Some Legal Aspects of Campus Housing.
Moore, Donald R.
Legal aspects and implications affecting college and university housing administration are unpredictable, unsettled, and subject to change. The complete practical guide to the everyday legal answers for campus housing simply does not exist. This document presents some specific legal considerations involved in housing that may affect the management roles of housing officers. The topics are discussed by a recent graduate of the Tulane Law School who was a student member of the Housing Office staff, and a junior in the Tulane Law School who is a student advisor in housing. The specific areas covered are: (1) the validity of a housing contract signed by a minor; (2) legal responsibility of student staff for acts of negligence; (3) legal responsibility for storage of students' belongings; (4) search and seizure in residence halls; (5) curfews in women's dormitories; (6) responsibility for unauthorized visitors and casual travelers in campus residence halls; and (7) responsibility for theft of personal property in campus housing.
