“The Dean of Students, or his/her designee, has the authority and responsibility for the administration of the disciplinary system and the establishment of procedures, which apply to all students alleged to be in violation of this Code of Conduct, whether an incident occurs on campus or elsewhere.” University of Miami 2011-2012 Student Rights and Responsibilities Handbook page 31.

Almost every university disciplinary code I have ever read includes a provision permitting the school to discipline a student even if an incident or crime occurs off campus and has nothing to do with the university, another student or the staff.  In fact, I recently represented a University of Miami student who was brought before the Dean for an underaged drinking arrest that occurred far off campus.

The bottom line is – if the university finds out about it from the police or whomever then they very well may charge you with a university disciplinary code violation.
