Student Conduct

Rules and Regulations

As members of the Bates College community, students are expected to be responsible for their conduct at all times.  In keeping with the College’s mission to encourage student development, and to foster leadership, service, and creativity, certain rules and regulations have been established to further these educational goals.

On the following pages you will find an explanation of these rules and regulations in the form of the Bates College Code of Student Conduct.  There is also additional information to assist students in understanding the College’s judicial procedures.  To address any questions or concerns please contact Dean Carl Steidel in Lane Hall, room 103.  Dean Steidel is available via email at, or to schedule an appointment call 207-786-6220.
