Philosophy and Goals

Our Philosophy

Residence Life has structured our student conduct process and our ResRules based on three principles:

  • ResRules are remedial in nature and are therefore designed to educate students about their responsibilities as members of the residence community and the consequences of their actions.
  • The safety and security of every student is the responsibility of everyone in the residence community.
  • Residence is a community that values mutual respect of the rights, responsibilities, dignity, wellbeing, and academic pursuits of all members.

Goals of the ResRules

  • Encourage students to make positive choices and accept responsibility for their behaviour.
  • Encourage students to resolve their own challenges in a mature and respectful manner.
  • Promote the safety and security of residence.
