XII. Procedures for Non-Academic Conduct Action in Housing

A. The Assistant Director for Residential Life serves as the conduct officer to administer the student housing conduct process for residential students who have allegedly violated student housing policies and procedures. In special circumstances, the Non-Academic Conduct Officer and the Assistant Director for Residential Life may jointly handle violations of established standards of conduct.

B. When the Assistant Director for Residential Life or designee handles a case through the student housing conduct process, they will follow these basic due process procedures.

  1. Notification of charge(s) will be sent electronically to the student’s UAB email account by the Residence Life Coordinator or other student housing official (i.g., Director of Student Housing & Residential Life, Assistant Director for Residence Life, General Manager and/or Assistant General Manager). Upon receiving notification, the student has three (3) business days to schedule an appointment with the designated person as directed in the notification.
  2. The Residence Life Coordinator or other student housing official makes the decision to review the charges or send the case to the Assistant Director for Residential Life to be processed.  If the evidence supports a sanction, the student will have a conduct conference or hearing with the Residence Life Coordinator or other student housing official.
  3. If the evidence supports a sanction of removal from student housing or requires restitution, the student will be required to have a Conduct Hearing with the designated student housing official.
C. Appeals must be submitted to the next level of administration within three (3) business days of notification to the student of the decision.  The Director of Student Housing & Residential Life is the highest level of appeal for Student Housing conduct issues. Appeals made directly to the highest level without having followed the process described in this policy, will be remanded for appropriate handling. Consult the Res Life Handbook at www.uab.edu/housing for further information regarding the Student Housing conduct process and Right of Appeal Guidelines.
