HANOVER, N.H. (AP) - Zoning officials have reversed course and ruled that students cannot keep living in the house of a Dartmouth College fraternity that was banned because of hazing accusations.

The Valley News reports (https://bit.ly/29ORNg5 ) that Monday’s ruling reinforces a precedent that Dartmouth officials say could apply to every fraternity on campus.

Dartmouth banned Sigma Alpha Epsilon from campus last year. Hanover officials then informed the fraternity that students could no longer live in SAE’s $1.3 million home because zoning rules require that residences in the district operate “in conjunction” with an institution.

The Hanover Zoning Board of Adjustment initially ruled in favor of SAE’s appeal in April, but new evidence brought by the college spurred the board to reverse its decision.

SAE officials didn’t return requests seeking comment.
