Student Handbook

As members of the Daemen University community, regardless of whether you are a first-year student or senior, live on or off campus, or are 18 or 35, all students are held to the same values and expectations. The Student Handbook and the Code of Conduct have been designed to both empower students while holding them accountable. Any community must have a set of guiding values; this Handbook is meant to serve as a guide not only for our students, but also for faculty, staff and administrators to ensure that all members of our community, including faculty and staff, are informed about policies, procedures, rights and privileges.

We encourage all students to review the information in the Student Handbook to not only know what is expected of them as members of the Daemen University community, but also to know their rights. The Student Handbook also contains helpful information, guides, and directories that will make navigation of campus life easier.

If, after reading through this Handbook, you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Office of Student Affairs at (716) 839-8200.  You can also contact the Dean of Students, Kerry Spicer or via phone at (716) 839-8519. Daemen University Title IX staff and other responsible persons participate in annual training, including Title IX training, provided by the SUNY Conduct Institute
