Thank you for choosing to live on campus at Cumberland University. As a resident in one of
our residence halls, you will be part of a community. We encourage you to take advantage
of the opportunities to join in the activities offered across campus and to build friendships
with other on-campus residents. As a member of a community, you will be responsible for
observing community standards and rules, as they are outlined here and in university and
residence life policies. We ask that you respect the privacy of other residents, as we work
together to build a community that is safe, cohesive and accommodating.
