Resident eHandbook

Welcome to the webpage for current residence hall students! We are looking forward to a great 2013-14 academic year!

The Department of Residence Life & Student Housing provides a living environment that promotes and is compatible with the academic success of students. To that end we have established policies and community standards of behavior which are found here on this website, including the RLSH Community Standards. By signing a contract for a residence hall, students agree to abide by and support these standards as well as the SMU Code of Conduct. All policies apply to residents and guests. Current and incoming residents are highly encouraged to read the links from this page and to contact the RLSH central office if there are any questions regarding this information.

Statement of Inclusion

The Department of Residence Life & Student Housing promotes the understanding of and appreciation for all races, religions, national origins, socio-economic classes, gender identities and expressions, sexual orientations, physical and learning abilities, ages and veteran status. It is our goal for residents to learn how to be good citizens and to learn to demonstrate appreciation for diverse cultures while respecting the differences of others. Moreover, we aim to protect all residents’ basic rights as described in our community standards; therefore, acts of oppression, discrimination, abuse, harassment, bias and/or hatred will not be tolerated or ignored.
