University Behavior Policies
Living on campus is an important part of the learning experience at Eastern Kentucky University. On campus residents have the opportunity to meet new people from a wide range of backgrounds, share a living space, participate in activities, and truly find out what it is like to be independent.
By living on-campus, a student is a member of the university residential community. As a member of the University residential community, residents are bound by all policies and procedures including, but not limited to, the Student Code of Conduct, Student Handbook, and Residential Community Guide. Students are responsible for knowing the University's regulations, disciplinary procedures, and penalties.
