Oren Gateway Substance-Free Agreement and recovery support agreement
The residential portion of Oren Gateway is a place free of alcohol and illegal drugs. Oren Gateway residents and their guests may not use or possess alcohol or illegal drugs while in Oren Gateway. If an Oren Gateway resident or guest chooses to use such substances outside of Oren Gateway, the results of that choice may not have a negative impact on the residents or property upon return to Oren Gateway. Residents and their guests may not cause a disruption in Oren Gateway because they used substances elsewhere. Violation of this policy may result in reassignment to other available University housing outside of Oren Gateway.
As a member of the Oren Gateway community, students are part of the Augsburg commitment to provide recovery support and substance free living for the Oren residential population. All students who live in Oren Gateway Center are required to complete the Substance Free Agreement. Students who live in Oren Gateway Center and who are not a StepUP program participant are required to complete the Recovery Support Agreement in addition to the Substance Free Agreement.
