Guide to Residential Life

Welcome to the Guide to Residence Hall Living: Policies & Procedures! The University of Louisiana Monroe (ULM) and the Residential Life staff are ready to make your college experience everything you have always wanted it to be and more. This guide will provide you with answers to many of your questions. However if you find yourself in need of additional assistance, we expect and encourage you to contact the ULM Department of Residential Life. The purpose of this guide is to serve as a resource and provide detailed information needed by you while you reside on campus.

The Department of Residential Life strives to create a quality living environment that will enhance citizenship, responsibility, and leadership.  We provide numerous tools to help you become a part of the larger community and explore your distinctive identity.  The staff is continuously developing new and innovative initiatives to assist you in reaching your academic goals and help prepare you to successfully join the ever-expanding global economy.

By accepting a housing offer and moving in, you are expected to live by the rules, regulations, and policies which the University has set. If you disagree with the institution's policies or regulations, we encourage you to motivate change through the appropriate supervisory channels. If you cannot change them and still cannot live with them, then on-campus living may not be for you.

While this guide is an important reference for living on-campus, it is also expected that you will be familiar with the following University publications:

The Guide to Residence Hall Living contains information on policies and procedures that will be semesterly revised and changes may be made, as deemed necessary by the Department of Residential Life Operations, the Office of Auxiliary Enterprise Administration, or the Division of Student Affairs.
