Basic Rules

Please be on your best behavior.

Students living on campus are expected to know and abide by the University Student Conduct Code, which pertains to all students. More specifically, on-campus residents must know and abide by specific expectations, related to on-campus living. These are described in the Policies under Misconduct related to University Housing & Dining in the Student Conduct Code and can also be found within our Guide to Living on Campus.

University Student Conduct Code

The Student Conduct Code is grounded in a commitment to three core values: Respect, Responsibility, Honesty.


University of Northern Iowa students support the rights of individuals to live and work with each other in a safe environment reflective of the educational ideals of the university.


University of Northern Iowa students engage in responsible social conduct that reflects positively upon the university community, while modeling good citizenship in all communities.


University of Northern Iowa students live a life of integrity, creating good leaders, friends and colleagues who share the common goal of building our learning community.

In order to support these core values all students and student organizations are responsible for knowing the information, policies, and procedures outlined in the Student Conduct Code.

When incidents occur in the residence halls, a Residence Life Coordinator will follow up with the students allegedly involved. Residence Life Staff work in collaboration with the Office of the Dean of Students as appointed and trained Student Conduct Administrators to administer the student conduct process.

Students who would like to report a concern or alleged violation can contact a residence life staff member, the Office of the Dean of Students, or can report the allegation.

The Student Conduct Code and more general information regarding the student conduct process can be found on the Office of the Dean of Students website.

The Office of the Dean of Students is located in 118 Gilchrist Hall.
