Standards for Conduct
Students living on campus are expected to know and abide by the University Student Conduct Code, which pertains to all students. More specifically, on-campus residents must know and abide by specific expectations, related to on-campus living. These are described in the Policies under Misconduct related to the Department of Residence in the Student Conduct Code.

University Student Conduct Code 
The Student Conduct Code is grounded in a commitment to three core values:

  1. Respect: University of Northern Iowa students support the rights of individuals to live and work with each other in a safe environment reflective of the educational ideals of the University. 

  2. Responsibility: University of Northern Iowa students engage in responsible social conduct that reflects positively upon the University community, while modeling good citizenship in all communities. 

  3. Honesty: University of Northern Iowa students live a life of integrity, creating good leaders, friends and colleagues who sare the common goal of building our learning community. 

In order to support these core values all students and student organizations are responsible for knowing the information, policies, and procedures outlined in the Student Conduct Code

When incidents happen and University of Northern Iowa students are involved, the Office of the Dean of Students is the main university entity that works with students to resolve disciplinary matters. Students, faculty, and staff who believe there has been a violation can contact our office to discuss options available for reporting incidents or can report the allegation of student misconduct here

The Office of the Dean of Students is located in 118 Gilchrist Hall along with the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs
