Student Rights and Responsibilities

Student membership at the University of Guelph is associated with fundamental rights and responsibilities intended to maintain the integrity of the University as a community for learning. Staff, faculty and students co-operate to sustain an education environment that promotes individual learning and development.

The University accepts that students are able to make responsible decisions regarding their behaviour. These regulations help to provide for an environment that supports personal and intellectual growth. They are intended to recognize a student's rights and the rights of others, while also identifying certain responsibilities of students that are a part of the exercise of these rights.

For purposes of Student Rights and Responsibilities, a student is any person registered in an undergraduate or graduate program at the University of Guelph, or otherwise taking credit or non-credit courses offered by the University or any person who was a student at the time the alleged offence occurred.

Students have the RIGHT to access the Judicial system if a violation of this policy has occurred, whether that violation has occurred on or off campus provided that the violation affects their ability to use and enjoy University facilities.
