South Village Policies
South Village Policies
is a community serving multiple types of NAU students including upper-division,
graduate, international and those with families. In an effort to provide an
environment that encourages a variety of lifestyles to be expressed and yet
still maintain the facilities and foster a sense of community, certain policies
have been established. By choosing to live in university housing facilities,
resident and all household members and or guests agree to abide by all policies
while residing in our community: South
Village policies, Standards of Residence, and Student Code of Conduct.
Village Policies are designed to clarify how existing residence hall policies
are applied to special communities and to explain policies that have been
created specifically for communities which include children. However, please
note that each NAU resident and their guests/family members are also
responsible for the policies listed above. Please see a staff member in your
complex if you have any questions.
