The University of Maryland Eastern Shore cannot be categorized as overly strict, but there are rules and regulations students must follow. In general, the campus administration expects students to act like the teenagers and young adults they are, but they also do not expect students to disregard all the home training they had before coming to campus. The campus rules are laid out in the UMES Student Code of Conduct Handbook, and each student is expected to become acquainted with it because they will be held responsible for knowing its contents. There is zero tolerance when it comes to fighting, drug use and possession, and possession of weapons, firearms, or explosives. If a student is found guilty of any of these things, the minimum punishment is suspension from UMES for one semester. If this happens, the student will also have his or her housing contract canceled and denied in the future. The maximum punishment for violating a zero-tolerance policy is expulsion.
In terms of visitation, overnight guests of the same sex are permitted in all halls, but guests of the opposite sex are not permitted overnight in any residence hall. And all guests must be registered with the residence hall management office. Freshmen have even stricter visitation rules, including shorter visitation hours. All of the rules set in place are there to keep students here safe and to make sure everyone is able to enjoy their college experience.
