Part 4. Administrative Actions

4a. Residential Administrative Relocation and Removal

In addition to the Suspension or Termination of Occupancy detailed in the Terms and Conditions, OSL provides the following supplement as part of the Residential Policies:

OSL reserves the right to relocate students to a different University housing assignment or remove them from University housing when issues of safety or maintenance are present, for issues of student conduct/discipline, or for significant and detrimental impact on the community.

Decisions to relocate a student(s), temporarily or permanently, for safety or maintenance issues will be determined by an Assistant or Associate Director of Student Living or the Student Living central office director on-call, in consultation with other University personnel, as appropriate, based upon the issue present. Relocations made for safety/maintenance issues may not be appealed.

Temporary Relocation within Housing

Decisions to immediately relocate a student(s) temporarily for behavioral, student conduct, and/or community impact issues will be made by the Assistant or Associate Director of the area, or the central office director on-call. Any temporary relocation enacted under “Residential Administrative Relocation and Removal” will be in effect pending the outcome of the appropriate student conduct process (e.g., resolution through OSL or Community Standards).

Decisions to immediately relocate a student(s) permanently to different University housing for behavioral, student conduct, and/or community impact issues will be made by the Assistant Director of the area, in consultation with the Sr. Director or his/her designee. Issues that may result in permanent relocation include, but are not limited to, repeated violations of residential policies, continual disruption of the residential community, serious policy violation that poses a safety concern to the student(s) or community. Any permanent relocations enacted under “Residential Administrative Relocation and Removal” may occur once a final outcome is reached through the appropriate student conduct process.

Decisions resulting in temporary or permanent relocation to different University housing may be appealed to the Sr. Director of Student Living. The appeal must be made in writing and received in Student Living (111 Waverly Avenue, Suite 200) within three (3) business days of a student’s receipt of the relocation letter.

Temporary Removal from Housing

Decisions to remove a student from residential housing for behavioral or student conduct issues will be made by the Sr. Director of Student Living, or his/her designee. Situations that may result in permanent relocation include, but are not limited to, continued policy violations following a permanent relocation or policy violation that threatens the safety of a specific individual or the residential community.

Decisions to remove a student from residential housing may be appealed to the Vice President for the Student Experience and Dean of Students, or designee. The appeal must be made in writing and received in in the Dean of Students Office within three (3) business days of the student’s receipt of the removal letter.  The interim removal remains in effect during the appeal process. The decision of the Vice President/Dean of Students is final.

4b. Temporary No Contact Orders

Consistent with the procedures outlined in the Student Conduct System Handbook, Student Living may issue Temporary No Contact Orders as a directive to prohibit communication to, or among, designated students when there is reason to believe that continued contact is detrimental to their safety and security, or to prevent future negative interactions between the students.
