The La Aldea Complex at night

By choosing to live in La Aldea Apartments, you are electing to reside in an academic community. Any reference to the community refers to the La Aldea Apartments. As a member of this community, you have certain rights as a resident and as a student. Please recognize as well that other members of this community have these same rights, and that your rights stop where another’s begins. For this reason it will be important to learn to compromise with others in order to maintain an environment in which all members of the community may grow as individuals and may pursue learning as a cornerstone of the campus residential experience. Community Standards are established to assist in shaping this environment, to protect your rights and define the responsibilities you have to others.

As a member of the La Aldea community, you are expected to abide by local, state and federal laws, as well as by these Community Standards (and others as may be developed to further support this community). Responsibility for a violation of a Community Standard is based on whether it is more probable than not that the violation occurred, as concluded by a reasonable interpretation of available facts and relevant information. Note: If police are involved, the case may be referred to the Dean of Students Office. You may be referred to the Dean of Student’s Office for alleged violations of the Student Code of Conduct, repeated violations of the Community Standards or for not completing sanctions resulting from a finding of responsibility. For more information on the Student Code of Conduct go to: or contact the Dean of Students Office at (520) 621-7057.

APARTMENT ASSIGNMENT and ROOMMATES It is your responsibility to reside in your assigned bedroom and apartment and abide by your roommate agreement. You may not transfer bedrooms or apartments without express consent of the Coordinator or Office Manager. You are not permitted to live in any space other than the one to which you have been assigned. Community Resident Assistants (CRAs) will conduct an audit of each apartment to verify the presence of residents in the correct room assignment. APARTMENT DECORATIONS The following items are prohibited: nails, thumbtacks, screws, pins, crepe paper, acetate and adhesives (such as gum labels, decals, contact stickers, contact paper, Scotch® tape, or rubber cement).

You will be charged for any damages to these items. University furniture may not be stored elsewhere, either in or outside of the building. Students will be charged for replacement costs of furnishings lost by moving them out of the room. Misappropriated or stolen items of any kind (including La Aldea furniture) found in your apartment subjects you to conduct action by the University and/or UAPD. You must provide your own desk, cooking utensils, dishes, pillow, blanket, bedspread, sheets, and towels. Unapproved appliances include an air conditioner, extra refrigerator or freezer. Halogen lamps are strictly prohibited, as they are a fire hazard.

• Assault: Assault is defined as intentionally, knowingly or recklessly causing any physical injury to another person; intentionally placing another person in reasonable expectation of imminent physical injury; knowingly touching another person with the intent to injure, insult or provoke a person. If you are found responsible for assault you may be evicted. • Aggravated Assault: Aggravated assault is an unlawful attack by one person upon another for the purpose of inflicting severe or aggravated bodily injury. This type of assault is usually accompanied by the use of a weapon or by means likely to produce death or great bodily harm. Attempts are included, since it is not necessary that an injury result when a gun, knife or other weapon is used, which could and probably would result in serious personal injury if the crime were successfully completed. If found responsible for aggravated assault, you will be evicted. BALCONIES You are responsible for the activity on your balcony or on common area balconies. Do not hang signs or banners on your balcony; climb up or down from your balcony; or affix anything to any part of the balcony. Neither alcohol or smoking are allowed on balconies.

FIRE SAFETY We expect you to practice effective fire safety at all times by exercising prudent judgment and following fire safety guidelines established or revised for La Aldea.

