Housing Conduct Process

Purpose

The purpose of the Student Housing and Residence Life (SHRL) conduct system is to manage community standards by helping Licensees to understand their responsibility for maintaining their residential community. The Student Housing conduct system collaborates with the University Student Judicial process. The purpose of the Student Judicial process is to administer the Student Conduct Code in a manner that is consistent with the University’s core values of fairness, honesty, and integrity. Through the judicial process, SHRL strives to create and maintain a safe, developmental, and productive community in which Licensees are able to successfully manage academic and personal responsibilities.

Judicial Steps

If you have allegedly violated a policy stated in this License Agreement that is also a violation of the

Student Conduct Code, your case will additionally be adjudicated by the Office of Student Conduct, Rights, & Responsibilities. Staff members from these offices will make contact via your CSU East Bay e-mail address in order to process your case.

If you have allegedly violated a policy stated in this License Agreement that is not a violation of the Student Conduct Code, the following will occur:

  1. The Residence Life Staff will document the incident. Note: Documentation does not automatically mean that you will have a conduct case that will be adjudicated.

  2. Licensees will then be required to meet with a Residence Life Staff Member. Communication for a hearing will occur through phone, email, and/or campus mailbox. It is the Licensee’s responsibility to check their mail and respond to their hearing and all other conduct matters in the time provided.

  3. Licensees must be available when the hearing is called or the Hearing Officer(s) will only consider whatever written material has been provided. (If Licensees choose not to meet with the Hearing Officer(s) within the stated timeline, a decision will be made without their input. Furthermore, in this situation, Licensees waive their right to appeal the findings of their case, should they be found responsible).

  4. After an investigation, the Hearing Officer(s) will determine your responsibility for the violation(s) based on all available evidence.

  5. If found responsible in the Student Housing conduct system, the Housing Conduct Officer(s) may impose one or more of the sanctions listed below, as well as additional educational sanctions which may be appropriate.

  6. Within five working days of the time of the decision, you will be notified in writing regarding the outcome of your meeting.
