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 Coordinators initial decision. All appeals must be written and can be submitted to either the Complex Coordinator, Associate Director, or Senior Associate Director of the student’s Residential area.

The appeal must be filed within five (5) business days of the date in which the decision email is sent from the Residence Hall Coordinator or Complex Coordinator. The appeal is limited to three 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. Procedures were not followed during the process; or
  2. The sanction imposed is inappropriate or unreasonable.

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

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