Appeal Process

Residents have the right to appeal a decision made within the Behavior Process if there are concerns that:

  • There was not substantial evidence to support the conclusions reached.
  • A substantial error in due process was made where the resident did not receive adequate notice of the behavior meeting or standard University and University Housing procedures were not followed.
  • There is new evidence of a substantive nature that came to light after the original behavior meeting

All appeals must be received within seven (7) calendar days of the sanction being issued. In order for a hearing of appeal to be granted, the resident is expected to follow the guidelines included on the Behavior Appeal Form (links below). The administrator who hears the appeal will contact the resident and inform him/her of the decision regarding the appeal. The administrator hearing the appeal may decide to uphold the original decision, change the original decision to a less severe sanction, or overturn the original decision.

The Behavior Appeal Form can be found on our Forms and Publications page.
