Housing and Residence Life
Policies and Procedures

Policies and Procedures

  • When it involves your Housing contract – or your conduct on campus – the following pages give you the ins, outs, dos, don'ts and all the instructions you'll need so you can start living at Seattle University.

    What Every Student Should Know

    Your Housing Agreement, a contract, spells out what we will do for you -- and what you agree to in return. Once you sign it, the contract is legal and binding and cannot be broken except in very specific situations.

    The Guide to Residence Hall Living and the Resident Handbook, are a legally binding adjunct to your Housing Agreement. Signing your contract signals your agreement to abide by the rules, policies and regulations.

    Health and Safety Inspections

    Rooms are inspected for health and safety conditions, including any damages, at the end of each term or whenever the room is vacated. Residents have the right to be present for this inspection and to schedule it with their Resident Assistant (RA) before moving out.
