General Information: Community Standards

Your on-campus residential experience is more than a convenient place to sleep and live.  It is a great opportunity to learn about yourself, others and how to truly be part of a diverse community.  The student Community Standards are established to help students be part of communities that are inclusive, respectful and conducive to academic pursuits.

Behavior that strays from the goals and mission of the University and Student Housing Services will not be accepted.  Any form of bigotry, threats, intimidation, violence, or other forms of harassment or oppression against any member of our community is not welcome and will be addressed by Student Housing Services staff.

Disciplinary action may be taken against any student of the University of Hawai`i at Mänoa community for any misconduct or violation of University and/or Student Housing Services policies and regulations including, but not limited, to the following types of conduct:
