Community Standards

SPU’s residence life program provides you with an opportunity to experience the fulfillment and challenges of living in a community.

Basic rights and responsibilities are the starting point for any living environment. The expectations of the SPU community reflect the University’s commitment to its Christian philosophy of education in the context of a Wesleyan heritage. Community standards are designed to provide a positive learning environment and are intended to promote the intellectual, social, spiritual, and physical well-being of students.

You may not agree with, or fully understand, some facets of the University’s behavioral expectations, but by enrolling as a student at SPU, you agree to live according to these expectations. Nonmatriculated students admitted to special programs are also expected to maintain these standards. The primary responsibility for discipline rests with the individual student. It is expected that qualities such as self-discipline, concern for the rights of others, intellectual and social maturity, and respect for public and private property will be fostered and developed. Violations may result in disciplinary action up to and including removal from housing or dismissal from SPU. The policies listed on this website are not intended to define misconduct in exhaustive terms. Policy questions should be addressed to your RLC or ARLC.
