Enforcement of the Rules of Conduct

Anyone violating these rules is first warned by the SRC staff member in charge of the SRC at the time of the offense. If the conduct continues the offender will be ordered to leave the premises. Staff members, at their discretion, will expel patrons without a warning in situations of serious, threatening, or willfully malicious behavior. Failure to observe these rules may lead to a revocation of SRC privileges, including the right to visit the buildings and grounds. Repeat offenders or persons ordered from the premises who do not comply may be subject to arrest and prosecution for trespassing. Anyone wishing to appeal his or her exclusion may submit an appeal in writing to the SRC Director.
