Housing Violations and Sanctions

A notice will be given to the student, student’s resident advisor, and appropriate university official. The notification of the violation will be delivered to the student’s university e-mail address or housing application email.

The notification of violation should include information about meeting with a University and/or IGC Housing official to discuss the violation in person and possible sanctions. The meeting should be scheduled within 14 calendar days of the housing violation notice. Failure to respond to the violation will result in admitting guilt and acceptance of the sanction.

Notification of the sanction will be given after meeting with university and/or IGC Housing official or failure to respond to the violation within 14 days. Sanctions are determined by the IGC Housing Office after consultation with the University and can include one or more of the following:
  • Penalty Point
  • Apology Letter
  • Community Service with IGC Housing Office
  • Financial restitution (In case of Housing Property Damage)
  • Semester eviction
During the time period of the housing violation, students are allowed to stay in the Housing unless their presence constitutes an immediate threat to themselves or others.

IGC and the university reserves the right to make it a permanent ban depending on the severity of the violation.
