The issues of human dignity, equality, and safety are non-negotiable in all Utah State University Housing communities. We are dedicated to each
resident’s achievement of academic excellence. Choosing to join this community obligates each member to a code of civilized ideals, principles, and
responsible behaviors compatible with the educational environment. As such, Housing and Food Services declares its support of and adherence to
the following principles.

Residential Support Principle
A member of the USU Hhousing community supports, practices, and respects:
1. Personal and academic integrity through elimination of deceit, plagiarism, lying, and disloyalty.
2. Dignity of all persons, by not demeaning, teasing, ridiculing, or insulting individuals or groups.
3. Rights and property of others, by demonstrating concern for them and asking first before borrowing or using items and property.
4. Discouraging bigotry, by striving to learn from and accept the inherent differences in people, ideas, and opinions which contribute to an academic
community.
5. Keeping the living environment clean and attractive, knowing that such an environment is essential to positive physical, mental, and academic
health.



                                                                         9
6. Refraining from and discouraging all behaviors which threaten the freedom and respect all residents deserve, by challenging friends and neighbors
within the housing community to abide by these fundamental expectations and personally confronting those who do violate them in an appropriate
manner.

Community Equality Principle
Various cultural and ethnic groups compose the USU Housing community. Residents are afforded unique and valuable opportunities to interact with
a variety of people different from themselves. Housing and Food Services is committed to respecting diversity and equality among its students and
residents, seeking to:
1. Aid students in the enhancement of their cultural experiences:
2. Promote cultural acknowledgment among all religions, races, national origins, and ages:
3. Encourage respect for different abilities, sexual orientations, and genders:
4. Advance on-going resident consideration of their fellow student residents, as well as their shared values and common experiences.

Safety and Anti-Violence Principle
Housing and Food Services is committed to creating a community free from violence by not condoning conduct which threatens or abuses the health,
safety, and/or psychological well-being of any person on or within Housing property. Students are expected to behave in a manner which does not
diminish the quality of life within their residential community and living/learning environment.

This includes, but is not limited to, physical assault, battery, sexual assault or harassment, dating violence, domestic violence, stalking, threats,
reckless endangerment to others, intimidation, indecent exposure, etc., whether against other residents, family members, or visitors, and whether

The legally binding term of the Housing Contract is for the entire academic year, Fall and Spring Semesters, or remaining portion thereof. The
contract begins on the date designated in the assignment letter, or the date moved in, whichever comes first. If the Housing and DiningFood Services
Office permits occupancy in advance of the contract date or afterwards at student request, the contract is deemed amended and still enforceable.
Contracts do not overlap academic years. Residents will be required to attend a scheduled New Resident Orientation (FSH) or welcome meeting
(SSH) that will provide important information to new residents.

FSH: Family Housing contracts expire on June 1st. The flex move-out period allows for no-fee move-out any time between May 1st and June 1st,
provided proper checkout procedures are followed. Anyone moving out of Family Housing at any other time and not for any of the pre-approved
reasons will be charged a termination fee equal to one month’s rent and will automatically forfeit their security deposit.

SSH: Single Housing contract expires the last day of Spring Semester Finals. Any extension requested for involvement in Graduation ceremonies
or support services, academic project completion, travel complications, etc, requires proof in writing and permission from Pro Staff. Disruptive
residents will be asked to leave earlier if they do not heed the academic dictates of Finals Week.

are available at no charge to residents. Only residents who go to the H&FS Office and sign a winter break contract before the last day of Finals Week     Formatted: Font: 9 pt
during Fall Semester will be allowed to stay during the holiday break. Residents not remaining in Housing for Spring Semester are not allowed to          Formatted: Font: 9 pt
sign a winter break contract and must complete a proper check-out no later than 2:00 p.m. the day after finals end. AV Grad/Singles: Those
residents who choose not to sign a winter break contract will be required to turn in their apartment/door key. Failure to sign a winter break contract    Formatted: Font: 9 pt
and/or turn in room/apt. keys will result in a re-key of the room/apt. at the resident’s expense.

Any request to cancel your contract after occupancy must be submitted on a Notice of Intent-to-Vacate form provided by Housing, before deadline
dates specified for each Semester. Failure to submit Notice by this date will result in automatic forfeiture of the deposit.

The move-out date you listed on the Notice will be considered “firm.” The space will subsequently be assigned to a student on the waiting list. A
firm Notice date can be withdrawn or amended only if there is not a waiting list.

Cancellation of a submitted Intent to Vacate form does not guarantee a return to your original space within Housing. Renewed occupancy
obligates the resident to full financial and legal responsibilities, with re-assumption of all other contractual provisions.

Failure to move out of your space by the original or amended date you listed on the Notice, and/or keeping the check-out appointment time
subsequently assigned to you by your RA or ResidentialPhysical Facilities, will automatically result in a forfeited deposit, an additional $20 per day
fee (FSH), and accrual of daily rent and utilities until your space is vacated and the keys returned to your respective Area (SSH) or
ResidentialPhysical Facilities (FSH) staff.

Failure to properly check out will result in forfeiture of deposit, and billing for accrued rent and any additional cleaning/damage charges.

Contract Renewal                                                                                                                                            Formatted: Justified
A Housing contract is renewable annually, at the discretion of Housing and DiningFood Services, for a maximum number of five additional renewals
(six total years). Housing reserves the right to refuse housing to any resident who becomes delinquent in rental and utility payments, or who has
demonstrated an unwillingness or continual inability to abide by community rules, regulations and policies within the housing system, as well as
those who exceed the six-year residency eligibility.

SSH: Each academic year, current residents have first choice over incoming students of halls, rooms and roommate choices for the following
academic year. Check with the Housing and DiningFood Services Office, Hall Staff or watch for published advertisements with detailed
information.

FSH: A new contract must be signed by the residents and returned to Housing no later than 30 days prior to the expiration date of the current
contract. Failure to complete the contract renewal form by the required deadline may result in termination of your contract as of the current contract-
ending date and forfeiture of your deposit.

or the ResidentialPhysical Facilities Office. Payments can also be made via credit card over the phone or online. All payments put in drop boxes
will be credited to the following business day. In the event a bill is not received, the student is still responsible to make the payment by the 12th of
each month. Furthermore, the student agrees to pay $20 for each bad check issued to Housing and DiningFood Services. Rent is subject to change
with 45 days written notice to resident.

Residents entering the residence halls during the first two weeks of the semester will pay the full contract amount. Residents entering the 15th day
onward will have their semester contractual amount prorated on a per-week basis.

Acceptance by the University of any rental payment may be deemed a waiver of no other breach than the failure to make timely payment of the rental
installment accepted.

The resident may terminate the contract agreement prior to the end of the term, provided that at least 30 days written notice is given to Housing and
Food Services, and such notice is given to Housing and Dining Food Services within 15 days of receipt of notice of rent increase.

long distance calling card. All utility charges are subject to change and are non-refundable. All services provided are subject to elimination at the
option of the University with 30 days written notice.

