Everything has humor in it, everyone has flaws, you are not always right, your opinions are opinions because not everyone views things your way, do not go on the internet looking for friends, and fuck you.

RA at a big school here. While we do provide this information through both a digital format and on our bulletin boards (though we don't list the exact fine amount for various reasons) most residents just don't read it. Maybe it's different at a small school but, in one with a large number of relatively irresponsible students, people straight up ignore your postings. Verbally informing them of housing policy is better for both us and them as we have better footing for paperwork down the road and they're more likely to remember the information. Requiring people to attend a meeting is seriously for a resident's own benefit and is actually a giant pain in the ass for the staff that have to run it.

In fairness, we also don't file against people for not coming. It just means that, should they choose to ignore the rest of our material, they kind of have to eat shit and suck it up.

Well for example, before breaks start we tell our residents when the building closes if they plan on leaving after that time they must tell the RD of that building. If they don't they will get fined. So if someone doesn't come to that meeting and stays another day they will get charged the fine for staying there.

That seems like something that would be pretty heavily advertised on university websites and bulletin boards, and should be. It would be a dick move to make the meeting the sole provider of residency information. I agree that it might be beneficial to attend the meetings, but in no way should it be the sole source of consequential information, nor should they be required. It would be easier and more efficient for both parties to provide such information electronically or through bulletin boards, and to make meetings optional.

Residence contract. They can write you up.

Or else you can be written up for it. Pretty much we are forced to do them and all it is is just either introducing ourselves, making sure everyone has the information for something that is happening, or if an incident has occurred in the building (shitting in the shower, vandalism, noise, etc..)

And what happens when you're written up? It's a note in your file at the university, and that's it. It becomes meaningless once you graduate. I've never seen a residence contract that says there will be financial or academic penalties for not going to meetings. The furthest they'd go would be a disciplinary note on your file, and employers aren't going to give a shit about it.

Being written up in a non-employment environment is one the emptiest threats there are. Fucking do what you want, you're paying them.
