Rights and Responsibilities



Each student living in our halls has the right to live in a space where they feel safe and secure. A place where they can be respected and grow as an individual. Our Student Conduct Code and Community Living Standards help ensure students' rights are being upheld. All students are held accountable to the Student Conduct Code and Community Living Standards and should be familiar with all policies.


Temple University’s Office of University Housing & Residential Life hall staff members includes Resident Directors, Front Desk Managers, Resident Coordinators, and Resident Assistants; they serve as tremendous resources and have been trained to assist you in a wide variety of situations. Our Hall staff will be discussing the wide range of opportunities available to you while you are living in University Housing. Please do not hesitate to contact them if you need assistance. We hope that your time with us will be enriching, and that we can support you in achieving your goals at Temple.


Important aspects of attending the university as a student are having respect for the rights of others in the community, conducting one’s self in a manner that is compatible with the university’s mission and taking responsibility for one’s actions. Responsibility for the enforcement of the rules of the university rests with all the members of the Temple community. University rules should serve as a guide for high personal standards.