Failure to provide electricity, hot and cold water, and/or heat shall not be a reason for reduction, abatement, or withholding of rent or other payments
legally due. No rent adjustment or other compensation shall be claimed by a resident for inconvenience or discomfort arising from the making of
repairs, improvements to facilities, temporary service outages, or causes beyond Housing’s control, provided such occurrences are remedied within a
reasonable amount of time and with minimal inconvenience to the resident.

If the resident’s account remains unpaid by the close of business on the 12th day of the month and prior payment arrangements have not been made,
Housing will assess a monthly late fee of $20 on any outstanding balance. All delinquent accounts can be handled further by:
           placement of a “hold” on applicable meal plans, transcripts, and/or diploma for resident(s);

On-campus housing exists to support and complement the academic mission of the University. As such, Housing has devised rules, regulations and
standards that maximize acceptable residential levels for study, sleep, and privacy. On-campus housing units are intended for primary use by
residents of that unit.

Community living requires each resident to be aware that his/her behavior or actions will affect other residents. Residents and their guests must not
disturb, annoy, harass or interfere with residents or staff. At all times, residents and their guests are required to abide by all University and Housing
regulations regarding student conduct, as well as applicable federal, state, and local laws. In all circumstances, respect for the rights of other
residents will be considered the highest priority. If problems arise that residents cannot resolve initially among themselves, please seek
assistance from a RA or other Housing staff.

It is the resident's responsibility to be aware of all announced or posted deadlines, requirements, potential fines, or other general information
distributed or published by Housing staff. Failure to adhere to any established Housing policies and regulations stated herein, or to maintain facilities
and furnishings in requested conditions, can subject the resident to a full range of possible fines, disciplinary sanctions, judicial proceedings, legal
actions, and/or eviction, for either singular or repeated occurrences.

Housing and Dining Food Services also reserves the right to evict or refuse housing to any resident who has demonstrated an unwillingness to abide          Formatted: Font: 9 pt
by rules and regulations, or who demonstrates behavior which is incompatible with the maintenance of residential order and educational propriety.
See “Disciplinary Action and Sanctions” on page 38 for more information. There is much more to living on-campus than the necessities of a bed,
desk, phone, etc. The USUUtah State University educational experience extends beyond the classroom into the Housing community through the                   Formatted: Font: 9 pt
Residence Life program. On-campus Housing is an enriching living/learning community of peers. Housing provides a positive and supportive
community environment where supplemental learning occurs through programs offered by the Residence Life staff. Numerous opportunities for
social interactions, personal growth, and educational programs are available. We encourage you to become actively involved in your Housing
community!

Disciplinary Actions and Sanctions
The Residence Life staff is primarily responsible for disciplinary actions undertaken within their respective Areas concerning violations of University
and/or Housing rules and regulations. Each resident is expected to comply or cooperate with any authorized University official as requested, acting
in the performance of their duties and within the scope of their authority. Housing staff represents the University and are considered its agents
and officials, with authority commensurate and necessary to accomplish a requested task or action. Failure to comply with verbal and/or
written instructions issued by Housing staff, or impeding their performance or duties, will be deemed a violation and could result in a $100 fine.
Such behavior can result in referral to higher-level campus administrators who have the authority to sanction the individual to University probation,
or suspend any violator from the University, according to the University Student Code. The University reserves the right to remove any resident
or their guest from Housing when deemed necessary for the best interest of the University, resident, or community. Parent(s)/legal
guardian(s) can be notified of action(s) being taken for those under 21 years of age. All notification will be handled by the Campus Judicial
Officer.

A resident evicted from the Housing system for disciplinary reasons will be charged the remaining rent for the academic year and the full costs of all
vandalism or damages incurred. Eviction will result in forfeiture of security deposit and loss of Housing contractual privileges for at least a
year.


                                                                              24
Residence Life staff can impose any sanction they deem necessary in no specific order. Failure to comply with stated or written directions, or
violations of contractual or Handbook obligations as stated herein, can each result in various discretionary staff responses. The range of disciplinary
sanctions available singularly or in combination to Residence Life staff include, but are not limited to:
1. VERBAL WARNING. A violation occurred, but discussion resolved the issue.
2. WRITTEN WARNING. A written letter from Housing informing the resident of their unacceptable actions, as well as making them aware of the
possible consequences should they repeat the violation.
3. LETTER OF APOLOGY. To be delivered to the injured party after review by Housing staff.
4. COMMUNITY SERVICE PROJECTS. Projects of a remedial or educational nature may be assigned. These may include custodial/maintenance
assignments, constructive projects, or research assignments. All projects are designed to give the resident a better understanding of his/her behavior,
and are related to the violation or serve to correct the result of the violation. They must be completed by a deadline set and agreed upon by the
Housing staff and the resident.
5. FINES. Published fines or fees may be imposed, as established and printed in this Handbook and/or other Housing documents or flyers.
6. RESTITUTION. Monetary compensation paid for damages to Housing property or individual property.
7. REQUIRED COUNSELING. Referral to the Counseling Center, Student Wellness Center, Affirmative Action Office, or other University

8. RESTRICTION FROM DESIGNATED AREAS AND/OR FACILITIES. Residents found in violation of any established Housing policy or                                 Formatted: Justified
found vandalizing or abusing any facilities or equipment may be restricted from these areas, or prohibited from the use of the facility or equipment.     Formatted: Font: 9 pt
9. DISCIPLINARY TRANSFER. A staff recommendation for transfer of an unruly resident to another room/apartment, floor, or building will be
implemented only upon approval from the Assistant Director for Residence Life. A resident may be removed from Housing for an interim period,              Formatted: Font: 9 pt
pending resolution of a particular situation. All associated relocation costs are at his/her expense.                                                     Formatted: Font: 9 pt
10. PROBATION. May be assessed by Housing and DiningFood Services for a specified period of time. Sanction may encompass a particular area
or be applied within the Housing system. Resident is also informed that another violation may result in eviction.                                         Formatted: Font: 9 pt
11. NON-RENEWAL OF CONTRACT. Resident will not be allowed to sign a contract for the next academic year contract period, or a student may                 Formatted: Font: 9 pt
be released from an existing signed contract.
12. EVICTION. Any staff recommendation for eviction will be referred to the Assistant Director for Residence Life. A resident may not avoid a             Formatted: Font: 9 pt
Notice to Quit Premises by not accepting the notice. The notice may by lawfully delivered or served in person, attached to the door, or mailed. The       Formatted: Font: 9 pt

SSH: Once assignments are made, no moves or changes between halls or rooms will be made during the first two weeks of each semester without
explicit approval from Pro oStaff and the Assistant Director for Residence Life.

SSH: Residents need prior approval from their Pro roStaff member to move within the Housing system during the academic year. The first move is
free with any subsequent moves costing $75 per move. The fee needs to be paid prior to the move. All moves must be completed within
three (3) days of approval. Any unauthorized moves will result in an additional $100 fee. All moves must be done according to Housing and

Food Services policies and in coordination with designated Hall Staff. Residents moving to a new hall who do not check-out of their current hall
appropriately will be charged for an improper check-out, as well as any additional cleaning and damage charges.

