University Facilities and Properties Policies and Procedures COMMUNITY LIVING STANDARDS There are four compelling Community Living Standards (CLS) that guide both our daily interactions with students and the formal Housing and Residence Life (HRL) conduct system. The four compelling CLS are broken down into specific residential community policies that residents are expected to abide by. These CLS were developed to help provide a safe and secure community. Violations that compromise the success, safety, or security of residents may result in appropriate disciplinary sanctions, including up to contract termination and are considered violations of the Tulane Student Code of Conduct.
