Housing/Residential Life Eviction Policy

The University of Louisiana at Monroe is governed by the University of Louisiana System Board of Supervisors. A State Board Policy requires that all students reside in on-campus housing unless they meet the criteria for an allowable exemption. In addition, the University is charged with the responsibility of providing a healthy, safe, educational environment for the University community. This responsibility supersedes the enforcement of the mandatory housing policy. In order to promote and preserve the proper educational environment in the residence hall system, the University reserves the right to remove from the system those students who demonstrate an inability or unwillingness to function within the parameters of housing rules and regulations. The evicted student must vacate University housing facilities within 24 hours, and the student forfeits all refundable housing fees.

Violations of housing rules constitute a violation of at least Subsections 5.03:27 and 5.03:28 of the ULM Code of Student Conduct. Actions may be violations of other subsections of the “Standards of Conduct for Students” in addition to those subsections. The ULM Code of Student Conduct also provides for censures to include forfeiture of rights and privileges (Section Six, 6.01:10) and mandatory on-campus or off-campus housing (Section Six, 6.01:25).

All housing eviction cases will be assigned, administered and/or adjudicated through the Office of Student Services (Student Conduct) or the appropriate University Unit. A student removed from the residence halls for legal, judicial, or health reasons may re-apply for housing after a one year absence. Acceptance back into the residence halls will be at the discretion of the Office of Residential Life, Student Services (Student Conduct) and the Counseling Center (when applicable). Specific conditional requirements along with documentation may be required from law enforcement, university personnel, mental health professionals or other pertinent sources.

NOTE: Student cases which are subject to housing eviction will be considered in terms of all past housing violations documented in a student’s disciplinary file. “Fourth Offense” or “Combination of four” means four offenses which have occurred during a student’s entire tenure in University housing; this does not mean four offenses occurring within a semester.