FSH: Transfer in Family Housing assignments are approved only as space becomes available and in order applications are received. Usually
transfers are accommodated only if the apartment moved to is an “upgrade” (i.e., two-bedroom to three-bedroom; two-bedroom to Townhouse, etc.).
A resident transferring from one apartment to another has no more than three days to complete the move. The resident has access to both apartments
during this time with rent and utilities prorated for both (including the overlap days). To transfer apartments a resident must:
           Be in “Good Standing” for no less than two (2) consecutive semesters, defined as: being current with rent and utility payments;
           maintaining a successful payment track record; and uninvolved in disciplinary matters or residential conflicts.
           Submit written request for an apartment transfer on the form provided at the ResidentailHousing Physical Facilities Office.
           Pay a $150 transfer fee at the time the transfer is made.
           Any non-disabled resident occupying space in one of the limited number of modified accessible units available, will be asked to relocate to
           another space should a person more in need of that unit’s unique facilities seek housing on-campus. No transfer fee will be assessed.
           Where possible, reasonable advance notice will be given.

SSH: Private and single rooms are available in traditional-style halls. A limited number of private and single rooms are available in upper
divisionclass/graduate housing in Aggie Village.

Where a room is occupied by two residents, each occupant will be charged the shared rate. Some rooms/apartments may become under-occupied
during the semester. When a resident initially assigned to a shared room loses a roommate, and a vacancy occurs, the University may ask the
remaining occupant to select one of the following options: 1) moving to another shared room with a current vacancy; 2) finding a new roommate of
his/her choice; 3) accepting a new roommate provided by Housing; or 4) take the room as a guaranteed private, paying a pro-rated premium for the
private room based on the resulting benefit of increased space and privacy for the rest of the semester.

Residents will be notified to indicate their preference if they wish to keep their current room and pay for a private, or move and participate in the
consolidation process. All consolidations are done as space becomes available after the second week of each Semester, and until approximately the
fourth full week of each Semester. The University reserves the right to reassign residents for the benefit of the University, the resident and/or the
residential community. Such efforts are necessary to ensure equity for all students regarding payment for private space.

Staff will be available to assist residents during check-ins, answer any questions, and direct residents to their assignment. Residents will be given a
room and key inventory form for their room, pertaining to its condition. This is a permanent record in the resident’s file regarding the check-in
condition of their room. Be thorough, as this form will be used at checkout to assess damages that may have occurred. After the resident has verified
the condition of their room, the form needs to be returned to Housing staff to receive the room/apartment key.

FSH: Family Housing residents report to the Residentail Housing Physical Facilities Office at 1125 N. 1000 E., to check-in and pick-up apartment
keys. Residents will receive Welcome Packet information and on assessment form regarding the check-in condition of the apartment. Verify its

Each resident must be alert to the danger of fires. The following items or actions can represent a potential fire hazard and are therefore prohibited. A
minimum $25 fine may result for each prohibited item discovered by staff, with fines escalating for repeat offenses.
1. Incense and incense burners
2. Candles and other open flame items are expressly prohibited campus-wide unless authorized by the University Fire Marshall. Decorative candles
may be displayed but are strongly discouraged. Wicks must remain white and unburned. Candle usage may be requested to the University Fire
Marshall for:
           theatrical or other entertaining arts performances
           dining and food services areas
           special religious ceremonies
           other purposes as may appear necessary

7. Installing plastic or paper liners in and around apartment stoves.
8. Taping or hanging material from smoke detectors or fire extinguishers.
9. All electrical appliances and cords must meet UL (Underwriters Laboratory) safety standards. UL-approved power strips must be used when
more than two electrical items share an outlet. The Utah State University Fire Marshal highly recommends purchasing extension cords manufactured
by Fire Shield (available at WalMart for under $10) which senses damage caused by overload, overheating, pinching or aging and shuts off the power
in 25/1000 of a second if a dangerous condition is detected.
10. Grilling on BBQs within 10 feet of any housing building. If your grill uses propane the tank must be 5 gallons/20 pounds or less or it cannot be         Formatted: Highlight
stored on your porch.

Fire drills or fire safety programs are conducted by the University Fire Marshal and Residence Life staff to ensure that residents are familiar with
emergency evacuation procedures and general fire safety. When requested or mandated, all occupants must immediately evacuate a residence hall.
Interfering with or noncompliance will result in disciplinary action, including a $100 fine. Residents are also required by the Fire Marshal to keep
hallways, stairwells, and balconies clear of obstructions at all times, to facilitate proper access and egress.

A fire extinguisher is located in all apartments on the kitchen wall. In traditional housing the extinguisher is located in the hallways on each floor. If
the extinguisher is discharged while putting out a fire, promptly notify the Residential FacilitiesPF Office. If it occurs after-hours or on weekends,
immediately notify the Utah State University Police at 7-1939. The extinguisher will be replaced immediately at no cost. Extinguisher must not be
rehung or relocated after discharge.

Fire extinguishers or other equipment can only be discharged in an actual fire emergency. Starting fires, tampering with or misuse of fire
safety equipment, or falsely reporting a fire may result in criminal prosecution.

Fire extinguishers are checked by the University Fire Marshal at least annually. If an extinguisher is found to be empty, tampered with, relocated, or
missing, the student apartment will be charged $50 for recharging and/or replacement. Periodically inspect the fire extinguisher gauge to be certain
it is properly charged. If the needle indicates that it is undercharged or overcharged, call the PF Office immediately for replacement.

FSH: The RA's will demonstrate how to use the fire extinguisher if needed during New Resident Orientation.

Smoke detectors are located in all Housing facilities. When the detector is activated, it will make a loud, piercing sound. When the detector beeps
intermittently, the batteries need to be replaced. It is the resident's responsibility to report to ResidentialHousing Physical Facilities whenever the
smoke detector is inoperable or batteries need to be replaced.

Excessive amounts of smoke from cooking, or steam from the bathroom, may activate a smoke detector. If your smoke detector is really sensitive
notify ResidentialPhysical Facilities.

Any smoke detector problems after 4:30 p.m. or on weekends can be directed to our On-Call Maintenance staff, and will be handled as quickly as
possible. Calls can also be left after-hours on the dispatch voice mail at ResidentialPhysical Facilities and will be handled the next morning. Please
leave your name, apartment number, time of call, and current problem with the detector.

Fire Sprinklers                                                                                                                                             Formatted: Justified
Many Housing buildings have recently been retrofitted with new fire sprinklers. It is critical that residents not tamper with the sprinkler systems,
especially the sprinkler heads. The water in the sprinkler systems is under tremendous pressure and a damaged sprinkler head or pipe can lead to
significant damage to both the building and resident’s property. The resident will be responsible for all damages caused to Housing fFacilities by
breaking/or tampering with a sprinkler head. Housing is not responsible for any damage or losses that occur because of sprinklers being activated for
any reason. Housing strongly recommends residents seek insurance for their personal property (see pg. 27).

