Housing and Residential Life Policies

At UC San Diego, we believe you will find living on campus is an integral part of your education. As a result of your community living experience, we hope that you will develop a concern and respect for others; make responsible choices and decisions about a lifestyle which suits you best; share your academic, social, and cultural experience with other students; and learn to live peacefully in close quarters with a diverse group of people. We encourage you to work toward developing a positive involvement in your community, based on your rights and responsibilities as a resident living on campus.

Please be aware that as part of your housing contract, everyone who chooses to live in our residential communities must abide by the rules and regulations of UCSD, including, but not limited to, the UCSD Student Conduct Code (http://studentconduct.ucsd.edu), the UCSD RESNET Acceptable Use Policy (http://resnet.ucsd.edu/policies.shtml), all applicable local, state, and federal laws, and the Housing and Residential Life policies outlined below. All of these guidelines are here to establish a safe and secure living environment and to support your success as a UCSD student. Any student who anticipates or observes a potential violation of policy is expected to immediately remove themselves from the environment in which the violation may occur. One's presence during any violation of University or Housing policy ultimately condones, supports, and/or encourages the behavior or potential violation of policy. 

It is important to realize that students living in a group environment affect each other's lives in many ways.  We strongly believe that one's actions demonstrate one's commitment to respecting differences. In addition, we will not accept ignorance, humor, anger, alcohol or substance abuse as an excuse, reason, or rationale for behavior. Certain shared responsibilities such as mutual cooperation, inclusion, and respect are integral to any successful group living situation. It also means accepting personal responsibility for how your everyday actions affect others living with you as roommates and neighbors. Establishing a positive and supportive residential environment means each individual must make occasional adjustments in personal habits, attitudes, and beliefs. Successful on-campus living, whether in the residence halls or apartments, means exercising your rights while recognizing your responsibilities in respecting the equally legitimate rights of the other members in your community.


In accordance with the University of California San Diego (UCSD) Single Undergraduate Residential Housing Contract, every UCSD student who lives in or enters our residential communities must abide by the rules and regulations of UCSD, including, but not limited to the University of California San Diego (UCSD) Student Conduct Code (http://www.ucsd.edu/current-students/_organizations/student-conduct/regulations/22.00.html), the UCSD RESNET Acceptable Use Policy (http://resnet.ucsd.edu/policies.shtml), all applicable local, state, and federal laws, and the Housing and Residential Life policies contained herein. Violations of the rules and regulations may become the basis for a referral to the student conduct process. Additionally, breach of any term/provision of the Single Undergraduate Residential Housing Contract may result in contract cancellation prior to move-in or termination of the contract after move-in.

In all circumstances, respect for the rights of other residents will be considered the highest priority

Community living requires that each resident be aware of how his/her behavior or actions will affect other residents. The resident must not disturb, annoy, harass nor interfere with residents and staff and their academic and/or peaceful uses of the Revelle residential facilities and adjoining areas. At all times, residents and their guests are required to abide by all University and Revelle Residence Life regulations regarding student conduct, as well as applicable federal, state, and local laws.

Violation of any Revelle Residence Life policy or regulation may be subject to disciplinary sanctions, legal action, and/or fines. It is the resident's responsibility to become aware of all announced or posted deadlines, requirements, potential fines, or other general information distributed throughout the Revelle residential facilities by Revelle Residence Life Staff. 

Revelle Residence Life facilities include Argo Hall, Atlantis Hall, Beagle Hall, Blake Hall, Challenger Hall, Discovery Hall, Galathea Hall, Meteor Hall; The Keeling Apartments: Buildings One, Two and Three; 64 Degrees, Revelle Plaza, Revelle Residence Life Office, the College Center, and the Commuter Lounge.

Revelle Residence Life strongly believes that one's actions demonstrate one's commitment to respecting differences. Everyone who chooses to live in or visit Revelle Residence Life facilities must understand that we will not tolerate bigotry, threats, intimidation, violence, or other forms of abuse against any member of our community on the basis of (including but not limited to) age, gender, race, religion, ethnicity, national origin, or sexual orientation. In addition, we will not accept ignorance, humor, anger, alcohol or substance abuse as an excuse, reason, or rationale for such behavior. The disciplinary action that will follow such behavior may include, but is not limited to, termination of the housing contract, immediate removal from the residence halls and/or apartments, exclusion from activities, and/or legal prosecution.
