While serving as the primary point for student conduct issues, the Office of Judicial Affairs can also serve as a link between individual students, student government, and the various academic and administrative offices of the university. We network with University departments and programs to provide clarity on university protocols, policies and rules.
The Office of Judicial Affairs receives its authority from the Laws of the Regents as provided for in the Colorado Revised Statutes. The Laws of the Regents state that, "By enrolling as a student in the university, a person shall assume obligations of performances and behavior established by the university relevant to its lawful missions, processes, and functions. For allegations of student misconduct, the chancellor or designee shall prescribe procedures for the determination of facts, findings, and assessment of remedies. These procedures shall contain the basic elements of procedural due process."
The Student Code of Conduct
The purpose of the Student Code of Conduct is to maintain the general welfare of the university community. The university strives to make the campus community a place of study, work, and residence where people are treated, and treat one another, with respect and courtesy. The university views the student conduct process as a learning experience that can result in growth and personal understanding of one's responsibilities and privileges within both the university community and the greater community. All students must follow these standards. Students who violate these standards will be subject to the actions described below. These procedures are designed to provide fairness to all who are involved in the conduct process.
It is the goal of the Office of Judicial Affairs for all students to fully understand their rights and responsibilities throughout the student conduct process. This starts at Orientation through discussions about the responsibilities of all members of the University Community and to information and programs during the academic year. At all conduct meetings, students are presented all necessary information for them to make informed decisions about the process.

Assuring total security is not possible for the University. Many benefits such as limited-access entrance doors, Resident Assistants and professional staff members on duty, a night Security Guard, Public Safety staff, and the University Police patrolling the campus are provided to assist in security measures. Access to any residential facility is controlled through an electronic door access system. The UCCS Student ID is programmed to allow access to these facilities. University staff and maintenance workers may be granted access to the residential halls in the course of their duties. A guest may access any residential facility if a housing resident accompanies them. The resident is responsible for escorting their guest(s) at all times, and for explaining housing rules and regulations to each guest.
