Residents in any hall are expected to abide by the federal, state, and local laws, as well as university policies regarding alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs.  The Wellness/Substance Free Floor option offers an additional measure of support for individuals who choose not to drink, smoke, or use other drugs (also implying illegal prescription drug use).  Residents and their guests agree to keep rooms, common areas, and public spaces free from substances including, but may not be limited to alcohol, tobacco products, and other drugs.

Students who live on these floors must sign an agreement stating that they will not drink alcohol, smoke, or use illegal or illicit substances on the floor. For more information, contact the Office of Residence Life, Housing, and Community Standards at or 973-408-3394.