In Case of Fire                                                                                                                                             Formatted: Justified
Before a fire:
Know the escape route and meeting location your RA has designated for your area. A smoke detector can wake you, but only an escape plan can
save you. All residents should recognize the alarm signal and how to respond. In the event that you hear a neighbor's smoke detector ringing for an
extended period of time, contact the fire department first and the Housing Physical Facilities Office next, or after hours On-Call Maintenance.
If a fire occurs:                                                                                                                                           Formatted: Justified
Grab your keys (if possible) and walk to the nearest exit. Most smoke and dangerous gases rise, so keep your body low and move quickly. If
necessary, crawl so you do not breathe the smoke.
If you suspect a fire, touch the door or handle with the back of your hand before opening it, with your hand covered for protection. Intense heat,
deadly smoke, or gas may be on the other side. If it is not hot, open it cautiously a few inches to check the other side for heat, smoke, or flames.
Keep your body out of the opening doorway and be ready to slam it shut if any heat or smoke appears.
Do not waste time getting dressed or gathering valuables. Get out of the building immediately.
Call the Fire Department from OUTSIDE the building. Dial 911 or call the University Police Department, and report the location of the fire.
Stay on the telephone until instructed to hang up. Alert other room/apartment occupants, if possible.

Carbon Monoxide                                                                                                                                             Formatted: Justified
Carbon Monoxide (CO) is a colorless, odorless, poisonous gas produced by burning fuels such as natural gas, propane, kerosene, wood or charcoal
with an inadequate air supply. When inhaled, CO interferes with the normal supply of oxygen to body tissues. High concentrations of CO over long
periods of time can cause serious side effects, and even death. Symptoms of CO exposure include headaches, nausea, dizziness and weakness,
breathing problems, and blueness around the lips or eyelids. If you have these signs and symptoms, immediately leave the area and find a source of
fresh air.

Carbon monoxide can occur when gas kitchen stoves and grills are used for home heating. It can be produced by blocked chimneys and vents, or
faulty and improperly installed gas appliances. Carbon monoxide can also collect when fuel-powered equipment is used in the home without proper
ventilation.

Personal CO detectors are available on the retail market. However, Housing has neither tested them nor endorses any particular brand. Residents
who do purchase their own detectors are advised to invest in good quality units which are Underwriter's Laboratory (UL) approved, and to use and
service these detectors in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations. If you suspect a CO problem, call PF Office as soon as possible.

Smoking                                                                                                                                                     Formatted: Justified
The "Utah Indoor Clean Air Act" (1995) states: "a person may not smoke in a building, or portion of a building that is owned, leased, or occupied by
the state or any state agency." Utah State University is a state-owned agency; therefore, all Housing property is subject to this act. Housing can levy
fines in the amount of $25 for failure to comply, and/or seek eviction.

Smoking outside must take place a minimum of twenty-five (25) feet away from any building entrance, exit, air-intake, and windows that can be
opened. Used cigarettes must be properly disposed of and not left on the grounds. Improper disposal is considered littering and could result in a fine
of $299.

Substance Abuse Violations Alcohol/Drug Policy and Sanctions                                                                                                Formatted: Justified
The Utah State University Student Code prohibits possession, consumption, sale, distribution, manufacture, or storage of any alcoholic beverage
(including beer) on University property, both single and family housing facilities. Housing regulations further prohibit possession or storage of full or
empty alcoholic beverage, bottles/containers/receptacles, as well as brewing kits and neon advertising materials. These prohibitions apply
equally to all residents regardless of age.


                                                                           30
Possession and/or use of any controlled substance without a valid prescription is illegal. Sale, manufacture, and/or distribution of all controlled
substances are illegal as defined by United States and State of Utah laws. Alcohol and drug violations are subject to investigation and/or prosecution
by University, local, and/or other law enforcement authorities. Residents are responsible for their own behavior and that of their guests. All alcohol
and drug incidents will be documented by Housing staff, with copies placed in the resident’s file. Possession of alcohol or drugs, or any violation of
University or Housing policy while under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or intoxicants, constitutes an alcohol/drug violation. Residents choosing to
violate these policies must accept the consequences for their actions. The presence of prohibited items can be construed as evidence of use,
consumption, and/or trafficking, or at least an aggravating factor connected with illegal activity. Consumption of alcohol on-campus at Utah State
University is strictly prohibited. No first-offense warning will be given. Housing will enforce a zero-tolerance policy concerning consumption of
alcohol by minors, as well as all illegal drug use.

NOTE: Under recent revision of FERPA, the University may elect to contact the parents of students under 21 involved in alcohol and/or
drug violations.

Utah State University will not tolerate sexual harassment and/or assault in any form, including acquaintance rape. Sexual assault includes
unwelcome sexual advances, requests, favors, verbal or physical contact, implicit or explicit conditions or terms placed on employment or education
which have the effect of interfering, intimidating or creating a hostile or offensive environment. Sexual harassment is defined under the Utah State
University Policy Number 339, Utah State University Policy Manual, as unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or
physical conduct of a sexual nature, when:
a. submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of an individual's employment or a student's academic
success.
b. submission to or rejection of such conduct by an individual is used as the basis for employment or academic decisions affecting such individuals.
c. such conduct unreasonably interferes with an individual's work or academic performance or creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working
or learning environment.
Sexual harassment may include, but is not limited to: (1) continued or repeated verbal abuse of a sexual nature; (2) repeated offensive sexual
flirtations, advances, propositions; (3) graphic verbal commentaries about an individual's body; (4) sexually degrading words used to describe an
individual; and (5) sexual assault/violence.
Where there is probable cause to believe that the campus policies regulating sexual assault and/or harassment have been violated, the campus will
pursue strong disciplinary action. This includes suspension or expulsion from the University.

Needles/Sharps Disposal                                                                                                                                   Formatted: Justified
Housing urges those residents using needles or syringes for valid medical reasons to purchase EPA-approved Sharps Disposal containers for proper
disposal. Use those made specifically for bio-hazardous medically contaminated wastes like needles. Some halls have installed them in common
bathroom facilities. Do not throw used needles in household garbage

Pet Policy                                                                                                                                                Formatted: Justified
Possession, care, or harboring of all animals, except fish, is prohibited in University Housing or adjacent grounds. A fish is defined as a legless,
cold-blooded, aquatic vertebrate animal with gills, fins and scales. There is a 20-gallon size limit on fish tanks or aquariums. Visitors are not
exempted from this regulation.

Housing and Residence Life works closely with the “Aggie Cat Service” program on campus. This feral cat management program involves the
trapping, spay/neuter, vaccination and release of all feral cats on campus that are deemed unadoptable. This approach to feral cat management
ensures that cat colonies are healthy, low in number, and available to assist with campus rodent control. In support of a successful feral cat

                                                                          31
management program, residents are requested not to feed any feral cats. Residents interested in volunteering with this program should contact their
Pro Staff member for more information.

