Policies & Code of Conduct

Like any living community, the Residence Halls have standards of behavior designed to create a positive living environment. Mars Hill’s Student Conduct Code as well as state and federal laws apply to all students who live in university owned and operated housing. Additional policies and guidelines have also been established specifically for the residence halls. These policies are designed to ensure that each resident is respectful of their obligation to a communal living situation. There are three guiding principles or community interests that residential policies and guidelines are designed to support.

View the current 2023–24 Student Handbook here, which lists all Residence Life policies as well as the Student Code of Conduct.

Each resident is responsible for asking himself or herself if a behavior falls under one of these principles and then regulating their behavior accordingly. Residence Life staff may confront residents about any action if the staff member believes this action may go against one of these four principles: Health and Safety, Property Loss and Damage, Maintenance of a Healthy Living and Learning Environment.

If any resident is alleged to have violated the Student Code of Conduct, which includes any violation of Residence Life policy, he/she will be subject to the Student Conduct process. You can find more information on this process in the Student Handbook starting on page 51.
