Residence Code of Conduct
Residence is a community of students who have a common purpose in educational advancement and personal development.

Lakeland College's residence community standards policy provides all residents with a fair process of resolving incidents of misbehaviour. The residence discipline policy covers behaviour that occurs within residence or the areas adjacent to the residence complex including the residence parking lots.

Living in residence is much more than just occupying a room. It is living in a community that includes individuals with different national, racial, ethnic and social backgrounds. It includes individuals with a broad spectrum of religious and political beliefs and individuals with different sexual orientations and gender identities. Within residence, we believe in mutual respect. By working and living together, we learn from one another and strive toward an atmosphere of positive contact. Every community member has the right to live in an environment free from harassment and unfair treatment. Bigotry has no place within our community and no one has the right to degrade another human being. We are committed to maintaining and promoting a healthy and diverse community. All residents are accountable for their own behaviour.
