Residence Hall Regulations

Residence Hall Regulations are those policies and procedures that assist in maintaining a safe and secure environment in residence halls. The following regulations are in addition to the UD Code of Conduct and the UD Housing Contract.


Appeal Process

The appeal process for Residence Hall Regulation violations exists to review the appropriateness of the Residence Hall Coordinator's initial decision. All appeals must be written and can be submitted to either the Coordinator (Upper Division students) or Associate Director (First Year students) of Student and Community Advocacy.

The appeal must be filed within five (5) business days of the date on which the decision email is sent from the Residence Hall Coordinator. The appeal is limited to two double spaced pages with one-inch margins. The appeal must clearly explain, in detail, the basis for the appeal, and should include one or more of the appeal grounds:

Grounds for Appeal:

  1. The decision of the Residence Hall Coordinator is contrary to the information presented during the meeting; or
  2. Procedures were not followed during the process; or
  3. The sanction imposed is inappropriate or unreasonable.

If a student submits an appeal, sanctions will not take effect until the Coordinator or Associate Director renders a decision, unless otherwise noted.

Following a review and potential meeting with the student, the Coordinator or Associate Director may uphold the initial decision, modify the sanction(s), or dismiss the case. The Coordinator or Associate Director will email a written notice of the appeal decision within ten (10) business days after receiving the written appeal.

Procedures for Fairness: Due Process

Any student charged with a policy violation at the University of Delaware has the right to a fair and impartial review to determine the merit of the charge(s).

University of Delaware, procedural fairness requires:

  • That a student be informed of the nature of the violation against them and their procedural rights.