LOBBIES and RECREATION AREAS La Aldea has a main lounge and common areas that you and your guests may use. You may consume food in these areas, as long as you use care and discretion. You and your guests must display appropriate conduct. Please pick up any trash and return any furniture to its proper location. You may not sleep in lobby and recreation areas, nor may your guests. MOPEDS and MOTORCYCLES You may not operate, park or store a moped, motorized bicycle or motorcycle within your apartment, balcony or courtyard. NOISE/COURTESY HOURS Please exercise good judgment at all times with respect to making excessive noise. Do not make or cause noise that infringes on the rights and the needs of other community members to sleep and/or study. Noise which is disruptive to other residents is prohibited, both inside and outside of your building. Courtesy and consideration for others is expected at all times and excessive noise at any hour is unacceptable. Never direct amplified sound or yelling at residents’ windows. Do not play musical instruments in your apartment that may disturb your community. A reasonable level of noise must also be maintained in the courtyards. Noise may be deemed disruptive if it can be heard through a closed door or window. You are expected to respond positively to requests to reduce your level of noise and to respectfully approach others with requests for noise reduction. What are the criteria for determining if noise is excessive? In most cases, if the noise can be heard two doors away, whether doors are open or closed, it is excessive. Who is responsible for enforcing quiet or courtesy hours? All community members are responsible for enforcing quiet and courtesy hours. The smooth operation of our community is everyone’s responsibility, not just that of the staff. Community members should politely ask the person(s) making the noise to lower her/his noise level. Should you call the CRA when there is loud noise? It is your responsibility to confront this situation initially in a respectful manner. If after one request the person(s) does not comply with your request to decrease her/his noise level, then contact the CRA and s/he will be glad to intervene. The CRA will not respond if you have not already attempted to politely confront the situation. Additionally, anonymous phone calls to them will not be honored. Can the CRA ask students to keep the noise down even if no one has contacted them to do so? Yes, if the noise bothers an individual CRA, s/he can ask students to lower their noise level. Also, if the CRA is in the hallway or walking the complex on security rounds, s/he may ask students to lower their noise level if noise can be heard two apartments away from the source. This may result in documentation. PAINTING You may not paint any rooms in your apartment. PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY You are responsible and accountable for your behavior and for the choices you make as a member of the La Aldea community. You may not engage in behaviors that are illegal or could endanger yourself or others in the community.

All materials for posting or display must have the approval of the Director of Residential Education or Coordinator of Graduate & Professional Housing and comply with Community Standards for civility and fire safety. All materials must be affixed to surfaces in a manner that will do neither temporary nor permanent damage to the surfaces to which they are affixed. Organizations may request permission to post by contacting Residential Education at (520) 621-4638. PRANKS Pranks are not allowed in La Aldea as they may cause physical and/or psychological damage. PRESENCE DURING A VIOLATION If you are present in an apartment, student room, residence hall, or at a Residence Life function where a violation of a Community Standard or University policy is occurring, you will be in violation. If you are present and realize a violation is occurring, you must leave the apartment and/or area at once and report the violations to Residence Life staff immediately.

If you have participated in, have knowledge of and/or witnessed a violation of the Housing License Agreement, Community Standards, AUP, or General Procedures, you may be asked to appear at a conduct hearing. As a member of this community, you are obligated to help uphold Community Standards and you are strongly encouraged to participate in conduct proceedings when you have information relevant to one or more violations. You may be referred to the Dean of Students Office for alleged violations of the Student Code of Conduct, violations of the Community Standards, or for not completing sanctions resulting from a finding of responsibility. For more information on the Student Code of Conduct go to or contact the Dean of Students Office at (520) 6217057. The University reserves the right to temporarily or permanently move or remove a student from Residence Life housing based on violations of the Community Standards, the Student Code of Conduct, other applicable Board of Regents or University policies, procedures, or codes, violations of federal, state or other applicable law or for any other administrative reason with its sole discretion. If you have knowledge of and/or witnessed a violation of the Housing License Agreement, Community Standards, AUP or General Procedures, please submit an Incident Report at the following site and fill in the report information as completely as possible: We expect you to be honest and without prejudice in reporting violations and/or when participating in conduct proceedings or investigations. One of the principle goals of the University of Arizona is to provide students with a quality education. This involves “providing an atmosphere conducive to the student’s intellectual development integrated with that of other facets of his/ her personality–religious, moral, emotional, aesthetic, physical, social.” With the help of the Community Director and the staff, individual students must assume the responsibility for establishing and maintaining an academic atmosphere beneficial to all. Certain forms of behavior which disturb or offend others and/or violate the rights of others living and working on campus, or which run counter to a major goal of the University, may result in a disciplinary procedure/action. For this reason, and to protect the rights of the community, Residence Life staff has the responsibility and the authority to document, to correct, to counsel and to administer sanctions when necessary.

Conduct-Related Correspondence Residence Life communicates with you two ways: •

Via email to your UA email account (<username> Please add the domain to your address book so that University mail does not go into your spam folder. This is the official method for University communi- cations and the primary method by which Residence Life delivers conduct-related information. A conduct-related email message will contain a tracking link which you must follow to authenticate your identity and to access detailed information regarding incidents in which you were involved. You must access this information immediately. Refer to the University’s Official Student Email Policy, “Use of Email for Official Correspondence with Students” at emailpolicy.htm. If you encounter any problems, please send an email to

• A hard-copy mail to your residence hall mailbox. Check your mailbox frequently and pay close attention to any Residence Life correspondence you receive. You may receive a package slip and be required to sign for the conduct letter. As a student at the University of Arizona, it is your responsibility to review these messages in a timely manner and respond as instructed.