Potential health and sanitation problems dictate that pets of any kind, other than fish in an aquarium, are NOT ALLOWED.
Sight-and hearing-impaired students often have certified service assistant animals that live with them. However, written approval must be granted by
the Utah State University Disability Resource Center and/or Utah State University Counseling Center to house a service or companion animal.
Resident may obtain detailed information regarding the Utah State University Service Animal Policy from the Disability Resource Center.
 Residents should not provide food or shelter to any animal. All stray animals will be reported or released to Utah State University Police officers (7-
1939).

Violation of this policy will result in an automatic $50 fine and immediate removal of the animal by the resident. An additional $100 fine will be
assessed and eviction proceedings initiated if the animal has not been removed within the 3-day period. A notarized statement signed by the resident
must be turned into the Housing Office regarding the permanent relocation of the animal from our premises.

Possessing, discharging, or using any firearms, ammunition, explosives, firecrackers and fireworks, toxic chemicals, paintball guns, or any item that
has the appearance of a weapon or firearm or other potentially dangerous weapons are absolutely prohibited on or within all Housing property unless
you are authorized to do so. Items will be confiscated and resident fined $100. Possession and/or explosion of fireworks can be construed as a Class
C misdemeanor subject to additional fines up to $500. Firearms and ammunition may be stored only off-campus or in an arms storage cabinet
at the Utah State University Police Department, where access is available on a 24-hour daily basis.

Security/Renters Insurance                                                                                                                                     Formatted: Justified
It is the resident’s responsibility to keep their door(s) locked at all times to secure their room/apartment. Residents should carry their key with them

Care of Furnishings, Equipment, Premises
1. Residents are responsible for general care of the room/apartment and of all furniture and equipment provided inside or exterior to the                      Formatted: Heading 2, Justified
room/apartment.                                                                                                                                                Formatted: Font: 9 pt
                                                                               33
2. Initial inspection and inventory of the room/apartment and its furnishings must be made upon occupancy by completing the "Furnishings and Key
Inventory” (SSH) or the “Inspection Agreement of Acceptance" form (FSH). It is retained in the student's file, and will be the recorded basis for
determining damage, loss, or cleaning charges assessed during or at termination of residency.
3. Charges are usually assessed for labor and/or materials at a cost of $30 per hour. Any costs resulting from extra cleaning, repairs, or replacements
associated with damages, including normal wear and tear, may be assessed as determined.
4. Any breakage, damage, and need for general maintenance and repairs must be reported to the Housing Physical Facilities Office, 797-3117. The
University will make all repairs within a reasonable time. Resident will incur repair costs if damage is due to negligence, carelessness, or misuse by
self or visitors. Damage assessment does not necessarily constitute immediate replacement.
5. University carpets in Family Housing may be scheduled for cleaning by calling 797-3117. Requests for carpet cleaning more than once a year
will be charged. Requests will not be taken prior to vacating an apartment.
6. Billing for Damages: Individuals will be charged for defacing or vandalizing Housing and Food Services facilities or equipment. However, if the
individual(s) responsible for damage cannot be identified, or will not come forward, these unattributed and avoidable damage(s) to public or common
areas, the building exterior, or immediately adjacent grounds will be assessed and divided as a separate charge per resident. Damages resulting from
careless, willful, or malicious actions, including the consequences of food fights, horseplay, pranking, or indoor athletics, will be absorbed by the
responsible parties or collectively billed at termination of occupancy to residents of that Area. Because all members of the community are
responsible for their living environment, we bill all members equally. As a community member, it is your obligation to report any person(s)
responsible for damages(s) in your community to Housing staff. Each resident should exercise their influence in the community to prevent damages.
In each case, reasonable efforts will be made by Housing staff to determine actual responsibility. Non-involved residents should strongly encourage
those responsible to come forward and accept accountability.
7. Payments for damages must be received by the 1st day of the following month after the fee is assessed.
8. SSH: Furniture and equipment and pool tables in common areas, lounges and study areas cannot be removed from their original location.
Furniture may be rearranged but must be returned to original locations after use. Violations are subject to a minimum $50 relocation fee.
9. Only mini-refrigerator/freezers of 3 cubic feet or less (combined usage) or Micro Fridges® are allowed.

Personal storage space is extremely limited in each room/apartment/building. Absolutely nothing is to be stored in the furnace closet in each
apartment that has one. The door to this furnace closet must be unblocked and accessible to Housing Staff or emergency personal at all times. All         Formatted: Heading 2, Justified
stairs and stairwells must be kept clear at all times to provide completely clear exits. Furniture, garbage, boxes, baby strollers, newspapers, plants,   Formatted: Font: 9 pt
bicycles, children’s toys, etc., are especially hazardous and cannot be left in stairwells. Vehicles, including motorcycles and mopeds, cannot be
parked in stairwells or on patios at any time.

FSH: An outdoor, fenced storage compound in the Mobile Home Park is provided for residents at a nominal monthly fee. Upon termination of
occupancy, all articles must be removed from the compound, or they will be considered abandoned property, and removed. Anyone interested in
renting a space needs to contact the Housing and Food Services Administrative Office.

Abandoned Property                                                                                                                                        Formatted: Font: 9 pt, Italic
Items left in any public or common space (including stairwells) in or around a housing facility can be “red tagged” as a potential fire hazard, safety
risk, and/or unsightly obstruction. The owner will have 48 hours to relocate or remove the item(s). Otherwise, Housing staff will remove and              Formatted: Heading 2, Justified
impound the item(s), and consider the property abandoned. Any personal property abandoned in a vacated apartment or elsewhere within or on the            Formatted: Font: 9 pt
premises will be relocated to the Housing Warehouse for a period of 30 days. The unclaimed property will then be disposed of or donated to
charitable organizations. Relocation and/or storage costs will be assessed. Housing and Food Services will not be responsible for damage or loss of
any personal property left or abandoned on Housing premises.

regarding health and safety. Upon proper notice, the resident shall comply with all requests from Housing pertaining to the correction of health and
safety violations in or around the room/apartment/facilities, including services for pest control. If the resident refuses to comply, Housing reserves
the right to enter the premises, confiscate a prohibited item and relocate it to storage and initiate disciplinary action to correct the violation.

Cleanliness/Sanitation/Safety Regulations                                                                                                                     Formatted: Justified

8. Taping or hanging material from smoke detectors or fire extinguishers.
9. All electrical appliances and cords must meet UL (Underwriters Laboratory) safety standards. UL-approved power strips must be used when
more than two electrical items share an outlet. The USU Fire Marshal highly recommends purchasing extension cords manufactured by Fire Shield                Formatted: Font: 9 pt, Not Highlight
(available at WalMart for under $10) which senses damage caused by overload, overheating, pinching or aging and shuts off the power in 25/1000 of
a second if a dangerous condition is detected.                                                                                                               Formatted: Font: 9 pt
10. Grilling on BBQs within 10 feetd of any housing building. If your grill uses propane the tank must be 5 gallons/20 pounds or less or it cannot be
stored on your porch.

