The University Housing and Dining Services (UHDS) Policy Guide serves as an extension of the UHDS Room and Dining Contract that each resident signs before moving into on-campus housing. When the UHDS contract is signed the resident has agreed to all of the policies outlined in this guide.

This Policy Guide can be made available in alternative formats. Please contact UHDS for alternative format requests.

2023-24 UHDS Policy Guide

(Updated Nov. 30, 2023)

Safety and Security: A Shared Responsibility

Each student living on campus per their Room and Dining Contract, agrees to take primary responsibility for their own safety and security, and to support the safety and security of fellow residents, the buildings and dining areas. The university, and University Housing and Dining Services will work cooperatively with students to promote a safe and secure environment, although absolute safety cannot be guaranteed. The student agrees to read and abide by security policies and precautions stated in the UHDS Policy Guide and other university publications.

Please refer to the Department of Public Safety for information about crisis and disaster response. UHDS strongly recommends that all students register for the campus alert system.