The Conduct Process

Page 16

Disciplinary Action Procedures This section describes the conduct process: notification of charges, your rights in an administrative hearing and how you can appeal a decision. If you are confused at any point, please ask a staff member for clarification. 1. You violate a Community Standard, policy, procedure or law, and this is brought to the attention of a Residence Life staff member. 2. The staff member investigates and, depending on the circumstances, takes one or more of the following actions: • Issues a verbal warning and advises you that recurrence will result in further action and notes the warning in the Warning Log maintained for future reference • Completes an Incident Report and submits it to the Community Director (which initiates the formal conduct proceeding process) • Requests that witnesses complete an Incident Report as part of the incident documentation that is submitted to the Hearing Officer • Notifies UAPD. At this point, the issue becomes a legal matter and is subject to applicable procedures for legal warnings, arrest and prosecution, in addition to Residence Life and University action. 3. The Hearing Officer reviews all Incident Reports and takes one or more of the following actions: • • • • •

Sends a written warning reminding you of the Community Standards Meets informally with you to address the situation Schedules a hearing for you with a Community Director to address the situation Refers the case to the Dean of Students Office for their review Determines that no action needs to be taken

4. The Hearing Officer sends you a Notice to Appear letter containing the alleged violations against you, a hearing time and location and a narrative of the incident. You will receive the Incident Review Hearing Notification either via email at your <username> account, or via mail in your residence hall mailbox. You must respond as instructed. 5. An Incident Review Hearing is scheduled to accomplish the following objectives: • To address the conduct process and review your procedural rights • To review the incident, provide you with an opportunity to discuss the alleged violation(s) and provide an opportunity for you to accept or deny responsibility for the incident • To determine which Community Standards or policies you have violated, if any, and if you are found responsible, to issue the relevant sanctions • To review expectations for living in a community, clarify Community Standards, encourage you to think about your behavior and its effect on other members of the community, and otherwise learn from this experience 6. Incident Review hearings result in one of the following outcomes as supported by the preponderance of available evidence: • The Hearing Officer determines that you are not responsible for the violation(s) and dismisses the case. • The Hearing Officer determines that you are responsible for the violation(s) charged and issues one or more sanctions. • The Hearing Officer determines that you are not responsible for the stated violations, but are responsible for one or more other violations and assigns sanctions. Note:

If you fail to appear for the Incident Review Hearing as scheduled, the Hearing Officer may issue a sanction in your absence, based on the evidence known to the Hearing Officer at the time of the Incident Review Hearing.

will be incomplete. Original sanctions and timelines will stand and be enforced.

7. At the conclusion of the Incident Review Hearing, you will receive a copy of the Decision Letter. This letter includes the deci- sion and, as applicable, indicates the sanctions imposed. Along with a copy of this letter, you will receive instructions for initiating an optional appeal.

8. You may appeal a conduct decision to the Coordinator for Student Behavioral Education for which a sanction has been imposed. Your appeal must be submitted in writing within two business days following the date your decision letter was sent

(indicated on your letter). Not all appeal requests are eligible for an Appeal Hearing. Whether an Appeal Hearing is granted is based upon one (or more) of the following grounds for an appeal: • New information that affects the case is discovered/becomes available • Proper procedures were not followed • Bias occurred The Coordinator for Student Behavioral Education will respond to all appeal requests in writing, whether or not an appeal hearing is scheduled. Note: If you fail to appear for your review hearing, the review will be dropped. No decision will be rendered, as the review will be incomplete. Original sanctions and timelines will stand and be enforced. 9. Appeal Hearings are held to accomplish the following objectives: • Summarize the grounds upon which you seek appeal • Provide you the opportunity to substantiate the grounds or appeal with credible evidence • Permit the Appeal Officer to question you and/or the initial Hearing Officer and/or any witnesses • Decide the appeal based on the merits of the grounds for appeal

10. An appeal decision is made. Possible appeal decisions include: • Uphold the original decision and/or sanction • Overturn the original decision and/or sanction • Amend the original decision and/or sanction • Remand the case for a new Incident Review

You will be given an Appeal Hearing Decision summarizing the result of the hearing.

Note: Cases may be reopened when new information is identified and confirmed, where that information could have a material impact on the original decision.

Student Conduct Rights and Responsibilities It is your responsibility to: • Frequently check your University email account and your residence hall mailbox for official student conduct-related messages. • Pick up and sign for conduct-related mail at your front desk. •

Refrain from disrupting conduct proceedings or harassing or intimidating participants or others. If the Hearing/Appeal Officer feels you are doing any of these things, you will be requested to cease the offending behavior immediately. If you continue this or any other inappropriate behavior, the Hearing/Appeal Officer may close, postpone or terminate the hearing, and/or have you (and any other participant behaving inappropriately) removed. You will lose the right to participate further.