Fire drills or fire safety programs are conducted by the University Fire Marshal and Residence Life staff to ensure that residents are familiar with
emergency evacuation procedures and general fire safety. When requested or mandated, all occupants must immediately evacuate a residence hall.
Interfering with or noncompliance will result in disciplinary action, including a $100 fine. Residents are also required by the Fire Marshal to keep
hallways, stairwells, and balconies clear of obstructions at all times, to facilitate proper access and egress.

Fire Extinguisher                                                                                                                                            Formatted: Font: 9 pt
A fire extinguisher is located in all apartments on the kitchen wall. In traditional housing the extinguisher is located in the hallways on each floor. If
the extinguisher is discharged while putting out a fire, promptly notify the PF Office. If it occurs after-hours or on weekends, immediately notify the      Formatted: Font: 9 pt
USU Police at 7-1939. The extinguisher will be replaced immediately at no cost. Extinguisher must not be rehung or relocated after discharge.                Formatted: Font: 9 pt

Fire extinguishers or other equipment can only be discharged in an actual fire emergency. Starting fires, tampering with or misuse of fire                   Formatted: Justified
safety equipment, or falsely reporting a fire may result in criminal prosecution.                                                                            Formatted: Font: 9 pt

Fire extinguishers are checked by the University Fire Marshal at least annually. If an extinguisher is found to be empty, tampered with, relocated, or
missing, the student apartment will be charged $50 for recharging and/or replacement. Periodically inspect the fire extinguisher gauge to be certain
it is properly charged. If the needle indicates that it is undercharged or overcharged, call the PF Office immediately for replacement.

FSH: The RA's will demonstrate how to use the fire extinguisher during a New Resident Orientation held as needed.

Smoke Detectors                                                                                                                                              Formatted: Justified
Smoke detectors are located in all Housing facilities. When the detector is activated, it will make a loud, piercing sound. When the detector beeps
intermittently, the batteries need to be replaced. It is the resident's responsibility to report to Housing Physical Facilities whenever the smoke           Formatted: Font: 9 pt
detector is inoperable or batteries need to be replaced.                                                                                                     Formatted: Font: 9 pt

Excessive amounts of smoke from cooking, or steam from the bathroom, may activate a smoke detector. If this occurs, simply ventilate the                     Formatted: Font: 9 pt
room/apartment by opening the doors and windows and turning the fan on. The detector will automatically reset once the reason for triggering the             Formatted: Font: 9 pt
detector has been removed or eliminated. . If your smoke detector is really sensitive notify Physical Facilities.

Any smoke detector problems after 4:30 or on weekends can be directed to our On-Call Maintenance staff, and will be handled as quickly as
possible. Calls can also be left after-hours on the dispatch voice mail at Physical Facilities and will be handled the next morning. Please leave your
name, apartment number, time of call, and current problem with the detector.

If Housing staff determine that the smoke detector and /or battery has been removed, tampered with, or is inoperable and has not been reported, the
student will be charged $75. If there is a second violation, the student will be charged $100 and appropriate sanctions imposed.

Fire Sprinklers                                                                                                                                              Formatted: Justified
Many Housing buildings have recently been retrofitted with new fire sprinklers. It is critical that residents not tamper with the sprinkler systems,
especially the sprinkler heads. The water in the sprinkler systems is under tremendous pressure and a damaged sprinkler head or pipe can lead to
significant damage to both the building and resident’s property. The resident will be responsible for all damages caused to Housing Facilities by
breaking/or tampering with a sprinkler head. Housing is not responsible for any damage or losses that occur because of sprinklers being activated for
any reason. Housing strongly recommends residents seek insurance for their personal property (see pg. 27).

When the Building Alarm Sounds In Case of Fire                                                                                                               Formatted: Font: 9 pt, Bold
Before a fire:
Know the escape route and meeting location your RA has designated for your area. A smoke detector can wake you, but only an escape plan can                  Formatted: Justified
save you. All residents should recognize the alarm signal and how to respond. In the event that you hear a neighbor's smoke detector ringing for an          Formatted: Font: 9 pt
extended period of time, contact the fire department first and the Housing Physical Facilities Office next, or after hours On-Call Maintenance.
If a fire occurs:                                                                                                                                            Formatted: Justified
Grab your keys (if possible) and walk to the nearest exit. Most smoke and dangerous gases rise, so keep your body low and move quickly. If
necessary, crawl so you do not breathe the smoke.
If you suspect a fire, touch the door or handle with the back of your hand before opening it, with your hand covered for protection. Intense heat,
deadly smoke, or gas may be on the other side. If it is not hot, open it cautiously a few inches to check the other side for heat, smoke, or flames.
Keep your body out of the opening doorway and be ready to slam it shut if any heat or smoke appears.
Do not waste time getting dressed or gathering valuables. Get out of the building immediately.                                                               Formatted: Justified
Call the Fire Department from OUTSIDE the building. Dial 911 or call the University Police Department, and report the location of the fire.
Stay on the telephone until instructed to hang up. Alert other room/apartment occupants, if possible.                                                        Formatted: Font: 9 pt

Carbon Monoxide
Carbon Monoxide (CO) is a colorless, odorless, poisonous gas produced by burning fuels such as natural gas, propane, kerosene, wood or charcoal              Formatted: Font: 9 pt
with an inadequate air supply. When inhaled, CO interferes with the normal supply of oxygen to body tissues. High concentrations of CO over long             Formatted: Font: 9 pt
                                                                           36
periods of time can cause serious side effects, and even death. Symptoms of CO exposure include headaches, nausea, dizziness and weakness,
breathing problems, and blueness around the lips or eyelids. If you have these signs and symptoms, immediately leave the area and find a source of
fresh air.

Carbon monoxide can occur when gas kitchen stoves and grills are used for home heating. It can be produced by blocked chimneys and vents, or
faulty and improperly installed gas appliances. Carbon monoxide can also collect when fuel-powered equipment is used in the home without proper
ventilation.

Personal CO detectors are available on the retail market. However, Housing has neither tested them nor endorses any particular brand. Residents
who do purchase their own detectors are advised to invest in good quality units which are Underwriter's Laboratory (UL) approved, and to use and
service these detectors in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations. If you suspect a CO problem, call PF Office as soon as possible.

Smoking                                                                                                                                                    Formatted: Font: 9 pt
The "Utah Indoor Clean Air Act" (1995) states: "a person may not smoke in a building, or portion of a building that is owned, leased, or occupied by
the state or any state agency." USU is a state-owned agency; therefore, all Housing property is subject to this act. Housing can levy fines in the         Formatted: Font: 9 pt
amount of $25 for failure to comply, and/or seek eviction.                                                                                                 Formatted: Font: 9 pt

Smoking outside must take place a minimum of twenty-five (25) feet away from any building entrance, exit, air-intake, and windows that can be              Formatted: Font: 9 pt
opened. Used cigarettes must be properly disposed of and not left on the grounds. Improper disposal is considered littering and could result in a fine     Formatted: Justified
of $299.

