Violation of Housing Rules and Regulations
The AUD Code of Student Conduct (as outlined in the AUD Student Handbook) is applicable to all AUD students, regardless of their choice to live on or off campus.

In addition, AUD has established specific guidelines and community expectations for standards of behavior that must be followed when living on campus. These guidelines are outlined below, and it is the responsibility of the students to acquaint themselves with these rules, to avoid violation points, and subsequent disciplinary action, which may result in dismissal from student housing, as well as the university, in some cases.
Students will be given violation points for each infraction of the student housing rules. The point value for each violation will be determined by the Administration. The maximum number of points for any one violation is 10.
Should a student receive a total of 10 points, he or she will be dismissed from Student Housing and possibly from AUD depending on the offence. A parental notification letter accompanies all housing dismissals.

Assigned violation points are carried for three semesters (Summer I and Summer II count as one).
Example: Student A is assigned five points during Spring 2013 and four points during Summer II 2013. The points that student A acquired in Spring 2013 will be deleted by the beginning of Spring 2014. Points acquired in Summer II 2013 will return to zero in Summer II 2014.
Example: Student A is assigned five points during Spring 2007 and four points during Summer II 2007. Student A’s points do not return to 0 until the beginning of Spring 2008.

Readmission of Dismissed Students to AUD Housing
Explanation of Violation Points
  1. The Housing Manager must be notified in writing of any and all items in need of repair.
  2. The Housing Manager must be given 24 hours advance written notice if a resident on curfew wishes to spend the night outside AUD Student Housing.
  3. If a resident loses a key, he or she is responsible for the cost of changing the door lock cylinder. Each time the key is lost, AED200 will be charged for the replacement. Students should not lend their keys to anyone. Students must return their keys at the end of the term. No exceptions will be made.
  4. Residents wishing to move out of the student accommodation must give written notice to the Housing Manager at least two weeks before their anticipated departure date. During the checkout process, all personal belongings must be removed from the residence facilities; and the resident must return keys to the Housing Division.
  5. There is no guarantee that a resident will retain the same room from term to term. If at all possible, efforts will be made to ensure that students keep the same room. Residents will be assigned rooms according to the date of receipt of all Housing Materials.
  6. Residents can stay free of charge in their rooms between semesters provided that they have paid for the next semester. The only exception is for the December break. Only residents whose homes are outside the UAE can stay in the housing during this period.
  7. Students staying after the checkout deadline date will be charged AED500.
  8. Residents who have not paid for the next semester may not stay beyond the last day of checkout. Residents are not permitted to leave behind any of their belongings in the room they were occupying or anywhere on the AUD campus.
  9. A storage company will pack and remove the resident's belongings and store them at its warehouse for a limited period. The period will be determined by the amount of money left in the resident's security deposit. When the security deposit has been depleted, all the belongings will be donated to charities.
In all cases, the Housing Division will be obliged to undertake the following procedures:
  • A storage company will pack and remove the resident’s belongings and store them at its warehouse for a limited period; the period will be determined by the amount of money left in the resident’s security deposit. When the security deposit has been depleted, all the belongings will be donated to charity;
  • AUD takes no responsibility for any items stored, lost, or stolen from the premises and will not make any arrangements either to deliver belongings in Dubai or to ship them back to the resident’s country of residence.
There are occasions when the rights and responsibilities inherent in living in a collaborative, community environment lead to conflicts between residents. AUD firmly believes that students share a role in the daily operation and collaborative environment of the AUD housing. By subscribing to a set of community behavioral courtesies, each student takes responsibility for his or her own actions, thus contributing to reducing friction and conflicts.
Note: The American University in Dubai reserves the right to amend or add to the above regulations at any time without prior notice. While the University will do everything in its power to provide a safe and secure housing environment, it cannot be held liable for the acts of others.
The responsibility for a successful collaborative learning environment is a shared effort among the AUD Housing Manager, Resident Assistants, and residents. It is built on respect for the rights and responsibilities of all involved parties that comprise different nationalities, cultures, and ethnic groups. These community behavioral courtesies are essential for successful community living situations:
  1. Housing residents should make a concentrated effort to be friendly and helpful to one another. This involves taking the time to learn about one another;
  2. Residents should show tolerance for differing cultural practices, living styles, and food preferences;
  3. Flexibility and adaptability should be part of every resident’s vocabulary and actions;
  4. Any resident who is responsible for a violation of courtesies needs to accept responsibility for his or her own actions and institute behavioral changes;
  5. Residents should also accept responsibility for informing other residents of behaviors that are annoying and/or infringing upon the rights of members of the community;
  6. Noise should be kept to a minimally accepted level. Excessive noise should be avoided;
  7. All residents should strive to practice good kitchen hygiene. This includes, but is not limited to, the following:
    • Disposing of all uneaten food and trash;
    • Washing dishes, pots, pans, glassware, and kitchen utensils;
    • Wiping off and sanitizing cooking, eating, and food preparation surfaces;
    • Labeling all food items and disposing of items past expiration date
    • Please note that the fridge in each kitchen is emptied every Saturday. Students should ensure they pick up all items they do not wish discarded.
  8. If students are waiting to watch a television program, the current viewer has the right to view the end of the show in progress. The next student waiting has the right to select the next television show and watch it until completion.
