New York University is committed to the overall educational and personal development of the student, and views the unique experience of living in a residence hall as contributing greatly to such development.
The purpose of the student conduct process is to educate students about the importance of abiding by the policies of the University and Residence Hall community. The process is an established procedure designed to provide fundamental fairness to all students.
The student conduct process typically occurs as follows:
- An incident occurs and a complaint or report is filed.
- The Residence Hall Director (RHD) and/or the Residence Hall Assistant Director (RHAD) reviews the report and investigates the matter to determine if there is any alleged violation of Housing policy. After the investigation, the RHD/RHAD will either dismiss any allegations or conclude that a student conduct meeting is necessary.
- If a student conduct meeting is necessary, the staff member may adjudicate the matter him/herself or refer the case to another staff member in the Office of Residential Life and Housing services or the Office of Community Standards.
- After the student conduct meeting, the student is notified in writing of the outcome, including any sanctions imposed.
