Code of Student Conduct

The Code of Student Conduct is intended to give special attention to creating a safe living and learning environment dedicated to academic exploration and personal growth. As a student you are expected to maintain high standards of personal conduct and participate actively in fostering the well being of this unique educational community. The policies are grounded in a learning process that can result in a personal understanding of our community values. It is your responsibility to familiarize yourself with the policies and procedures of the Code of Student Conduct. Doing so can help prevent unneeded disciplinary actions. We are glad to have you in this community and we hope you will take full advantage of al UMass Amherst has to offer.

In addition to support from the Dean of Students Office, there are organizations on campus available to assist you. The Student Legal Services Office and SGA Judicial Advisers will work with you through the process.


All students living in or visiting University residence halls are expected to comply with the Residence Hall Community Standards.
