Off-Campus Student Expectations
Students who live off-campus are expected to conduct themselves in
accordance with the Millikin University Student Handbook and the Code of
Conduct. Violations of University policy, whether on or off-campus,
will be met with student conduct action.
The Office of Residence Life
follows a simple "three strikes" policy for off-campus students. If the
University fields 3 or more complaints regarding an off-campus student
and/or their address, off-campus approval will be revoked and each
individual will be responsible for payment of the off-campus living fee.
We encourage off-campus residents to be aware of their role as a
neighbor in the Decatur community and to respect the privilege of living
within that community. We caution students about engaging in activities
or hosting events that may endanger themselves or their peers. We
expect all Millikin students to conduct themselves with integrity and
Once a student has been approved to live-off campus, they are required to attend two mandatory safety sessions where they will learn skills to be safe traveling to and from campus, securing their residence, and fire safety. These meetings are held each spring and fall. Students unable to attend a session may have private meeting with a Residence Life staff member to fulfill the requirement.
