Residential Code of Conduct

Notice: The state of California is currently under a shelter in place order. To comply with that order, all residents must follow physical distancing (also known as social distancing) guidelines, including no visitors, guests or other residents in your personal bedroom (only essential service providers are permitted such as maintenance staff or your immediate family if they are helping you move out). If there is a conflict between the Residential Code of Conduct and the shelter in place order, you must adhere to the shelter in place order while it is in effect.

The Residential Code of Conduct covers topics on everything from alcohol use to disruptive behavior to threats to safety and verbal harassment, and even key use and posting flyers. Residents are accountable for knowing and adhering to both the UC Berkeley Student Code of Conduct and the Residential Code of Conduct, which is a subset of the Berkeley code.
