Code of Conduct

The provisions of Sections 41301 and 41302 of Title 5, California Code of Regulations, which relate to student conduct on campus, are applicable to the residence halls. A copy of the regulations may be found at http://www.csus.edu/student/osc/. Residents not in compliance with residence hall and Title 5 regulations may be subject to University disciplinary action. It is your responsibility as a student of the University to educate yourself on these regulations.

As adults, you are responsible for your behavior and accountable for your actions. You are expected to use common sense and behave maturely and responsibly while residing in the residence halls and attending the University.  All residence hall students are responsible for adhering to policies stated in the License Agreement and the Guide to Residential Life Handbook. Policy violations could result in disciplinary sanctions including revocation of your License Agreement without refund.

You must take into account the densely populated environment of the residence halls. Thus, individual freedom is limited when it infringes on another’s rights. With this in mind:

As a residence hall student at Sacramento State you are encouraged to think and act for yourself; however, we also expect you to understand that the Housing and Residential Life office has non-negotiable values in which it strongly believes. These values include: Respect, Civility, Citizenship and Individual and Social Responsibility. These values are the hallmark of the department and will be protected diligently.  Each resident has the right and ability to make decisions about his or her own conduct. Just as importantly, each resident has the responsibility to accept the consequences of those decisions. When an individual’s behavior conflicts with the values of Housing and Residential Life, he or she must adapt his or her behavior to meet the needs of the community, or leave the residence halls. Carefully considering that particular choice—the conscious choice whether to be a part of a community, whether to change his or her behavior to fit the community’s standards—helps each person define who he or she is in the community and in society at large. It can be a formative choice for you with far-reaching implications and should not be taken lightly.
