J33-103 Authorized Entry and Search
When a staff member has reasonable cause to believe that a student has violated a university policy and relevant or prohibited materials remain in his or her room or suite, a request may be made for an authorized entry and search. The request will be directed to the appropriate student affairs staff member, who will then inform the vice president for student affairs and university planning. After considering the request, the vice president for student affairs and university planning may give a written or verbal authorization to conduct an authorized entry and search of a student’s room or suite for specified items. An authorized entry and search form will then be filled out by the appropriate student affairs staff member. A copy of the completed form will be given to the residents of the room or suite if they are present. In the event that the vice president for student affairs is not available, the appropriate student affairs and university planning staff member should contact the director of residence life, who will then contact the president of the university or the designated representative.
