Allegations regarding other off campus conduct may be brought forward under this Policy if the violation in question materially affects the safety, integrity or educational interests of the University community or as provided under the Community Standards Protocol.
  4. Alleged breaches of this Policy which arise within University residences may in the discretion of Student Housing Services, proceed under the Residence Community Living Standards.
  5. Alleged breaches of this Policy which arise at the regional campuses will be subject to the process and procedures specific to the regional campuses.
