Off-Campus Housing

The Becker College Office of Residence Life and Student Conduct has paired with JUMPOFFCAMPUS to provide students and landlords with a great experience.  Landlords can post and maintain listings with pictures and all amenities included, and students will have a visual and easy way to find local listings.   Happy Hunting!

Off-Campus Misconduct

While Becker College has a primary duty to supervise student behavior within its campuses, there are many circumstances where the off-campus behavior of students warrants disciplinary action. The Good Neighbor Policy was created to be consistent with the educational role of Becker College, the rights and needs of all residents, local municipal ordinances, and standards of common courtesy. The policy is directed toward encouraging and maintaining positive relationships with the College’s neighbors and developing each student’s understanding of responsible citizenship.

The Good Neighbor Policy is stated in the Student Handbook as follows:

Students who reside in or visit the Becker College neighborhood are expected to demonstrate respect and concern for all of the local community. Becker College expects students to demonstrate responsible citizenship in the local neighborhood. All of the following behaviors and any action related to these behaviors will not be tolerated:

Excessive noise, hosting large parties, serving minors, harassment of neighbors, public drinking, public urination, damaging or stealing of property, disorderly conduct, and/or any other College policy violation that presents Becker College in a negative manner.

Any student found in violation of the Good Neighbor Policy will be subject to disciplinary action, which could jeopardize academic standing with Becker College.

Be a Good Neighbor

  • Introduce yourself to your neighbors who share the same building with you, as well as those who live adjacent to you. Share your phone number with them so that they can contact you if there is an issue.
  • Be respectful of your neighbor’s property.
  • Don’t trespass on your neighbors property (no short-cuts through their yard, don’t take anything from their property, and don’t use or block their driveway)
  • Be respectful of your neighbors pets.  If you have a pet, keep it off the neighbor’s property. Clean up after your pet when walking in the neighborhood.
  • Respect your neighbor’s right to peace and privacy.

Tips for Hosting Guests Off Campus

  • Know the noise ordinance laws-your neighbors do!
  • Be considerate and tell your neighbors when you are having a party.
  • Keep your gathering under control, including loud noise/music.
  • Make sure your guests do not trespass on your neighbor’s property for any reason.
  • Make sure your guests do not park on your neighbor’s yard or in their driveway.
  • Ask uninvited guests to leave and call local law enforcement if they refuse.
  • Clean up immediately after the gathering.
  • Do not throw trash in your neighbor’s yard or on the sidewalk/street.
  • If alcohol is being served, you and your guests must be of legal drinking age.
