Residence Community Standards
The Residence Community values respect, diversity, safety, equity, learning and community and has developed processes to attend to student conduct that is consistent with these values.
If a student behaves contrary to the Residence Community Standards (which includes the House Rules and a set of Rights and Responsibilities), there are three processes to address the behaviour: the Residence Community Standards and its restorative process; the Breach of Residence Contract process described below (Your Lease), and/or the Code of Student Behaviour.
Review the House Rules for your residence.

Restorative Justice and the Residence Community Standards
The Residence Community Standards policy lays out expectations and processes for students to resolve their own issues by identifying the harm caused by a behaviour and creatively finding ways to repair that harm. Both the students who cause the harm and those that experience it will have a say in the outcome. Our system is designed to build community and strengthen ties between students living in residence. It also provides a mechanism for students to truly consider their behaviour, its consequences and better options.
More information about Restorative Justice is available here.
The Residence Contract
The University maintains its role as Landlord and can enforce the Lease / Residence Agreement (referred to as the Residence Contract) in cases where behaviours cross over into a breach of that contract.
More information about your Residence Contract is available here.
Code of Student Behaviour
In addition, the Code of Student Behaviour applies to all students, including those living in Residence. It will be applied in cases where the behaviour is a violation of the Code and the criteria for a restorative process are not met.