• Appear at your own conduct proceeding. If you fail to appear, or if you leave or are removed from the hearing, you waive the right to present evidence, or in any other way participate further, in the hearing. The hearing will continue and a decision will be made in your absence, based on available evidence. • Be honest during conduct proceedings, as dishonesty during conduct proceedings violates Community Standards. If you fail to be honest during your conduct proceeding, you will be subject to further action. This may include, but not be limited to:

Page 17

Page 18

modifying the charge against you during the proceedings and taking your dishonesty into account when making decisions and issuing sanctions. • Know the Community Standards, Housing License Agreement obligations, policies, procedures, wing/community rules and/or the law. Ignorance is not a valid defense in conduct proceedings. It is your right to: • Be notified in advance of the specific violation(s) with which you are charged. • Be notified in advance of the date, time and location of the hearing. • Timely clarification of Community Standards, contractual obligations, policies, wing/community rules, laws and Residence Life conduct procedures when you request it. • Reschedule a hearing once prior to the hearing, if the scheduled hearing interferes with class or a commitment beyond your control (you may be asked for verification). Conduct hearings may be postponed or continued at a later date for any reason deemed appropriate by the Hearing/Appeal Officer. • Be treated with dignity and respect at all times. • A fair and impartial hearing. • Confidential treatment of proceedings and outcomes by Residence Life Staff and its agents. • Notification and explanation of decisions and sanctions, as well as consequences for not completing sanctions. • Appeal a conduct decision for which a sanction, beyond a warning, is imposed. • Bring an advisor (friend, parent, student, other) to a hearing. However, advisors may not participate in the hearing in any way other than to privately advise you and provide personal support. • Present testimony and witnesses relevant to the incident. You may also question and refute other testimony and witnesses. • Witnesses are excluded from the hearing untill called and must leave when excused. Witnesses will be interviewed separately. • Witness testimony (written or verbal) will not be considered unless the witness is willing to be identified to all relevant parties including the staff members and the accused student(s). • Verbal testimony of witness is preferred, but written statements may be presented when witnesses are unavailable to participate in a hearing. Written statements may be accorded less credibility than verbal testimony because the author is unavailable for questioning or clarification. • Character witnesses will not be permitted. • Irrelevant or redundant testimony or evidence may be excluded by the Hearing/Appeal Officer. • Not incriminate yourself. • Request an open hearing before the hearing commences, if the Hearing/Appeal Officer agrees to the request. Otherwise, conduct proceedings are closed to non-involved persons. The claimant has the same right. • Give or withhold permission for the conduct proceedings to be recorded. It is your responsibility to provide or withhold this permission in advance, and without disrupting the conduct proceedings. Every other participant in the hearing has the same right. • Request reasonable disability accommodation in any Residence Life proceeding. It is important to note, however, that a dis- ability in itself is not a valid defense in conduct proceedings. You will be held accountable for your actions regardless of your abilities. • Know that results of Residence Life conduct proceedings are kept confidential and only shared with University officials and others with a legitimate need to know. Conduct issues are reviewed with your parents and/or others only when you give

Conduct Sanctions and Definitions The Residence Life Conduct System is educational in nature. Its primary purpose is to help you learn from choices you make and to become a positive contributor to the residence hall community. Consequences, or sanctions, are assigned when you are found responsible for violating a Community Standard, contractual obligation, policy or law. Sanctions are intended to help you learn and each subsequent violation/sanction builds upon the last. If found responsible, your sanctions may include any or a combination of the following:

REPRIMAND/WARNING Reprimands or warnings can be verbal or written. They serve as a notice that if you are found responsible for one or more future policy violations, a higher level of sanctions will result.

PROBATION This is a formal notice that your involvement in an incident is unacceptable. You are on probation for the time listed on the front page of your Incident Review Report. Residence Life reserves the right to extend the period of probation. If you are found responsible for one or more future policy violations, the details of this incident will be considered in any future sanctioning for the duration of your time living on campus.

DEFERRED EVICTION Being placed on deferred eviction status means if you are found responsible for violating any further community standard you will be evicted from the residence halls. This constitutes your last chance to remain eligible to live in the residence halls.

EMERGENCY INTERIM SUSPENSION FROM RESIDENCE LIFE Emergency interim suspension from a residence hall may be imposed if there is reasonable cause to believe that your continued presence may pose an immediate threat to the educational environment, the physical or emotional health, safety or well being to yourself, other residents or staff, and/or to University property.

