Student Handbook

Search and/or Inspection of Student Rooms

Revised August 17, 2020

Residents have the right to be secure in regard to their person and possessions. Residents’ right to privacy will be respected. However, the University’s responsibility to protect its buildings and property necessitates a right to enter your room. The University may conduct a search of your room in a residence hall for, among other things, the purpose of inspection or repair; and to ensure compliance with federal, state, local criminal law and University policies, where there is cause to believe that a violation has occurred or is taking place.

Note: Health and Safety Inspections will be conducted mid-way through the first semester, at the beginning of each holiday break, and before the termination of your period of occupancy.
