Apartment Council

Apartment Council is your opportunity to make your voice heard about Graduate Complex policies, programs and the purchase of equipment for residents. It is a great way to get involved and be instrumental in governing the area. The Apartment Council is the active interpreters of the University’s principle of self-determination. Self-determination allows members of a residential area to develop the guidelines and procedures of self-governance which allows for both individual freedom and the privacy and personal rights of others in the community. Graduate Complex residents enact this responsibility through their building representatives to the Council. Residents have the opportunity to develop guidelines pertaining to safety, security and the maintenance of a clean and pleasant apartment community. Any resident of the Complex who has paid the annual Apartment Council dues may become a voting member of the Council. The Apartment Council upholds it fiduciary responsibility through the sound management of the Council funds. For more information, contact the Community Director or your GRA.
