Good Neighbor Policy

MCPHS students living on campus and in off-campus housing near the University (Mission Hill, the Fenway, etc.) are responsible for adhering to the Good Neighbor Policy as stated in the Student Code of Conduct.

The University expects all students to conduct themselves as good citizens and neighbors at both on and off-campus locations. The University takes responsibility to its neighbors very seriously and expects that all students extend the same courtesy and respect to our neighbors. In light of the University's concern for the rights and privacy of its neighbors, policies and procedures must be strictly adhered to by all members of the University community.

Students who reside in or visit the University neighborhood are expected, as members of the MCPHS Community, to demonstrate respect and concern for all members of the local community. As such, MCPHS expects students to demonstrate responsible citizenship in the local neighborhood. Several community service opportunities exist for students.

To support the goal of being good neighbors, the following conduct (and any other of a like sort) will not be tolerated: excessive or unreasonable noise, sponsoring parties for profit (the illegal sale or distribution of alcoholic beverages which may include the use of tickets, tee-shirts, mugs, cups and/or any other items as a price or condition of admission), sponsoring social gatherings which could disturb neighbors and/or authorities and be disruptive to the community, serving minors, disorderly conduct, public drinking, use, sale or distribution of illegal drugs, harassment of neighbors, defacing or damaging property, interfering with the City of Boston Police or utility agencies in the performance of their duties, public urination, throwing objects out of apartment windows and the use, sale, manufacturing or distribution of fake IDs.

MCPHS students may be charged through the Student Discipline System for violating this policy and for misconduct that arises off-campus if the student is in violation of federal, state, or local laws or University policy that brings into question one's suitability as a member of the University community. If found responsible, students would be subject to sanctions up to and including loss of residence or suspension or dismissal from the University.
