Expectations of Resident Students

Students seeking to live on campus should carefully read the Regis Residence Hall Contract before signing. The Residence Hall Contract stipulates the terms under which students are permitted to live on campus.

Resident Housing Contract

  • Occupancy Schedule

    Residents may occupy their rooms from the day preceding the first day of classes until the last day of student examinations. Residents are expected to vacate rooms 24 hours after their last final, or within the posted schedule as distributed by the Office of Residence Life for those who have finals on the last day of exam period. Seniors will be asked to leave the day of their graduation at a designated time shared by the Office of Residence Life.

    • Students are not permitted to enter before these stated dates or to stay beyond these dates without an approved early arrival or late stay application. Any student who arrives before a hall opens with being pre-approved will be charged $50 per day until the hall opens and may face student conduct consequences. Any student who does not leave when a hall closes without being approved will be charge $50 per day until their departure and may face student conduct consequences.
    • All residence halls will close during certain break periods, including but not limited to Thanksgiving, Winter, Spring, and Easter. During these periods, students must vacate their assignment unless they have been approved to stay.
    • If a building must be closed due to an emergency, Regis reserves the right to relocate students to vacant and currently unoccupied spaces on campus.
  • Eligibility

    • Be registered as a full-time student and is sufficiently attending classes.
    • Make the residential housing deposit

Regis is not responsible for a student’s property, even in the case of emergencies. Each resident is encouraged to take appropriate steps to safeguard his/her property.

    • Regis does not offer storage space for personal belongings. Any personal belongings left in my room following the end of occupancy will be boxed up and stored for two (2) weeks and then donated to charity.
  • Damage

    All residents are required to take proper care of all residence halls and areas in their use and to report vandals and vandalism. Residents are responsible for any charges resulting from damage to their assigned room or to residence hall common areas, notwithstanding normal wear and tear, occurring during their occupancy. All damage to walls, ceilings, floors, furniture or woodwork is to be charged to the individual residing in the room and that residents are held collectively responsible for damage to residence hall common areas (study rooms, halls, common areas, bathrooms, elevators, etc.).

  • Emergency

    Regis will respond to and mitigate the effects of an emergency in order to provide for the welfare of its residents. In an emergency, Regis reserves the right to close residence halls, student rooms, or common areas and/or dining facilities temporarily without making any adjustments in the charges. However, Regis will do everything reasonably possible in an emergency to restore normalcy.

  • Right of Entry

    Representatives of Regis are authorized to inspect rooms. Health and safety checks will take place by members of the Residence Life staff and/or on call staff no less than one time per semester and whenever there is reasonable concern regarding a student’s health, safety, and/or welfare, or for damage assessment and/or repairs. In addition, all resident rooms will be inspected at each hall closing (e.g. Thanksgiving, Winter, Spring, Easter, and May). When feasible, residents will be notified in advance.
