Theories of the Student-University Relationship: The five most common theories are: “expertise,” “privilege,” “in loco parentis,” “property,” and “contract.” I will discuss these in some detail from a historical viewpoint, then try to sum up current law as applied to various Fourth Amendment situations and explore the current student-university relationship. The focus will be on the law’s effect on the student’s right to privacy in his living quarters to answer the question: “is the student’s dormitory room his castle?”
