Office of Community Life


The purpose of the Office of Community Life is to engage students to actively experience a holistic community through abiding by the code of conduct, participating in restorative practices, receiving mentoring, and utilizing conflict resolution. Community Life seeks to engage students in a critical time of personal development to educate and equip them to better live in community with one another.

Code of Conduct

The Administration and Faculty have committed Liberty to the highest standards of moral and ethical conduct. No one will become spiritual merely by observing rules; nonetheless, the spiritual student will desire to abide by the rules, regulations and policies. Liberty holds as one of its foremost goals the development of men and women of strong character. Firm moral conviction and dependable self-discipline are as important to the mission of the university as academic aptitude.

Students are expected to conduct themselves according to the rules of the University at all times. The specific rules, regulations, and policies that govern student behavior are outlined both in this catalog and in the Code of Honor, which is available on the Office of Community Life website.

Students enrolled in the Liberty University Graduate School and Liberty University Online are subject to the Liberty University Code (the Liberty Way) when present, or if living, on campus. The Honor Codes for Residential Graduate students and for Liberty University Online students can be found online at the Graduate and Online Community Life website.


The CARE Team (Collaborate, Assess, Resource, Empower) exists to promote the safety and well-being of the university community. The CARE Team, comprised of core members from departments across campus that have the most direct student interaction, works collaboratively to assess students who may be displaying concerning behavior(s), and seeks to effectively resource them to on and off campus providers that help promote holistic student success. The CARE Team provides two primary services: threat assessment and case management. Threat assessment is conducted on each referral to determine the level of risk a student poses to themselves or others. Case management and advocacy services are also offered to help determine what resources may be most beneficial for the students’ unique situation, or to collaborate with students on resources they are already pursuing.

Office of Residence Life

The purpose of the Office of Residence Life is to provide a quality on-campus living experience that fosters a diverse community, academic growth, and the holistic development of students. It collaborates with other Student Affairs departments to provide a holistic student life experience.

On Campus Living

Liberty University requires all unmarried students under the age of 21 to live on campus. Students living on campus must be currently enrolled in a residential program and must be attending classes on campus.

All students must complete financial check-in prior to occupancy and must agree to the terms and policies as outlined in the on-campus “Housing Agreement”. Students who are married or 25 years of age or older (at any time during the semester) are not allowed to live on campus. Rooms are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. Detailed information is available online at

The Office of Residence Life employs a team of professionals and paraprofessionals on the residence hall:

Resident Director

Resident Directors (RDs) oversee the residence halls, as well as the Resident Assistant teams on each floor. Additionally, they are responsible to enforce the standards of The Liberty Way while promoting the overall well-being of the students residing in the halls.

Resident Assistant

Resident Assistants (RAs) provide leadership to students in the residence halls in the form of discipline, discipleship and overall oversight.

Off Campus Living

The off campus living policy states that single students must be 21 years of age or older or be living with an immediate family member who is 21 years of age or older in order to live off campus. For specific information regarding the off-campus living policy, contact the Office of Student Life.

The Office of Student Life provides an online “Apartment Finder” that lists apartments, houses, rooms, etc. that are available for rent or for sale in the Lynchburg area. Rental fees generally range from $500 to $800 per month.

Student Health Center & Wellness Initiatives


The department of Student Health Center and Wellness Initiatives seeks to provide quality medical health services and educational programming that promotes healthy living in the university community.

Department Objectives

  • Provide designated clinics and services that are cost-effective and responsive to student needs.
  • Promote campus-wide wellness initiatives so as to reduce the impact of illness and other health concerns which may interfere with student success.
  • Maintain the security of student health records and oversee the official release of information to comply with federal and state regulations.
  • Coordinate the distribution of self-disclosed student medical information among university departments so that students with health related needs might secure the necessary support services. 

Liberty University Student Health Center, located in Commons III on main campus, is a service of Central Virginia Family Physicians (CVFP), providing quality medical care and assisting students and faculty in maintaining and optimizing their health. Effective Fall 2016, Liberty University and its counseling program will be partnering with nationally recognized CVFP-Medical Group to provide students with quality medical and mental health services, health promotion, and preventive care. A $160 student health fee built into tuition and fees each semester will cover a wide variety of services in our Student Health Center.

Office hours are Monday – Friday, 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM. The office is closed from 12:00 PM to 1 PM. To schedule an appointment, please call (434) 338-7774. Additional information is provided on the Health Services webpage at
