The University of Toronto assumes no general responsibility for the moral and social behaviour of its students. There are some cases in which the University’s interest is unique and not adequately recognized by the wider justice system. For such instances, the University has its own set of internal offences, procedures, and sanctions – called the Code of Student Conduct
The Code of Student Conduct is a Governing Council Policy that sets out expectations for student behaviour, and prescribes processes for dealing with prohibited behaviour. It can be used as a tool in the cases when the rights of the University's community members are infringed upon by the behaviours of others.
The Students Companion to the Student Code of Conduct is a set of frequently asked questions and the responses about the Code of Student Conduct. It aims to simplify and clarify Code usage for the University’s community members.