The ASUSU Student Code prohibits possession, consumption, sale, distribution, manufacture, or storage of any alcoholic beverage (including beer)
on University property, both single and family housing facilities. Housing regulations further prohibit possession or storage of full or empty alcoholic   Formatted: Font: 9 pt
beverage, bottles/containers/receptacles, as well as brewing kits and neon advertising materials. These prohibitions apply equally to all                  Formatted: Font: 9 pt

Possession and/or use of any controlled substance without a valid prescription is illegal. Sale, manufacture, and/or distribution of all controlled        Formatted: Font: 9 pt
substances are illegal as defined by United States and State of Utah laws. Alcohol and drug violations are subject to investigation and/or prosecution
by University, local, and/or other law enforcement authorities. Residents are responsible for their own behavior and that of their guests. All alcohol
and drug incidents will be documented by Housing staff, with copies placed in the resident’s file. Possession of alcohol or drugs, or any violation of
University or Housing policy while under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or intoxicants, constitutes an alcohol/drug violation. Residents choosing to
violate these policies must accept the consequences for their actions. The presence of prohibited items can be construed as evidence of use,
consumption, and/or trafficking, or at least an aggravating factor connected with illegal activity. Consumption of alcohol on-campus at Utah State
University is strictly prohibited. No first-offense warning will be given. Housing will enforce a zero-tolerance policy concerning consumption of
alcohol by minors, as well as all illegal drug use.

NOTE: Under recent revision of FERPA, the University may elect to contact the parents of students under 21 involved in alcohol and/or
drug violations.

1. Residents are responsible for general care of the room/apartment and of all furniture and equipment provided inside or exterior to the
room/apartment.
2. Initial inspection and inventory of the room/apartment and its furnishings must be made upon occupancy by completing the "Furnishings and Key
Inventory” (SSH) or the “Inspection Agreement of Acceptance" form (FSH). It is retained in the student's file, and will be the recorded basis for
determining damage, loss, or cleaning charges assessed during or at termination of residency.
3. Charges are usually assessed for labor and/or materials at a cost of $30 per hour. Any costs resulting from extra cleaning, repairs, or replacements
associated with damages, including normal wear and tear, may be assessed as determined.
4. Any breakage, damage, and need for general maintenance and repairs must be reported to the ResidentialHousing Physical Facilities Office, 797-
3117. The University will make all repairs within a reasonable time. Resident will incur repair costs if damage is due to negligence, carelessness, or
misuse by self or visitors. Damage assessment does not necessarily constitute immediate replacement.

will be charged. Requests will not be taken prior to vacating an apartment.
6. Billing for Damages: Individuals will be charged for defacing or vandalizing Housing and Food Services facilities or equipment. However, if the
individual(s) responsible for damage cannot be identified, or will not come forward, these unattributed and avoidable damage(s) to public or common
areas, the building exterior, or immediately adjacent grounds will be assessed and divided as a separate charge per resident. Damages resulting from
careless, willful, or malicious actions, including the consequences of food fights, horseplay, pranking, or indoor athletics, will be absorbed by the
responsible parties or collectively billed at termination of occupancy to residents of that Area. Because all members of the community are
responsible for their living environment, we bill all members equally. As a community member, it is your obligation to report any person(s)
responsible for damages(s) in your community to Housing staff. Each resident should exercise their influence in the community to prevent damages.
In each case, reasonable efforts will be made by Housing staff to determine actual responsibility. Non-involved residents should strongly encourage       Formatted: Highlight
those responsible to come forward and accept accountability.

The resident must notify the Housing ResidentialPhysical Facilities Office if there is an insect problem. Exterminator service will be scheduled with
a local provider, and is usuusuallally available at no charge to residents. However, if a resident’s lack of cleanliness is a contributing factorcan be      Formatted: Font: 9 pt
proven as the source of an infestation, the resident could be billed for their own and neighbors’ extermination costs. If it is determined that there is a   Formatted: Font: 9 pt
major problem, all apartments in a localized area will be sprayed and treated together. Residents cannot opt out of spraying once it is determined
necessary. Residents should remove themselves from the sprayed area for several hours afterward as a routine safety precaution.

Suggestions for Residents                                                                                                                                    Formatted: Justified
Many insect problems can be addressed by practicing good housekeeping techniques and occasionally doing additional spraying to reduce and
control bugs and insects. The following suggestions are helpful:
1. Purchase a trash can with a tight-fitting cover and use plastic liners.
2. Do not leave dirty dishes or food on countertops or in sinks overnight. This is when insects feed.
3. Store open food containers (cereal boxes, etc.) in plastic bags, containers, or in the refrigerator.
4. Do not use contact paper in cabinets. Insects feed on the sticky backing.
5. Do not let paper bags or newspapers accumulate. Insects nest in these areas.
6. Keep all floors clean and free of food crumbs.
7. Buy professional strength insect spray and apply to the following areas where moisture may appear: behind the stove and refrigerator; the top and
bottom edge of all hollow doors; in closets; and under sinks or around heating and plumbing pipes protruding from walls. These sprays are very
effective when used properly and safely. Read and follow all label directions carefully and use reasonable caution when applying these sprays
to avoid contact with skin or food. Avoid inhaling these vapors in enclosed areas.
8. Do not store damp rags or sponges in dark closets. Store all brooms and mops with the handle down.
9. Do not allow grease to build up on stovetops, burners, or in the oven.
10. Do not leave dirty clothes on closet floors or in corners.
11. Once every three months, move all major appliances-refrigerator, stove, washing machine-and thoroughly wash the floor and wall behind them.
Spray before replacing appliances.
12. Note any physical conditions in the building that might be causing insect problems. Call the Housing Residential Physical Facilities Office if           Formatted: Font: 9 pt
your apartment has previously been sprayed and insect problems still persist.

Box Elder Bugs                                                                                                                                               Formatted: Justified
Box Elder Bugs are considered an abundant nuisance pest in Utah. Adult Box Elder bugs winter in protected indoor sites. They emerge on warm
winter days, returning to shelter as temperatures drop at the end of the day. They emerge in mid-spring to lay eggs and complete their life cycle.
Chemical control is of questionable value because Box Elder bugs are quite resistant to most insecticides. The bugs are not feeding indoors, and
household formulations are less effective than the stronger pesticides used outdoors. Even those bugs that can be killed are soon replaced by the
numerous flying adults moving in or emerging from sheltered areas. Unfortunately, Box Elder bugs are here to stay and must be tolerated. Applied
force may be the only viable means of extermination, albeit messy.

