Conduct Expectations

As part of the pre-orientation requirements, you must watch a video about Orientation Conduct Expectations and agree to abide by these expectations:

  • Attend all orientation activities. If you miss or arrive late to a required session, you may not be able to register for classes at your designated time.

  • Do not drink alcohol or use illegal drugs. If you do, we may ask you to leave orientation without registering for classes.

  • Remain on campus unless you are with an Orientation Advisor or your parent/guardian.

  • Lock the doors to your room when you leave, and don’t let strangers into the residence hall.

  • Be in your residence hall by 12:30 a.m. Observe quiet hours on your floor from 11 p.m.-8 a.m.

  • Uphold the Student Honor Code and the University Code of Conduct.

If you violate these expectations, you will not be able to register for classes and you will be required to meet with an orientation staff member or the Dean of Students. Orientation is the first step in your Longhorn journey, and it is important to make responsible decisions at your orientation session. You are encouraged and expected to make decisions that positively impact your UT education.

Student Honor Code

“As a student of The University of Texas at Austin, I shall abide by the core values of the university and uphold academic integrity.”

The principles of the Student Honor Code are key to a Longhorn State of Mind. In abiding by its values, you promote an environment conducive to academic success.

It is the responsibility of every Longhorn to both know and uphold the university’s expectations for conduct. Student Conduct and Academic Integrity in the Office of the Dean of Students fosters a Longhorn State of Mind on campus through the resolution of academic integrity and conduct-related matters as well as educational outreach to students, faculty, and staff. Specific information about the university’s disciplinary process, related resources, as well as the university’s rules (described in Chapter 11 of the Institutional Rules on Student Services and Activities) can be found on the Student Conduct and Academic Integrity website
