Policies and Procedures

Fall 2020 Update

Some policies are different during fall 2020 due to health and safety measures required to reduce the risk of COVID-19. The fall 2020 information is on our Return to Campus webpages now and will be updated here soon.

The College and residence hall policies, rules, and regulations (as outlined in the Undergraduate Student Handbook's Residential Life Policies, the room contract, and this publication) should be interpreted broadly. These policies are not meant to define misconduct in exhaustive detail. Residents are expected to acquaint themselves with the information in all official college publications and to govern themselves accordingly. We have chosen to briefly outline selected policies and procedures here for your convenience. Please refer to the aforementioned publications for more details. If you have questions, please direct them to your AD or your RA.

All rules and regulations are designed to encourage conduct that enhances student growth and development. Our ultimate goal is to maintain a safe, functioning, productive, communal atmosphere in the residence halls. Residents are responsible for following the Nazareth College Code of Student Conduct and other official college publications. Infractions are subject to disciplinary action, which can range from administrative warning to expulsion from the College.
