Housing PoliciesResidential Education and Housing (REH) holds its policies to maintain healthy residential communities. Violation of any college policy is taken very seriously and may result in the student being considered in the college conduct system, regardless of any action taken by civil authorities. Below are a number of the college policies specific to residential life:
The housing agreement for college housing accommodations is legally binding for the entire academic year, with exceptions made for students graduating at semester or participating in college-sponsored study abroad opportunities.
The housing agreement needs to be signed within three class days after notification that the agreements are available. The agreement is worded in terms of living a certain area and is not tied to specific spot. When a housing agreement is signed during the housing selection process, the document is binding and cannot be broken. Students will not be released from the housing agreement between semesters.
Below are the housing agreements for the 2014-15 academic year:
- Gries Hall nine-month housing agreement
- Gries Hall 11-and-a-half-month housing agreement
- Prémontré & Xanten Halls housing agreement
- All other campus-owned housing areas housing agreement
The residency requirement for St. Norbert College is as follows:
St. Norbert is a four year residential college. All students must live on campus unless released from the residency requirement. Release may be granted for commuter status or off-campus status. Students should follow proper procedures for release.
Violations of the residency status will be adjudicated through the college’s conduct process. Sanctions could include dismissal from the college for up to one semester; assignment to a housing unit and incurring the fee for the unit; and disciplinary probation.
All students need to receive permission from REH to commute or live off campus on a yearly basis. Permission is not official until the student has been notified in writing from REH.
