The Student Code of Conduct sets out the standards of conduct expected of students. It holds individuals and groups responsible for the consequences of their actions. Failure to fulfill these responsibilities may result in the withdrawal of privileges or the imposition of sanctions.
The University is a community of students, faculty and staff involved in learning, teaching, research and other activities. In accordance with the UBC Respectful Environment Statement, all members of this community are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that contributes positively to an environment in which respect, civility, diversity, opportunity and inclusiveness are valued, so as to assure the success of both the individual and the community. The Student Code of Conduct reflects a concern for these values and tries to ensure that members of the University and the public can make use of and enjoy the activities, facilities and benefits of the University without undue interference from others.
The information provided on this website is an overview of the Student Code of Conduct. It is not, nor is it intended to be, a substitute for the Code itself or the University’s full policies and regulations regarding non-academic student misconduct. Students are responsible for reading, understanding and abiding by the Code. The entire Student Code of Conduct is available in the Policies and Regulations section of the UBC Vancouver Academic Calendar under Student Conduct and Discipline.
