Notice of Policy

William Carey University reserves the right to enter into any university owned housing, or any student's automobile that is on campus, whether or not the student is a boarding student, with or without the student's presence, for the purpose of maintenance, repairs, inspections, health, safety, fire reasons, or with the reasonable belief that a Federal/State law or University policy has been violated. The search must be made by two or more University officials or security officers. Any evidence related to a violation of any law or university policy that is found in such searches may be seized. In the event that any items are seized, an itemized list of such items will be prepared at the conclusion of the search and signed by all officials present and a copy provided to the student.
