Living within your building are three Resident Assistants, who are members of the Residence Life staff. These individuals are graduate or undergraduate students who will be available to assist you with check-in/check-out, maintenance and custodial concerns, personal issues and academic problems. In addition, RA's organize events to help foster a sense of community and hold periodic meetings to update you on important information.
The following guidelines are established to ensure a safe and healthy living environment for West Campus residents. All policies and procedures found in the Blue Book, "Student Handbook" and the Residence Life Section, are also applicable to students living in the apartments.
Residents of the West Campus Apartments will be able to access the apartment building in which they live only, on a 24 hour basis. For security purposes the following applies:
Each residence hall and apartment maintains “Quiet Hours” from 8:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m., Sunday through Thursday and 11 p.m. to 8 a.m. on weekends. During those hours, residents are expected to refrain from any activity which is disruptive to the residential community. During exam periods residence hall “Quiet Hours” will be extended to include 24 hours of each reading and exam day.
When “Quiet Hours” are not in effect, consideration and respect for others should continue to guide a resident’s behavior and activities. Radios, stereos, musical instruments and other sound amplification equipment should be utilized at levels that do not disturb other residents. The placement of speakers in room or hallway windows for the purpose of directing music or noise into public areas is prohibited.These items may be banned or confiscated if they become cause for complaint or disruption.
All outdoor events must be approved by the Office for Residence Life and the Student Development Office. Outdoor activities involving microphones, speakers, sound systems or bands are prohibited. For reasons of fire safety, sanitation and grounds maintenance, the use of grills and/or hibachis are prohibited in and around the West Campus Apartments, except in a designated picnic area. In the absence of formal approval, gatherings in the designated picnic area are limited to no more than 8 individuals. To reserve the picnic area, please contact our office.
No pets are permitted in the apartments.
Students interested in making a room change should contact the Office for Residence Life, ext. 94155. Room changes are the exclusive responsibility of Residence Life. Changes made without approval may result in loss of apartment residency.
All residence halls and apartments are smoke free. Smoking is strictly prohibited in all areas (public areas and student rooms) of these buildings.
Under no condition should windows be blocked or window screens removed except in the case of an emergency. Displays such as banners, collections, decals and signs (electric or otherwise) are prohibited. Additionally, it is recommended that residents keep windows locked.
