HOUSING STANDARDS

Navarro College Residence Life/Housing is committed to promoting positive behavior and expects others to behave in ways that are demonstrated by our community. We believe that we are individually and collectively responsible for our behavior and fully accountable for our actions. We must take initiative and responsibility for our own learning and awareness of the differences that exist in our community and avoid all actions that can negatively impact others. We are committed to these principles that are an integral part of our purpose, values and daily activities.

Please read the list of policies and procedures. If you have any questions about the following policies, please feel free to contact the Residence Life/Housing Office and visit with a professional staff member.

Disciplinary Point System – all Residence Life violations are assessed by the Disciplinary Point System. If a resident accumulates any combination of six disciplinary points in one academic year, he/she will be removed from the Residence Life program for no less than one academic year.

Loitering in the Residence Life area after 10 p.m. is not allowed seven days a week. Quiet hours begin at 10 p.m. to 10 a.m. and are intended to give residents a period of solitude each day in order to rest and study. Quiet hours can be enforced at any time when deemed necessary.
