House Rules

Please note that all rules and regulations for the University Village community are noted in the HRE Resident Handbook. Please take note of these specific ones we have outlined below:

  • Masks/face coverings are required for everyone that is not vaccinated when entering our buildings and while inside. This also means in the common area of your apartment unless you and your roommates indicate on your roommate agreement (will be filled out with an RA during first week of classes).
  • Smoking is not allowed in the University Village community or anywhere on campus.
  • Alcohol is not allowed in University Village except in the graduate student wing in Peregrine Hall in rooms designated for that community.  Other than the designated rooms on the graduate wing, Residents and guests may not possess or consume alcohol in or around University Village.
  • Always keep your PNW ID and keys with you at all times.  YOU MUST SHOW YOUR ID EACH TIME YOU ENTER THE HALLS.  Lockouts can be very expensive for those who continuously forget their keys/cards.
  • Be courteous to your suite-mates and neighbors.  Keep in mind the type of learning environment you would like to live in.  Courtesy hours are in effect 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
  • Check your PNW email address and UV mailbox OFTEN!  UV residents are responsible for the correspondence that they receive in their mailboxes and PNW email addresses.
  • Be Civil.  Residents are expected to be respectful and civil to one another.  We can agree to disagree without violating civility standards.
  • Cooperation is expected and truly appreciated.  Residents are expected to follow the directives of student and full-time staff members during non-emergency and emergency situations.
  • Safety is important!  Residents may not prop open any exterior/security door of the UV community.  If you do choose to prop open your apartment or bedroom door, please ensure that your roommates agree and that someone is home and aware so that the safety of your living environment is not compromised.  During power outages, apartment doors are not allowed to be propped.
