Green Mountain College's Residence Life program encourages students to develop independence, social responsibility and awareness of established community standards. Residential and off-campus students are responsible for knowledge of and adherence to all rules and regulations in the residence halls.
The Residence Life staff assists residents in making the most of their living-learning environment. The Residence Life staff consists of the Director of Residence Life and three Community Directors, who supervise student Resident Assistants (RAs.) Resident Assistants are selected upper-class students, specially trained in leadership and counseling skills, whose sole job is to develop tight-knit communities and address policy violations.
Green Mountain College is not responsible for any loss, theft, or damage to a student's personal property. It is recommended that students purchase a rider to a homeowner's or rental policy. Informational brochures are available in the Office of Student Life and the Office of Student Financial Services.
The following policies and procedures have been developed to create a sense of community awareness and social responsibility in the residence halls. As members of the residential community, students are required to adhere to these policies and procedures. Their signature on the Green Mountain College Housing Contract also legally obligates students.
Violation of any policy contained herein or violation of the Housing Contract may be charged formally through the student conduct system as a Residence Hall Policy violation, and depending on the outcome of the conduct hearing, sanctions may be assigned in accordance with the procedures outlined in the Student Conduct Code.
