At the very heart of Queens University of Charlotte is the Honor Code. Below are a few important community standards that relate specifically to living
- Alcohol - Alcohol is permitted in the residence halls for students who are at least 21 years
of age. Students may not possess bulk amounts of alcohol. This includes but is not
limited to kegs and party balls. We encourage students to consume alcohol responsibly

gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability, etc. We believe that every student
has the right to a safe, fun and positive experience at Queens.

hall room, suite or apartment. Students are not permitted to enter other rooms, suites
or apartments without permission from the resident of that space.

of all community members to maintain our campus and promulgate its beauty. Vandalism
