Q: What is the University’s policy on alcohol?
A: Concordia University Texas abides by Texas state laws concerning the sale, possession, and use of alcohol. Alcohol is not allowed in the common areas of residence halls. All students present in a private room or suite where alcohol is openly present or being consumed must be of legal drinking age (21 or older). The consumption or possession of alcoholic beverages by persons 21 years of age or older on Concordia’s campus is restricted to certain areas and conditions.
Q: How does the University deal with students who have violated University policies?
A: Violations of University policies and regulations are normally addressed through the University Judicial System by the Director of Residential Life and/or the Dean of Students.
Q: When does the university contact parents about concerns for a son’s or daughter’s behavior?
A: Although the University does not routinely contact parents when their student is found to have broken the University’s Code of Conduct, it will do so when the student has been found responsible for a serious violation and has thus jeopardized his or her status with the University. Because we believe that parents share a deep concern with us for the growth and development of our students, parents will be informed of significant Code of Conduct violations by their son or daughter. In turn, parents will be asked to contact the Dean of Students.
Q: Does the University Bookstore have a website, and can students order textbooks there?
Q: Is parking allowed on campus?
A: Yes. http://www.concordia.edu/parking
Q: Is there a safety escort service?

Finally, when you are walking across campus or to your car and do not feel safe, call CTX Police and one of the CTX security personnel will escort you. This is not an inconvenience, and they are always willing to help.
