Rules and Regulations

The LAU housing is your home away from home. We will do our best to insure that you as residents are comfortable, and will try to accommodate most of your individual needs. For the safety, security, comfort and wellbeing of all, residents must abide by the rules and regulations that are listed below:

  1. Residents are encouraged to use the residence hall facilities, which include the common rooms, lounges and computers. It is the resident’s responsibility to use the facilities responsibly. Damage other than regular “wear and tear” to any of the residence hall property or facilities will be charged to the resident’s account, according to rates set by the Business Office every year.
  2. Removal of any of the equipment or furniture is NOT allowed without prior approval of the residence hall supervisor.
  3. Maintenance personnel are available for all repairs needed. Fixing or attempting to fix a broken device or furniture yourself is NOT permitted.
  4. The residence halls in Byblos will be closed during semester breaks. This does not apply to Beirut residence halls.
  5. Smoking is not allowed anywhere in the residence halls.
  6. Alcoholic beverages may NOT be stored, consumed, or brought on to any residence hall premises.
  7. Pets are not allowed in the residence halls.
  8. All residents must observe quiet hours from 11 p.m. to 8 a.m.
  9. Visiting hours in the rooms are from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. and in the lounges from 8:00 a.m. until 12 midnight. Guests are required to sign in and out at the front desk. Residents are responsible for the behavior of their guests, and bear all consequences of any violation of regulations.

  20. A university campus is a trust-based community where cooperation and mutual respect of people and property is essential and when achieved, it can become the cornerstone of your future success.
