Health and Safety Process Outline

 

Each month, Health and Safety Inspections are conducted for each room in the University Village. Health and Safety Inspections consist of a short, visual check of each suite for issues that may impact the general health and safety of the University Village and its residents.  Each inspection is conducted in pairs, and all doors will be locked by housing staff after the inspection has occurred. On the date of inspections, Resident Assistants will check each suite for health and safety issues, maintenance concerns, and policy violations.

In the event that a health and safety issue is discovered, Resident Assistants will document the issue and leave an inspection slip for residents notifying them of what should be fixed.   

If the resident failed Health and Safety Inspections, the resident will be referred to the Resident Conduct Process. At this point, a hearing will be conducted by a conduct officer at the University Village. If the resident is found responsible, fines will be issued as follows: First Offense is $100.00, Second Offense is $200.00, Third Offense is $300.00. Further offenses may include other conduct sanctions up to and including separation from housing.

In the event that a maintenance issue is discovered, Resident Assistants will document the issue and report it to maintenance/facilities staff at the University Village. A member of UV facilities will come by at their earliest convenience to repair the issue.

In the event that a policy violation is discovered, Resident Assistants will document the issue and report it to the appropriate housing staff. Certain policy violations will require further attention from Administrative Staff, or PUCPD. In addition, residents in violation of University Village policies will be referred to the Resident Conduct Process. A hearing will be scheduled with a conduct officer at the University Village and if the resident is found responsible for the policy violation, fines may be applied to a resident’s student account. For a full list of University Village policies, please refer to the Resident Handbook.
