Residence Life Policies

Residence Hall policies are set and enforced for the benefit and well-being of all community members. The residence hall regulations are concerned with the application of the Honor Principle in the non-academic area, and pertain to all students living in Residence Halls, their guests and dependents. Infractions of these regulations shall be handled by the Resident Assistant, the Director of Residence Life, and/or Honor Council.


Within the residence halls, student staff members are selected and trained to serve for the academic year as Resident Assistants (RAs). RAs carry out a broad range of responsibilities in the areas of peer counseling, conflict resolution, mediation, community-based programming, policy enforcement, crisis management and community development. They make appropriate referrals when necessary and act as a resource for residential students.


A Hall Senator represents each residential unit in the Student Senate. Senators provide one of the several channels for students to voice opinions and make suggestions to the Wilson College Government Association. Hall Senators also serve on Residence Council to address community concerns and communicate information to residents. Residence Hall rules and regulations are evaluated regularly by Residence Council and Residence Life staff.
