The following guidelines will help Luvin Arms be a safer space:

  • Respect physical and emotional boundaries

  • Be responsible for your actions and words, and be aware that they may have an unintended effect on others regardless of original intent

Many of the guidelines and actions outlined within this safer spaces policy apply to making Luvin Arms a safer space for our residents, too.

Language or actions that disrespect or disparage the residents will not be tolerated.

Should an issue arise, Luvin Arms staff will be available to mediate on-site and attempt to find a solution. Luvin Arms reserves the right to ask anyone who is violating the safer spaces policy to change or address their unsafe behavior or language, or leave the premises if needed.
