Room Entry and Search - Residence Life Policy

The university reserves the right to inspect a room for damage or stolen property, to make repairs, and to check rooms at all break periods. Ball State University reserves the right to enter rooms without a search warrant for any reasonable purpose. Search will not be made in halls unless there is an emergency requiring immediate action (i.e., medical concern or extreme community disruption) or unless there is a search warrant or the members of University Police assume responsibility for the search.
