article 1—student rights and responsibilities

Part 1. Student Rights

§ 1‑104 Privacy

(a) Members of the University community have the same rights of privacy as other citizens and surrender none of those rights by becoming members of the academic community. These rights of privacy extend to residence hall living. Nothing in University regulations or contracts shall give University officials authority to consent to a search by police or other government officials of offices assigned or living quarters leased to individuals except in response to a properly executed search warrant or search incident to an arrest.

(b) When the University seeks access to an office assigned or living quarters leased to an individual to determine compliance with provisions of applicable multiple dwelling unit laws, ordinances, and regulations, or for improvement or repairs, the occupant shall be notified of such action not less than twenty‑four hours in advance. There may be entry without notice in emergencies where imminent danger to life, safety, health, or property is reasonably feared and for custodial service.

(c) The University may not conduct or permit a search of an office assigned or living quarters leased to an individual except in response to a properly executed search warrant or search incident to an arrest.

(d) The University shall not regulate the social life of students or their organizations except as such regulations may apply to use of University premises, facilities, or premises approved for student residences. Additional regulations for living units may be made by a democratically constituted student government for the unit.

(e) The University shall not regulate the hours individuals may keep.
