Protocols are in place for students who violate the University’s student code of conduct policy.
While the results of disciplinary cases regarding a specific individual are confidential, students found in violation of the student conduct code may be required to attend classes on being a good neighbor, ordered to pay a fine, or in the most serious of cases, suspension or expulsion may be issued.
Chapman University’s student code of conduct policy is available in full through the Student Affairs website.
All students, faculty, staff, and visitors are required to park in lots and structures on campus, and must have a permit to do so. Special exceptions are in place for those who have indicated that they utilize an alternative method of transportation, such as walking, bicycle, or train. Click here to read our full parking policy.
Please note: Temporary "A" permit parking passes (typically in yellow or blue) are not Chapman University parking passes, but are issued through the City of Orange. Please call Orange Police Department's parking enforcement team at (714) 744-7444 with any questions.
We recognize and acknowledge the fact that our campus is located within a unique and historic residential district, and as such, not all neighboring streets are approved for commercial vehicle use.
All buses--including admissions tours, visiting athletics teams, and performing arts set-up crews--must load and unload in the properly marked loading zone on Glassell Street, just west of the Musco Center.
Additionally, bus drivers who must temporarily park to wait for their passengers are advised to do so in the University-owned Palm Avenue parking lot.

The University has made a commitment to house at least 50% of our undergraduate student population on campus. Here are a few current projects that will help us obtain that goal:
Villa Park Orchard Residence Village: Located at the northwest corner of the intersection of West Palm Avenue and North Cypress Street, this 400+ bed facility is expected to be occupied by fall 2019. The design by the architectural firm Togawa Smith Martin, Inc. echoes the industrial character of the historic area.
Chapman Grand: Purchased in November 2017, this apartment building in Anaheim’s Platinum Triangle features housing for up to 900 students. Occupancy is expected in fall 2018 and a shuttle service will be provided to and from main campus.
Panther Village: The University recently purchased vacant land adjacent to Panther Village, located on West Chapman Avenue near Interstate 5. The University is planning on adding a parking lot to the land. By providing additional on-site parking, students will be able to avoid driving to campus.
North Residence Halls: Replacement of the 45-year-old residence halls on the north side of campus is planned, however, design planning is currently on hold.
