University Residences Guidelines and Policies

University Residences welcomes you! We are here to support your growth and development and will make every effort to help you feel at home while you live with us. 

Many opportunities are available to help you be a part of life in your residence and on campus. You can participate in residence government, intramural sports, service organizations, and study groups. You can even hold a part-time job in a residence. Take advantage of these opportunities and get involved—you will be glad you did. Like most experiences, the more you put into your community, the more you will gain. 

University Residences staff members want to help you succeed. Staff members play a key role in the development of programs and activities that can expand your skills, knowledge, and horizons. We provide resources to help you get the most out of your on-campus experience. According to  FERPA guidelines and the statement recorded on University Residences' check-in form, involving parents in this educational process can also contribute to the overall success of students. 

Information and the University Residences' policies provided here will help you make informed choices while living here. If you have questions, you can speak with a resident assistant or any of the residence's management staff. 

EMERGENCY PROCEDURES

ACCIDENTS
Contact the nearest staff member or the main office for assistance. Staff will arrange ambulance transportation and other needed help. Dial 9-1-1 from any campus telephone for immediate contact with the Purdue Police. 
BOMB THREATS
An intermittent signal on the fire alarm system indicates a bomb threat has been received for the building. Residents may elect to leave the building or remain while a search is made. If the signal becomes continuous, the building must be totally evacuated. 
FIRE OR EXPLOSION
Activate the nearest fire alarm to cause evacuation of the building. Report location of the fire if possible to a staff member or the main office. Follow fire procedures posted in your room. Fire drills are conducted once a semester in each building and all residents are expected to comply with the conditions of the fire drill. 
TORNADO WARNING
Activation of a continuous siren indicates that a tornado may be in the immediate vicinity. You should immediately seek cover and proceed to the lower areas away from windows. More protection is usually afforded if one remains next to inside support walls or under heavy furniture. All food service will cease immediately. Slightly open the windows in your student room. The sirens are tested the first Saturday of each month at 11 a.m. 
UNAUTHORIZED GROUP ACTION
Although the temptation to watch the action outside is great, close and lock your windows, close the draperies, and then stay away from window areas. Refrain from calling out windows or throwing items out. Such actions only call attention to you and may result in damage to your room and neighboring rooms, or risk personal injury to a resident from broken glass. 
UTILITIES FAILURE
Notify your RA or the main office because some utility failures may be limited to only one or two rooms. In more widespread failures, use a flashlight. 

SAFETY

The University Residences' management team considers the safety and security of residents a top priority. To encourage a safe environment, University Residences utilizes a number of security measures. Everyone must help maintain the safety and security of the residences. You need to be alert to potentially unsafe situations and take preventive actions. To report an incident, please visit the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities.
IN THE RESIDENCES

Maintaining a safe environment is every resident's responsibility. Actions that jeopardize the safety of other residents include but are not limited to the following and are explained in more detail in the section titled "Student Conduct and Regulations".

Consumption of alcohol or illicit drugs, possession of a weapon, discharging fire extinguishers when there is no fire, propping doors open that should be closed or locked, removing screens from windows, or any form of vandalism

These actions will result in judicial proceedings. 

ACCESS CLERK
Each residence hall is equipped with a card reader access device that will unlock the exterior door after hours. Residents will use their Purdue Identification card, “swipe” the door access device card reader to unlock the exterior door of their assigned hall (excludes Purdue Village and Hilltop Apartments). Also, there is a night access clerk stationed at the main office of each residence hall to monitor residents and their escorted guests who enter the building after hours.
CONFRONT STRANGERS
Ask unescorted strangers why they are in the residence. If you feel uncomfortable doing this, ask an RA or another staff member to intervene. If you feel there is an immediate threat, call 911.
ESCORT GUESTS
Escort guests at all times, both for their safety and to avoid causing uneasiness among other residents. Always remember that you are responsible for the conduct of your guests.

REPORT SAFETY-RELATED MAINTENANCE PROBLEMS
Please report all security and safety-related problems directly to Resident Assistants, Facilities staff, or the main office. Examples include broken windows, faulty doors, lock problems, missing screens, and fire safety equipment. Work orders can be submitted via the “ Fix My Home” online site, but work orders are only monitored during business hours. 
REPORT CRIMES IMMEDIATELY
If you are the victim of any crime or witness one in progress, report this to the Purdue University Police Department immediately! Never think that any crime is too small or too insignificant. You should also report all criminal activity to a Residential Life staff member so that he or she can take action to protect the welfare and property of other residents.
REPORTING SEXUAL CRIMES
Victims of sexual assault or other sexual crimes can receive assistance by contacting the  Purdue University Police Department. Individuals may also consult a Residential Life staff member to learn about university resources. For confidential assistance a person may visit Counseling & Psychological Services ( CAPS) or Center for Advocacy, Response & Education ( CARE).  Individuals may also get assistance in reporting options, remedial measures and support services through the  Office of Institutional Equity.​
REPORTING SEXUAL HARASSMENT
To learn about Sexual Harassment individuals can review university definitionsreporting options, and individuals who can be contacted for additional information.
SECURE PARKED CARS
Lock your doors and roll up your windows when parking your car. Keep valuables, especially book bags, laptops, airpods, and other electronic equipment out of sight.
STAY ALERT
Campus safety and security are everyone's responsibility. Your fellow residents depend on you to help keep their home safe. Our campus is only as safe as we make it. Do your part to keep Purdue secure. If you have any questions about safety and security in the University Residences or on campus, please contact your RA, residence management, club officers, or the Purdue University Police Department (PUPD) for more information. The PUPD site also contains yearly statistics about crimes reported on the West Lafayette campus.
WALKING ON CAMPUS

