The Office of Residence Life and Community Standards

Working in partnership with students and collaboratively with other members of the UArts community, the Office of Residence Life and Community Standards (RLCS) strives to provide a safe, inclusive and supportive campus environment which complements and extends the educational and creative experience of students.


With a student-centered approach, programs and services are developed and provided with an emphasis on community and individual development. These efforts help to foster a spirit of mutual respect within a diverse and dynamic community. RLCS seeks to create an educational environment that promotes holistic wellness to create a caring, engaged and responsible community.

Community: Nurturing our vibrant UArts community that holds accountability and participation at the center. Our diverse communal living environment fosters interdependence, meaningful relationships and a sense of belonging. 

Personal Development: Empowering students through formative experiences to gain life lessons and helpful skills for self discovery and personal responsibility. 

Respect: Promoting healthy and civil interactions that are inclusive, open and honest dialogue, and through finding restorative and solution based practices when there are differences. 

Wellness: Prioritizing all students’ holistic care and well being, including access to campus resources and support networks.
