Student Handbook

Privacy, Searches & Right of Re-entry

The college respects the privacy of the student but reserves the right to re-enter and take possession of the accommodations upon breach of the terms of the housing agreement. Authorized college personnel may enter the accommodations with notice during reasonable hours to provide efficient services, repairs, improvements or for general inspection. Authorized college personnel may enter the accommodations without notice when necessary for the safety of the student or other occupants of college accommodations, for the purpose of emergency services or safety inspections or when there is reason to believe that the terms and conditions of the housing agreement are being violated.

Search of Student Rooms

Any search of a student room (as distinguished from a safety inspection) will be carried out only with reasonable cause and with explicit authorization of the Vice President for Student Life or some other senior administrative officer. Should such a search be necessary, an attempt will be made to have the resident present at the time of the search. If the resident is not present, he/she will be informed of the action as soon as possible following the search.

Entry of Student Rooms

Any entry into a student room (as distinguished from a safety inspection) will be carried out only with reasonable cause and with explicit authorization of the Administrator on Duty (AOD). Should such an entry be necessary, an attempt will be made to have the resident present at the time of entry. If the resident is not present, he/she will be informed of the entry as soon as possible following the entry.
