Student living within NJCU’s Residence Halls, have the responsibility to learn about the expectations the University has concerning students. It is important for students to familiarize themselves with the policies in effect so that they can make informed choices.
Resident students have the right to exist in an atmosphere free of mischievous and delinquent incidents and behavior. The following policy is designed to promote and maintain such an atmosphere.
Resident students found violating any of the previously noted policies, any policies as stated in the New Jersey City University Gothic Guide Student Handbook or engaging in any activity not specifically stated that may cause disruption in the residence halls or constitute as misuse of NJCU property are subject to the following sanctions (not in this particular order):
Once the Office of Residence Life establishes that an incident has occurred, it is the student’s responsibility to prove that s/he is not responsible. A letter and a non-appeal form will be sent to the resident student involved regarding the time and date for a meeting with Residence Life staff. If the resident student agrees with the charges outlined in the letter and does not wish to appeal, they need only to sign and return the non-appeal form to the Office of Residence Life. By doing this, the resident student is agreeing with the charges and whatever sanctions the Office of Residence Life sees fit.
If the student does wish to appeal or discuss the charges outlined in the letter, s/he is responsible for making the set meeting time. Students who fail to make or reschedule disciplinary meetings, forfeit their right to appeal and sanctions will be determined by the Office of Residence Life.
*Sanctions may vary depending on the severity of incident and at the discretion of the Residence Life Director.
