Rules for Residents

It is your responsibility to make yourself aware of and abide by the Housing Regulations.

Our mission is to create safe, supportive, and inclusive living-learning communities that engage residents in the fostering of their academic success, personal growth, leadership development, and social responsibility.

In support of the Residential Life mission, standards of behavior have been established to promote cooperation, respect and orderliness within the UCLA On-Campus Housing community. These standards of behavior apply to all On-Campus Housing residents, community members, and guests while in the On-Campus Housing community and surrounding property, or while participating in Residential Life sponsored activities.

When you apply to live in On-Campus Housing you are voluntarily choosing to be a member of this community and are bound by the rights and responsibilities of this membership. It is your responsibility to make yourself aware of and abide by the On-Campus Housing regulations. These regulations have been developed to create and maintain safe, supportive, and inclusive living-learning communities that engage residents in order to foster their academic success, personal growth and responsible citizenship.

Residents are considered to be maturing adults, capable of making their own decisions, as well as accepting the consequences for those decisions. The conduct process has been established to respond to incidents involving inappropriate behavior within our community. This process provides educational opportunities which encourage students to evaluate their own actions, consider their own decision making, and acquire new skills to improve their choices in the future.

In addition, UCLA students assume privileges and responsibilities upon admission to UCLA and cannot use ignorance of these policies as a justification for violating any community standards. All students are expected to make themselves aware of and comply with the law, and all University policies and regulations. For further information, please refer to the UCLA Student Conduct Code.

If you have questions regarding the standards of behavior for the On-Campus Housing community please contact a Resident Assistant, a Resident Director, the Residential Life Student Conduct Coordinator or review the information in the following links:
