Residence Community Handbook

The Residence Community Handbook contains the rules and regulations for living in residence at the University of Lethbridge. The handbook is part of the Single Student Housing License Agreement and by signing the agreement a student also agrees to live by these rules and regulations.

Adjudication Process

Residence Life Policy Violations

Residents will be held accountable for violations of Residence Life policies. By virtue of their resident status, residents face Housing Services administrative action.

At the same time, by virtue of their University of Lethbridge student status, residents may also be subject to University disciplinary sanctions through other University channels.

Resolution Process

Residents involved in incidents in Student Housing generally:

Section B

First time Sanctions

Will normally result in one or a combination of the following actions:

See Adjudication Process

  • Resident is informed that his or her behavior did or did not constitute a minor violation of Student Housing rules.
  • Further violations may result in more serious sanctions.

Community Service Hours

Section A

Standard Sanctions

Standard sanction for violation of policies in Section A is immediate termination of the Single Student Housing License Agreement.

When significant mitigating or aggravating circumstances occur, they will be considered and, in some cases, may affect the sanction imposed.

See Adjudication Process.

NOTE: Termination of the agreement does not release the student from payment of his or her financial obligations.

Student Conduct

Student Conduct and Appeals Policy

This section of the Residence Community Handbook is to be used in conjunction with the Student Conduct and Appeals policy as published in the University Calendar.

Residents charged with violating policies in Section A may be found responsible for violating that policy, and/or the corresponding policy in Section B, based on the severity of the behavior.
