Room Inspection & Right of Search in College-Owned Housing

Return to: Residence Life Information  


Right of Inspection by College Officials

Students who reside in student housing on the College campus should be aware that their apartments are subject to inspection by College administrators and residence hall staff for purposes of cleanliness, health, safety, and compliance with all College rules and regulations.  The student resident(s) shall be present (if possible) during such inspections.  Any information or property found in plain view during the inspection may be used as evidence against residents in College disciplinary proceedings.  Visual inspections may also occur when following emergency evacuation procedures (e.g. fire alarms).  If a student resident refuses to grant entry, the master key or card may be used to enter the apartment/bedroom.  In the event of an emergency, or where there is reasonable suspicion regarding a violation of College rules or regulations, a member of the Residence Life staff may enter a room for a visual inspection in the absence of the student residents.
