About RISD's Residence Life Policies
note that some of these regulations pertain only to particular areas of
housing. In such cases, the applicable areas (the Quad, Hill Houses, 15 West,
etc.) will be specified. If not specifically delineated, the content of these
regulations apply to all residential facilities. The terms “residence hall,”
“housing,” and “residential facility” apply to all types of housing. In
addition to the following policies, resident students must abide by the
contents of the Residence Life & Dining Services Application/Contract.
These policies may be amended as necessary.
Landing residents must adhere to both these policies and the policies and
regulations detailed in the Mount Vernon Company Resident Handbook.
All of the requirements of the RISD Student Conduct Code also apply to
residents of Charles Landing.
It is essential that each student respect the privileges of all other
community members. Any behavior that interferes with the educational process,
disrupts, or otherwise infringes upon others’ ability to exercise the
privileges to which they are entitled will not be tolerated. Students who
behave in a consistently inconsiderate or immature manner can be as disruptive
as those who commit major violations of school policy. Please note that failure
to comply with the reasonable request of any RISD official is a serious offense
and will be treated as such.
In short, we expect all students
to conduct themselves in a manner supportive of community living and within the
limits set by institutional policies. In light of the number of resident
students and staffing limitations, please understand that students bear the
responsibility to comply with these and other guidelines, rules and
regulations. While rules and regulations seek to guide behavior and establish
safe and harmonious environments, the primary responsibility for safe behavior
rests with individual students.
