Dignity & Integrity

There is no room for fear and intimidation

All residents - including you - are entitled to live without feeling threatened, intimidated or harassed by others.  Our staff have the same right too.

Residents must not intimidate, interfere with, threaten or otherwise obstruct any person, including Residence Life Staff.
