact Order:  The student is prohibited from any form of contact within the residence halls (such as verbal contact, contact via any electronic medium, contact via a third party, etc.) with a specific person or persons.
  2. Interim Housing Suspension of Privileges:  The student is prohibited from utilizing privileges such as, but not limited to, restriction of access to specific buildings or residential spaces, break housing permissions, loaner flex and key usage, visitation and guest privileges, or equipment check out. The privilege that is suspended will be specified. 
  3. Interim Housing Administrative Reassignment:  The student is temporary relocated from one community to another. Residents who receive an interim administrative reassignment are prohibited from entering the floor, wing, or building which they were originally assigned.
