In situations involving intoxication, alcohol poisoning, or drug-related medical issues, or medical issues resulting from intoxication, students are encouraged to seek swift medical assistance for themselves and others without fear of penalty. Students requesting and receiving medical assistance in these situations will not typically be subject to the student conduct process. This policy refers to isolated incidents and does not excuse students who repeatedly or flagrantly violate the alcohol or drug policy, nor does it preclude action arising from other violations of the Community Standards. University Residences will consider the positive impact of reporting a situation when determining any course of action.

Complainants and witnesses who in good faith report sexual violence will not be subject to alcohol or drug violations of the Residential Community Standards occurring at or near the time of sexual violence, unless their own conduct places another person's health or safety at risk. Without imposing sanctions, University Residences may initiate educational remedies regarding alcohol or drug use.
