      the government lending students money to pay for tuition at a private university doesnt somehow transform that university into a public institution.

      rules they want.  If they say you must wear uniform, you have to wear them.  If they say you have to attend religious classes to graduate, you have to do it.  If they say curfew is 8 is 8pm.  if they say no boys in the dorm rooms, no boys are allowed. If they say no tv, computers or internet in dorms...that's the rule.  

      A student signed up for it, pays to attend and can leave at any time that they don't like the rules.

      accepting federal student aid and research grants do subject any university to federal rules regarding those programs. However, it doesn't change the university's primary property rights to enforce rules on it's campus and to have rules for students who live on campus. In the eyes of the law BC is clearly a private college and not subject to the same rules as a state funded public university.
