Standards of residence
The Standards of Residence are expectations laid out for all student residents living in university housing at Northern Arizona University.
By signing a housing contract with Housing and Residence Life, you have agreed to abide by these expectations. It is important that you are familiar with the policies contained in the Standards of Residence; you are encouraged to talk with your Resident Assistant or Residence Hall Director if you have any questions or concerns.
The Standards of Residence supplement the NAU Student Code of Conduct, which fully outlines disciplinary infractions and possible outcomes resulting from these infractions. In the university housing system, discipline can be handled by Housing and Residence Life staff, or the designee of the Dean of Students.
A student who violates any policies in the Standards of Residence or Code of Conduct may be accountable to civil and criminal authorities, as well as to the university. Disciplinary action at the university may proceed even while a criminal investigation is progress.
All members of the university community are responsible for reviewing these policies. The wording and content of policies contained in this online publication supersede any printed versions.
To report a violation of the Standards of Residence or the NAU Code of Conduct, visit the Student Life Rights and Responsibilities page, then click on “File a complaint regarding student behavior on campus”.
