Sanctions & Definitions
Consequences, or “sanctions,” are assigned when you are found responsible for violating a policy, contractual obligation, or law. Sanctions are assigned based on your behavior, and intended to help you learn how your behavior affected the residential community. The sanctions assigned for subsequent violation builds upon those assigned previously. If found responsible, your sanctions may include one or several of the following:
A Note on Overdue Sanctions:
Students are given a set amount of time to complete their sanctions. Should a student forget or choose to not complete their sanctions, an email will be sent to the student notifying them that their sanction(s) is/are overdue and a hold will be placed on the student’s account. This means that the student will not have access to register for classes, or to obtain transcripts or apply for future housing until they turn in the verification for their completed overdue sanctions. If after a one-week grace period of a hold being placed on the student’s account, they still have not turned in their overdue sanction paperwork, a non-refundable overdue sanction fee of $75 will be assessed to the student’s bursar account. Regardless of whether or not the overdue fee is assessed, it is expected that the student completes their sanctions in a timely manner.
Judicial Process Statuses
Serves as a notice from Housing & Residential Life regarding a potential violation of a policy that may have taken place. This notice is sent to inform students more directly of our policies and to encourage them to avoid participating the documented behavior above in the future. Further violations of Housing & Residential Life's Policies and Procedures may initiate our conduct process, which involves attending an administrative meeting to discuss the incident and specific consequences related to the violation if you are found responsible. Please make sure you are aware of all Housing & Residential Life and University policies.
Serves as a formal warning from Housing & Residential Life against violating the policies and procedures. The warning status continues through the end of the ACADEMIC year. Please make sure you are aware of all Housing & Residential Life and University policies. If you are found responsible for future policy violation(s), the details of this incident will be considered in any future sanctioning for the duration of your time living on campus. If you have questions about any policy, please ask your RA or your Community Director.
License Agreement Probation means that Housing & Residential Life is giving you formal notice that your involvement in this incident is not acceptable. License Agreement Probationary status continues through the end of the ACADEMIC year. However, Housing & Residential Life reserves the right to extend the period of your probation. If you are found responsible for violating other policies in the future, it could lead to your eviction from the residence halls. If you have questions about any policy, please ask your RA or your Community Director.
Being placed on Deferred License Agreement Cancellation status means if you are found responsible for violating ANY community standard you will be evicted from the residence halls. Deferred License Agreement Cancellation status continues through the end of the ACADEMIC year. This constitutes your last chance to remain living in the residence halls. As a reminder, if you are evicted you will remain financially responsible for your housing contract for the duration of semester. If you have questions about any policy, please ask your RA or your Community Director.
The University may terminate your Housing License Agreement if you do not abide by the Policies & Procedures for Hall Living or University rules. If you are evicted, you will be required to move out of the residence hall within a given time after being notified of your eviction. Should you be involved in any other policy violation(s) or be disruptive in any way prior to your leaving the building, you will be required to leave immediately.
NOTE: If you are removed or evicted from a residence for conduct reasons, you will be charged rent based on the dates of your occupancy (pro-rated rent), plus you will be charged 65% of the remaining academic year rent or $2,500, whichever is less. This applies regardless of whether or not you continue enrollment at the University. If you need assistance finding a place to live, there are resources available through Off Campus Housing Services, located in El Portal. The phone number is 621-5859 or you can visit their website at offcampus.arizona.edu. In cases of eviction from any residence at any time, you will not be eligible to live in or visit in the future any residence owned and/or managed by the University. You may be cited for trespassing by UAPD.
Incidents that can result in automatic eviction from a residence hall include, but are not limited to those found on this page.