Mice                                                                                                                                                         Formatted: Justified

Abandoned Property                                                                                                                                           Formatted: Justified
Items left in any public or common space (including stairwells) in or around a housing facility can be “red tagged” as a potential fire hazard, safety
risk, and/or unsightly obstruction. The owner will have 48 hours to relocate or remove the item(s). Otherwise, Housing staff will remove and
impound the item(s), and consider the property abandoned. Any personal property abandoned in a vacated apartment or elsewhere within or on the
premises will be relocated to the Housing Warehouse for a period of 30 days. The unclaimed property will then be disposed of or donated to
charitable organizations. Relocation and/or storage costs will be assessed. Housing and DiningFood Services will not be responsible for damage or

Air Conditioners
Window mount air conditioners are not permitted to be attached to the building in any resident apartment due to the danger of units falling out of

purchase/use a portable air conditioner or swamp cooler. These units may be identified in retail stores as “apartment air conditioners”. Typical the
units consist of an air conditioner that is on wheels with an air hose and bracket that exhaust heat out a window without removing the window screen.
Residents can also purchase/use a window-mount style air conditioner, but only under the following conditions: window screen must be kept in
place and not removed. Unit must be free-standing and in no way attached to the building. It is up to the resident to devise a safe way of
accomplishing this. For any questions, please contact HousingResidential Physical Facilities at 7-3117.

“Flex” money may be carried forward from Fall to Spring Semester.      All surplus flex money at the end of Spring Semester will be forfeited.

Your student ID card is used to access meals and may be used only by the resident to whom it is issued. A resident must present a valid student ID
card to the checker each time they use a Food Service operation. Lack of a valid student ID necessitates making other arrangements to pay, i.e.,
entering as the guest of another student, or paying the full cash price. If a resident’s account becomes delinquent, the Food Services Office reserves
the right to place an administrative hold on the use of meal plan. A resident who voluntarily transfers from a traditional hall to an apartment
accommodation is required to keep their dining plan for the balance of the academic year. All Meal Plans can be purchased through the
Housing and Food Services Office.

Aggie Value Meal Plan Options                                                                                                                             Formatted: Justified
Aggie Value Meal plans allow you to purchase 50, 75, 100, 150, or 200 meals in advance and save $200 or more per semester. The more meals you
purchase, the more you save. A variety of value meal plan options are available at eight food service dining locations. Aggie Value Meal Plan
options will be identified by the meal plan logo in each venue with an “express card” located at the venue to identify a value meal to the cashier. Any
surplus meals at the end of each semester will be forfeited. Applications are available at the Housing and Food Services Administrative Office or
online at www.foodservices.usu.edu. Residents in Mountain View, Valley View and Richards Hall may purchase Aggie Value Meal Plans in
addition to their resident meal plan.

DISCIPLINARY ACTION AND SANCTIONS                                                                                                                         Formatted: Font: 9 pt

The Residence Life staff is primarily responsible for disciplinary actions undertaken within their respective Areas concerning violations of University   Formatted: Justified
and/or Housing rules and regulations. Each resident is expected to comply or cooperate with any authorized University official as requested, acting       Formatted: Font: 9 pt
in the performance of their duties and within the scope of their authority. Housing staff represents the University and are considered its agents
and officials, with authority commensurate and necessary to accomplish a requested task or action. Failure to comply with verbal and/or                   Formatted: Font: 9 pt
written instructions issued by Housing staff, or impeding their performance or duties, will be deemed a violation and could result in a $100 fine.        Formatted: Font: 9 pt
Such behavior can result in referral to higher-level campus administrators who have the authority to sanction the individual to University probation,
                                                                                                                                                          Formatted: Font: 9 pt
or suspend any violator from the University, according to the University Student Code. The University reserves the right to remove any resident
or their guest from Housing when deemed necessary for the best interest of the University, resident, or community. Parent(s)/legal                        Formatted: Font: 9 pt
guardian(s) can be notified of action(s) being taken for those under 21 years of age.
                                                                                                                                                          Formatted: Font: 9 pt
A resident evicted from the Housing system for disciplinary reasons will be charged the remaining rent for the academic year and the full costs of all    Formatted: Font: 9 pt
vandalism or damages incurred. Eviction will result in forfeiture of security deposit and loss of Housing contractual privileges for at least a
year.

Residence Life staff can impose any sanction they deem necessary in no specific order. Failure to comply with stated or written directions, or
violations of contractual or Handbook obligations as stated herein, can each result in various discretionary staff responses. The range of disciplinary
sanctions available singularly or in combination to Residence Life staff include, but are not limited to:
1. VERBAL WARNING. A violation occurred, but discussion resolved the issue.
2. WRITTEN WARNING. A written letter from Housing informing the resident of their unacceptable actions, as well as making them aware of the
possible consequences should they repeat the violation.
3. LETTER OF APOLOGY. To be delivered to the injured party after review by Housing staff.
4. COMMUNITY SERVICE PROJECTS. Projects of a remedial or educational nature may be assigned. These may include custodial/maintenance
assignments, constructive projects, or research assignments. All projects are designed to give the resident a better understanding of his/her behavior,
and are related to the violation or serve to correct the result of the violation. They must be completed by a deadline set and agreed upon by the
Housing staff and the resident.
5. FINES. Published fines or fees may be imposed, as established and printed in this Handbook and/or other Housing documents or flyers.
6. RESTITUTION. Monetary compensation paid for damages to Housing property or individual property.
7. REQUIRED COUNSELING. Referral to the Counseling Center, Student Wellness Center, Affirmative Action Office, or other University
professional staff and facilities as determined. Resident will sign a confidentiality waiver granting permission for Residence Life staff to discreetly
discuss issues and share information pertaining to the resident with the professional being seen.
8. RESTRICTION FROM DESIGNATED AREAS AND/OR FACILITIES. Residents found in violation of any established Housing policy or
found vandalizing or abusing any facilities or equipment may be restricted from these areas, or prohibited from the use of the facility or equipment.
9. DISCIPLINARY TRANSFER. A staff recommendation for transfer of an unruly resident to another room/apartment, floor, or building will be
implemented only upon approval from the Assistant Director for Residence Life. A resident may be removed from Housing for an interim period,
pending resolution of a particular situation. All associated relocation costs are at his/her expense.
10. PROBATION. May be assessed by Housing and Food Services for a specified period of time. Sanction may encompass a particular area or be
applied within the Housing system. Resident is also informed that another violation may result in eviction.
11. NON-RENEWAL OF CONTRACT. Resident will not be allowed to sign a contract for the next academic year contract period, or a student may
be released from an existing signed contract.
12. EVICTION. Any staff recommendation for eviction will be referred to the Assistant Director for Residence Life. A resident may not avoid a
Notice to Quit Premises by not accepting the notice. The notice may by lawfully delivered or served in person, attached to the door, or mailed. The
resident then has 72 hours to comply with the notice and to properly check out, unless otherwise implied. Financial penalties are instituted for all
evictions.
13. PARENTAL NOTIFICATION. For minor students (less than 21 years old) the University reserves the right to inform his/her parents/guardians
of pending disciplinary charges, sanctions, or decisions arising from an alcohol, drug, or other policy violation.

Despite our every attempt to seemingly have a policy for most situations, we may have missed one or two. If common sense tells you that your
possible behavior or proposed activity might be contrary to Housing wishes and/or policy, err on the side of common sense and refrain from doing it.
