Residence Life Policies

All student residents will adhere to the policies outlined in the Residence Hall Policy Agreement. Student residents are expected to understand and follow all policies. For most students, living on campus will be a new experience and is generally different from living at home. TOCC Residence Life places a high priority on students’ safety and health. All TOCC campuses are alcohol-free, tobacco-free, drug-free, and weapon-free environments.The policies were created to protect residents’ emotional, physical, and mental wellbeing.

Checking Into Your New Home

Have your TOCC student ID card or Photo ID ready. You will not be able to check in to your residence hall without one. Students will also not be allowed to move in without showing proof they have paid the damage deposit and key deposit. Students who plan to continue staying in the dorm from fall to spring semesters may not have to pay the damage deposit and key deposit for spring based on the condition of their dorm suite.
