Bethel University reserves the right to fine a student for behavior detrimental to the living environment such as water fights, vandalism, excessive noise, stealing lounge furniture, leaving trash in the hallways, or other disrespectful actions. Discipline problems will be dealt with through the normal Disciplinary Policy and Procedure. Fines may be incurred if the Office of Residence Life feels it is necessary. It should be noted that housing policies are intended to assist the community in smooth operations, to protect the rights of students, and to prevent dangerous or unhealthy situations. As such, students need to abide by the policies established in the Student Handbook, the university catalog, and the housing agreement. It is hoped that these policies will not be seen as restrictive, but rather as common courtesies necessary to live harmoniously in the community.
