Summer Camp Rules & Regulations

Fire Safety

Candles, incense, oil lamps, etc. are not permitted in the residence halls. These items produce an open flame or hotspot that produces smoke. They may inadvertently set off the smoke alarm system causing a false alarm. They may start a fire. You are encouraged to bring irons and curling irons that have an automatic turn off feature. No fireworks or grills are allowed in or around any residence life area. Motorized vehicles may not be parked at any location in or around the student residences other than authorized parking lots/spaces. Students are not allowed to bring halogen lamps into the residence halls. Halogen lamps burn up to 10 times hotter than an ordinary light bulb, causing a potential fire hazard.


Guests and residents are responsible for the furniture in their room; therefore, you should keep the furniture assigned to your room in your room. Using furniture from the floor lounges, laundry rooms, study rooms or other common areas for your room is not permitted and may result in a fine. In addition, College owned furniture is not allowed outside of the residence hall. All areas of campus (gyms, student center, residence halls, and cafeteria) must be left clean and in the same conditions as they were presented.

Hall Sports

Hall sports of any kind are not permitted within any residence hall. Hall sports include, but are not limited to: indoor basketball, indoor football, indoor Frisbee, "tag," "chase," golfing, wrestling, skateboarding, etc. We encourage you to enjoy these activities outdoors, at the Student Center or through organized activities.

Hazardous Materials

Hazardous materials including, but not limited to, gas, propane, chemicals, or gas grills are not permitted in on-campus housing under any circumstances.


You are given your key at check-in and are responsible for keeping it with you at all times. Should you lose your key, please contact your Camp Staff immediately. THERE WILL BE A FEE OF $75.00 ASSESSED AS A LOCK CHANGE CHARGE. If you are locked out of your room, contact your Camp Staff that serves your residence hall.


Residents are expected to use discretion where noise is concerned both in and around the student residences. Therefore, excessive noise is prohibited at all times. Courtesy hours are always in effect, and residents and guests are asked to be considerate of other's rights to sleep. During these hours the environment is to be one that is conducive to studying. Loud stereos, gathering in hallways, and other disturbances will not be allowed. If stereos are played out of windows, or are a problem in any area around the residence halls, owners risk removal of the stereo from the residence hall and may be held accountable for the expense of having their equipment boxed and shipped off campus. Due to the nature of these instruments, DRUMS AND AMPLIFIED GUITARS are not permitted in any on-campus housing. Quiet Hours in most residence hall areas are 10:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m., Noise, including talking, music, and other miscellaneous sounds must be kept at a minimum level so that they cannot be heard in other's rooms. If a resident has a problem with noise, the first step is to talk to the resident or guest(s) who are creating the noise. If the noise continues after a resident has confronted the situation, your Camp Staff should be contacted.

Personal Property

Reinhardt University assumes no liability for damage or loss of personal property. You are encouraged to purchase property insurance. Remember, the easiest way to avoid loss to your belongings is to keep your room locked when you are not there and when you are asleep!

Personal Safety

Residents should not engage in activities that might place themselves or others at risk of bodily harm. This involves, but is not limited to, activities such as throwing things out of windows, sitting on window ledges, entering onto any roof areas, or the use of bicycles, rollerblades or skateboards within any College building. These behaviors may result in administrative room change or termination of a student's housing agreement based upon the severity of the incident.

Posting Policy

Signs, banners or any other type of item may not be attached to any College residence facility, tree, or shrubbery without written approval from the Office of Student Housing and Residence Life. This policy also covers items that might be hung for display in windows or balconies of any student residence. If you hang signs, balloons, or decorations anywhere on Campus, please be sure to remove them before you depart.


Reinhardt University is a smoke-free campus as it applies to all academic and student support buildings. This means that smoking is not permitted in buildings at any time. Evidence of smoking in a student room is sufficient for a student to be held accountable for violating this policy. Violators of the smoke-free guidelines also will be held accountable for their action. The student residences also follow this smoke-free policy. Smoking within the student residences is not permitted. Common lounges, hallways, stairwells and laundry facilities are all non-smoking areas, and in front of the residence halls. Students who violate this policy are subject to disciplinary action. Smokers are expected to dispose of their cigarettes in appropriate receptacles. Fines and possible conduct referrals will result from littering in and around any residence life area.


The possession of any dangerous instrument on campus is prohibited. These include, but are not limited to, any gun, rifle, pistol or other firearm (whether operable or inoperable, loaded or unloaded), dynamite cartridge, bomb, grenade, mine, incendiary or explosive device, BB gun, air rifle, air pistol, firecracker, knife, dirk, dagger, slingshot, leaded cane switchblade knife, blackjack, metallic knuckles, razor and razor blades (except solely for personal shaving) or any device which may readily be used as a weapon or to inflict or cause harm to any person or structure. Likewise, metal darts and dartboards are prohibited as well. Any resident found in violation will be subject to disciplinary action, and possible legal action as well. Disciplinary action may include immediate removal from the residence halls and loss of all housing privileges. Residents and guests removed from the campus for disciplinary reasons will be responsible for the entire rental cost of the housing agreement period.


Damages to student rooms or facilities are the responsibility of the camp/conference.  It is the camp/conference responsibility to decide how to deal with their room guests.
