Residence Community Standards

The primary objective of all University of Alberta Residences is to support the successful pursuit of academic studies. Living in residence provides many personal and social benefits; correspondingly, all Residents are jointly responsible for a comfortable, safe, and secure living environment conductive to academic study and learning.

In February, 2011, the Board of Governors approved a new set of Residence Community Standards to be applied in all University of Alberta Residences. The Community Standards will use a restorative justice approach and will be implemented on September 1, 2011.

On October 7, 2013, The GFC Executive Committee approved under delegated authority from General Faculties Council, proposed changes to the existing Residence Community Standards Policy, as submitted by the Offices of Residence Services and Student Conduct and Accountability (SCA), to take effect upon final approval.
