University of Portland Student Handbook

Residence Hall Policies and Information

Exterior of Shipstad Hall.

The University lives out its mission of teaching and learning, faith and formation, service and leadership, in its residence halls. In these communities that we promote mutual respect, faith development, and service to fellow hall members and the University community at large. All students living in residence halls are called to grow in communal responsibility, spiritual development, and leadership. As students discover opportunities for intellectual, social, emotional, spiritual, and physical development, they truly receive an education of the mind and the heart.

The residence halls at the University of Portland are the cornerstone of our community and the places where education of the mind and the heart takes root. In order to maintain residence hall communities that are safe and secure homes for all whom live there, residents and guests must follow certain housing policies and expectations. In addition to abiding by University policies and standards of conduct, students living in or visiting residence halls must be aware of and abide by the following policies and expectations. Failure to do so may lead to action under the student conduct process.