Although every effort is made to keep Purdue's campus a safe place, it is advisable to take simple precautions for your protection. When walking on or off campus at night, go with a friend. If you cannot walk with a friend, the Purdue Student Security Patrol provides security escorts upon request. The service is staffed by students and supervised by the Purdue University Police Department. Escorts are available on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. Escorts are available through the PUPD at other times upon request. Security escorts are provided to and from University Residences, academic campus, Chauncey Hill, the Village and other locations near campus. To request an escort, call 49-4SAFE (494-7233).

If you are walking on campus at night and an emergency should arise, there are many Emergency Telephone System (ETS) boxes located on campus. The boxes are painted bright yellow and illuminated with a blue light at night. When you walk on campus at night, even with friends, stay on well-lit paths. Some areas of West Lafayette between the central campus and the University Residences are dark, but there are well-lit, visible routes you can choose. An extra minute or two of walking time offers you more protection.

BOILER TV

University Residences operates its own cable TV system. All student rooms and apartments receive the service at no additional charge. There is no hook-up or disconnect fee, and the service will be connected when you check into your room.

  • You can check the current station listing by visiting BTV
  • Approximately 20 FM radio stations are also offered.
  • Most residences have one cable connector in each room.
  • If your TV is "cable-ready," you can connect your TV to the cable outlet using the connector and receive all available channels. This same connector can be used to connect most VCRs and DVDs to the cable outlet. If your TV is not cable-ready or if you want to connect both your TV and your stereo receiver to the outlet, you may need an adapter. Check with your RA if you need one. Most TVs that are not cable-ready will receive only channels 2–13, even with an adapter. Some electronics stores, however, sell converter boxes that allow non-cable-ready TVs to receive channels above channel 13.
  • For more information about BTV, visit the FAQ section of their page.

It is important to us that you have good reception on all channels. If you have reception problems, you may submit an electronic work order form via "Fix My Home Please", or ask your RA to fill out a repair request. There is no charge for repair calls to correct reception problems, even if your TV or stereo was connected incorrectly. There is a charge, however, if we discover that you have tampered with the building’s cable wiring. Repair services are available only during business hours Monday through Friday.

COMPUTERS

ResNet stands for Residential Networks and is the service that allows you to connect your personal devices to the campus network, either wirelessly with PAL3.0 or by using an industry standard Ethernet connection.

MAIL
Campus mail, which is free, is only for University business, not personal use. When you mail a letter or package via the U.S. Postal Service, use your full return address. Do not include "P.O." or "Box" in the return address of mailed items. Use all capital or block letters and no punctuation. It is highly recommended that cash never be sent through the mail system.
RECYCLING
University Residences maintains an easy single-stream recycling program that partners with Purdue’s Office of University Sustainability. Blue recycling containers are provided in each student room, and larger trash and recycling containers are located on each residence floor for easy sorting and deposit by residents. Please observe signs explaining which materials can be recycled: paper, cardboard, newspaper, plastic, glass, aluminum, etc... Large recycling roll-offs are also provided at each hall’s loading dock as well as at Hilltop Apartments and Purdue Village. Special effort is made by staff and students during move-in to recycle packing materials and during move-out to divert unwanted items for donation instead of landfill. For more information, see http://www.purdue.edu/sustainability/
REPAIRS & MAINTENANCE
University Residences staff conduct maintenance on a wide variety of building systems and living spaces, including your assigned room or apartment. Getting something fixed starts by notifying staff there is a problem. The easiest way to submit a work order is via the online “ Fix My Home” website. If your living space requires emergency maintenance, notify a Resident Assistant, Facilities staff, or the hall main office. We can’t fix it if we don’t know about it! There is no charge for routine repairs.

WALKING

Although every effort is made to keep Purdue's campus a safe place, it is advisable to take simple precautions for your protection. When walking on or off campus at night, go with a friend. If you cannot walk with a friend, the Purdue Student Security Patrol provides security escorts upon request. The service is staffed by students and supervised by the Purdue University Police Department. Escorts are available on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. Escorts are available through the PUPD at other times upon request. Security escorts are provided to and from University Residences, academic campus, Chauncey Hill, the Village and other locations near campus. To request an escort, call 49-4SAFE (494-7233).

Some areas of West Lafayette between the central campus and the University Residences are dark, but there are well-lit, visible routes you can choose. An extra minute or two of walking time offers you more protection.
