Housing & Residence Life provides furnished rooms and common areas for all residents living in campus housing. The following policies are to be adhered to regarding residence hall furniture.
Bicycles must be registered (free service) and are not permitted to be stored in the residence halls.

Go online to the Daytona Beach Online Parking Registration page to register your bicycle for free.
Lease-A-Lock Program: High-security bike and motorcycle locks may be leased for an indefinite period of time from Safety Services (Student Union). When used properly, these locks offer much more protection against theft than ordinary chain or cable locks. When the lock and key are returned in working condition, the full deposit will be refunded.
A student or a group of students who are aware of illegal activities, violations of the Honor Code, and/or policy (including Housing & Residence Life Community Standards) violations and do nothing to prevent, stop, or report it are in violation of the Honor Code. Confidential reports can be filed with Campus Safety & Security or the Dean of Students Office.
It is the responsibility of the resident to maintain a clean and healthy environment in their assigned room and bathroom, additionally supporting the community by respecting one another and keeping common areas and lounges clean when in use. Cleaning services provided by the University are intended to maintain the facility and are there to augment daily cleaning by the residents. Any scheduled cleaning services cannot be refused.
Trash is to be disposed of in designated locations and is not permitted to pile/collect in rooms. Additionally, trash receptacles provided by the University in trash rooms and hallways are not to be moved into resident suites/rooms.
Residents diagnosed with a communicable disease that poses a health threat to other residents may be relocated to an alternate room on campus until determined to no longer be contagious. Staff will make every effort to maintain privacy of a resident who has knowledge of testing positive for any communicable disease. The temporary relocation process may be initiated by University staff or by resident disclosure. Residents are encouraged to seek medical assistance to maintain their health and wellbeing and that of the community.

Residence halls are the property of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. Therefore, the University reserves the right to enter and/or search residence hall rooms and common areas for the purposes of inventory, fire protection, sanitation, health and safety, maintenance, and enforcement of policies and regulations. To preserve the resident’s privacy, other than routine room inspections, searches are conducted only when reasonable belief has been established that a Housing & Residence Life regulation/policy or state/federal statute has been violated. These regulations and policies may include, but are not limited to, alcohol, drugs, sexual misconduct, theft, and weapons. After reasonable belief has been established, the procedure for searching a room is as follows:
Information and instructions will be communicated to students from the University via RAVE alert system, campus outdoor siren, University email, and/or ERNIE/Embry-Riddle website.
Shelter-in-Place: Shelter-in-place is used for any type of emergency where it is safer to secure yourself in the current location. The situation may be weather-related or because of a hostile situation. If in the residence halls, safely and quickly proceed to an area without windows/glass (typically interior halls and bathrooms) until the advisory is lifted and communicated by the University.
Follow all University instructions until an all-clear is given by a University official.
See the Campus Safety & Security Quick Reference Guide for more information.

Those alleged to have violated this policy are subject to the student conduct process and having their tobacco/nicotine products confiscated.
Unless otherwise indicated all rooms are double occupancy. If after the room change and consolidation period a vacancy exists in a room, the Department considers that bed space available for use. It is imperative that vacant spaces are kept clean, empty, and move-in-ready to welcome a new resident. This includes leaving all university-provided furniture clear of belongings. When possible the Department will notify residents of new roommates, however there may be times when notification does not occur. Residents may not deliberately intimidate, reject, and/or discourage potential roommates from occupying the vacancy.
