Residence Hall Policies
Please review the condensed versions of several highlighted policies from the Office of Residence Life as they are written for the 2016-2017 academic year. Please be aware that policies may change for the 2017-2018 academic year.
Residents of legal drinking age (age 21 and older) are permitted to consume alcohol in designated areas only. Alcohol will not be permitted beyond the assigned areas. The amount of alcohol allowed for personal consumption in a 24-hour period should not exceed one six-pack of beer cans or 1-liter of wine or one four-pack of wine coolers. No hard alcohol, beer kegs or beer balls are allowed. Liquor bottles, full or empty, are not allowed in the residence hall. In addition, there will be no binge drinking allowed on campus and beer pong tables will be confiscated if discovered. No student under the age of 21 should have full or empty beer or wine bottles or cans in his or her room or in his or her possession. No student over the age of 21 should have more than 12 empty beer cans or one wine bottle in his or her room.
Authorized Search of Residential Facilities
The Office of Residence Life and/or Officers of Campus Safety have the right to search any and all residential facilities with just cause. If a suspected violation of the Student Code of Conduct is taking place, Campus Safety and Residence Life Staff have the right to enter the room immediately without warning.
For all breaks, Trinity and St. Joseph Halls close. These breaks include Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Spring Break. Except for the period between December 22nd and January 2nd, the residential apartments remain open through all breaks.
Drug Free School Program
The Higher Education Amendment of the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act of 1989 require that all institutions of higher education prevent the unlawful possession, use, or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol by students and employees. Similarly, the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988 requires federal contractors and recipients of federal grants to maintain a drug-free environment. The above laws require that Hilbert College adopt and implement certain mandatory rules of conduct, and strictly enforce these rules by disciplinary measures.
A guest is defined as a person who is staying in a resident’s room for an evening or weekend. An overnight guest must room with their host and they must be with their host at all times. The host is responsible for the behavior of their guest. The resident host will sign in the guest at the residence hall front desk with a picture ID. A resident’s room can have no more than two guests spending the evening and guest(s) may stay no longer than two consecutive nights during the week. All guests are responsible to follow the rules and regulations that are stated in both the Residence Life Handbook and the Student Handbook. Any infraction by guests will result in immediate expulsion of the guests from the residence hall. Residents are responsible for their visitors and/or guests.
Residence Hall Policies
I have read and understand the items and conditions of the HOUSING CONTRACT, APPLICATION AND THE STUDENT HANDBOOK. Resident students will not be allowed to move in the Residences until all financial aid is credited and their account is paid in full or a payment plan is approved. All balances are payable by the published due date on the invoice. Failure to respond by the payment due date will result in a late fee and possible removal from the Residences. By submitting this contract there is no guarantee that I will be placed in the Residences. In the event that I do not get a room assignment, my housing deposit will be refunded in full. I also understand that failure to comply with Hilbert College policies could lead to disciplinary actions and/or termination of residency privileges. I understand that, this contract is binding for the entire academic year and if I break this contract, I will be assessed a fee of $100. By typing my full name, I agree.
