Room Searches

The University reserves the right to search both a residence hall room/apartment and a resident's possessions in the room/apartment. A student and/or parent or legal guardian already has consented to this by signing a Residence Life contract. Searches are conducted only when there is a reasonable suspicion that a criminal offense has occurred, is in progress or is about to occur. Also, a search can be conducted if the Code of Student Conduct has been violated, is being violated or is about to be violated.

Authority

Searches of residence hall rooms may be conducted by the Office of Public Safety when there is evidence of imminent danger of harm to a person or property. All other searches must be approved in advance by the dean of students or designee and are conducted by Residence Life in conjunction with Public Safety.