EVICTION The University may terminate your Housing License Agreement if you do not abide by the Community Standards or University rules. If you are evicted, you will be required to move out of the residence hall within 48 hours after the conduct process is completed. Should you be involved in any other policy violation(s) or be disruptive in any way prior to your leaving the building, you will be required to leave immediately. Note: If you are evicted, you remain financially responsible for rent for the remainder of the semester. Once evicted, you are no longer eligible to live in or visit any residence hall in the future. Incidents that can result in automatic eviction from a residence hall include, but are not limited to: • Tampering with fire safety equipment or devices. This includes, but is not limited to: creating false fire alarms or discharging fire extinguishers • Bomb threats • Possession of large amounts of alcohol beyond single-serving size whether you are underage or over 21 years old • Repeated use or possession of alcohol, to include as few as two times • Possessing, using, selling or distributing any legal prescription (outside of prescribed instructions), including marijuana, or non- prescription drug or illegal drug, synthetic drug, controlled substance. If it is in your room, your pocket or anywhere else under your control, it is considered to be yours.

written permission to do so, unless your violation pertains to alcohol or drugs, as permitted by federal law. In such cases, Residence Life will provide results of conduct proceedings in response to a properly executed subpoena.

Page 20

• Possession of a weapon. This includes simulated weapons, disabled weapons, dangerous chemicals, any explosive device, nun- chucks, swords, brass knuckles, knives (including butterfly knives), guns, paint ball guns, pellet guns and any other material that can be used to threaten or endanger others • Theft (including identity theft) • Harassment • Stalking • Defacing or damaging property • Endangering yourself or others, including self-harming behavior • Acts of individual violence (see examples below) or domestic violence (as defined on page 4): • Physically hurting or causing injury to yourself or others • Sexual assault/misconduct • Fighting • Pushing/shoving, etc.

Additional Sanctions Additional sanctions may be assigned. They may include, but are not limited to:

COMMUNITY SERVICE You may be required to complete a designated number of service hours with a non-profit organization in the community. A list of approved non-profit organizations in Tucson and specific community service requirements will be provided to you.

EDUCATIONAL SANCTIONS Educational sanctions include, but are not limited to: • Making a formal and/or public apology • Writing a paper, presenting a program or performing a service that demonstrates an understanding of relevant issues and effects of the behavior • Participation in a specified workshop or seminar or an educational/awareness enhancing discussion with a specified referral person • Restriction or modification of privileges • Community service either on campus or with a local agency • Creating a bulletin board or poster

MONETARY SANCTIONS A $75 monetary sanction will be assessed if you are found responsible for violating a Community Standard or University policy. The monetary sanction will be assessed per incident when each incident occurs.


REPAIR/REPLACEMENT COSTS If you intentionally or unintentionally damage University property, you will be charged a repair or replacement cost.

RESTITUTION If you intentionally or unintentionally damage or steal personal property, you may be required to make due compensation to the owner.

ROOM/HALL TRANSFER You may be transferred to another room or residence hall as a sanction when found in violation of a Community Standard, policy or for other behavioral factors.

STUDENT HEALTH ALCOHOL AND DRUG EDUCATION (SHADE) PROGRAMS â&#x20AC;˘ SHADE Classes Health Promotions within the Campus Health Center provides a six-hour educational risk-reduction class for students who are in violation of alcohol and other drug policies at the University of Arizona. There are two separate classes; one for alcohol and one for marijuana. â&#x20AC;˘ SHADE Basics You will have two one-on-one sessions with a counselor and the sessions are 45-50 minutes long. The counselor will use the BASICS (Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College Students) model for the sessions. Note: There is a fee for both programs. You must register in advance by calling (520) 621-5700 or online at

VISITATION RESTRICTION Visitation restriction means that you are forbidden to be present in a specific residence hall or halls. In cases of eviction, you may not be present in any University-operated residence hall indefinitely. You need prior written permission from the Director of Residence Life or designee to enter these locations. In cases of hall transfers, you are barred from being in your current hall indefinitely, unless you receive prior written permission from the Assistant Vice President, Residence Life & University Housing, or designee. You may be cited for trespassing by UAPD.

If you are under 21, the University may disclose to your parent or legal guardian information about a violation of any federal, state or local law, or any rule or policy of the institution governing the use or possession of alcohol or a controlled substance. Your parent or legal guardian will be notified if it has been determined that you have committed a disciplinary violation with respect to such use or possession.
