Notice: as we continue to consult with university leaders and public health officials to create thoughtful plans for more in-person services for the fall, we continue to maintain a no guest policy at this time, including no visitors, guests, or other residents in your personal bedroom (only essential service providers such as maintenance staff or your immediate family if they are helping you move out).

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.

Learn about some of the most common conduct violations.
