Welcome to The Office of Community Standards

UNH campus

Welcome to the University of New Hampshire Office of Community Standards (OCS).  Here we support the academic mission of UNH by maintaining the general welfare and safety of the University community and preserving a productive living and learning environment.  This is accomplished by our administration of the University of New Hampshire Student Code of Conduct and Conduct Process; the agreed upon community standards established by UNH students, staff, and faculty. 

To achieve these aspirations, The Office of Community Standards supports and enforces standards of behavior designed to foster an environment of civility and respect where both rights and responsibilities are deeply valued.  OCS respects each and every UNH student by protecting their rights and ensuring fairness through the enforcement of University policies and regulations.  OCS believes in personal responsibility, accountability, and that your choices matter.

We hope you find our website useful and that it answers all of your questions. If you have problems with the website or suggestions, contact the webmaster at: james.mckane@unh.edu
