Off Campus Behavior

Temple University expects that student conduct themselves with honesty, integrity, civility, and citizenship both on and off campus. The university is committed to assisting neighborhood residents and students are expected to prevent and respond to disruptive incidents that may arise from student behavior in the local community.

Seriously disruptive behavior includes, but is not limited to:

  • Excessive and/or unreasonable noise
  • Large disruptive activities
  • Illegal use, sale, and/or distribution of alcohol or other drugs
  • Trash
  • Rude and abusive language
  • Public urination or related violations of local community standards

Disciplinary investigation and charges will be initiated when the university becomes aware of such behavior in the surrounding community.

As citizens in the neighborhood and leasers of property, students must at in a proactive manner to decrease the likelihood of seriously disruptive behavior in and around their homes by choosing carefully those who share their lease and those who are guests.

Students must clearly communicate expectations of roommates and guests and take steps when those expectations are not met.

Referrals about negative behavior can be referred to Student Conduct and Community Standards.
