At Lock Haven, there is a zero tolerance policy for alcohol and drugs on campus. The RAs will report any suspicion of these items and call campus police. If students lose their dorm key, they will be charged with replacing it. All residence halls and apartments are considered to be nonsmoking areas. If any student wants to have a visitor stay over, the visitor must bring photo identification, register at the front desk, and keep a slip of paper with them at all times. The visitor also can’t enter the dormitories without the resident being with him or her. In terms of other dorm rules, “quiet hours” is a time set aside for minimal noise within a hall and will be set by each residence hall council.
Alcohol is not permitted on University property. Being caught intoxicated or even suspected of being intoxicated can result in dismissal from the University. Campus police patrol on-campus areas regularly and keep everything in order. Typically, RAs are assigned duty periods during which they must patrol a residence hall or campus area to ensure that any maintenance issues or other incidents are addressed. Depending on which dormitory you're assigned, the RA can range from being your best friend to your worst nightmare. Just don't get on their bad side because they have a lot of power when it comes down to dorm authority.
