11) Please don't be offended when the person you've asked to proofread your paper has the audacity to correct your spelling and punctuation.

I'll second that! Been there and done that! ;D

This relates to residential life as well as general university ettiquette.

12) Don't slam doors at 2 a.m. The people on your hall have class in the morning and want to go to bed.
13) If your school doesn't let you have certain things in the dorm, please don't bring them. Or if you do, don't throw a fit when you're caught with them.
14) If it's illegal, don't keep it in the dorm room. The roommate(s)/suitemate(s) could get in trouble even if they never knew about it.
15) For discussion-based classes, be prepared to actually speak with the rest of the class. It's frustrating to be the only person besides the professor talking for the whole time.
16) Don't say things in class which are disproportionate to what's going on. Not talking in class ≠ putting one's classmates in slavery (actual thing said). That one's just plain offensive, actually, but y'all get the gist.

This. If the lecture's only one hour, your five minute question/story is taking up a good chunk of it. Now I realise that there are classes where real life anecdotes are germane, but generally, even if your story is related to the lecture, save it for a more appropriate forum (e.g. a tutorial, discussion based class, study group, etc.)

Spoder:
17) The Silent Study Zone of the library is exactly that: SILENT. That notice on the door which says 'Please use other areas of the library unless you plan to be completely silent'? That means *you*. Whispering is not silent. Talking on your cell phone is not silent. Playing your iPod at top volume is not silent: it 'bleeds' out and annoys the person next to you. You have the other 90% of the library to be non-silent in; show some respect for other students who can't concentrate through audible distractions.

18) If you're late to the lecture late, enter via the back door, if there is one. Do not amble (or even run) across in front of the lecturer, distracting everyone else.

19) The lecturer is a person, not a robot. Show them some respect. If you've just sat through a 1- or 2-hour lecture, you can sit through another 30 seconds at the end while they give instructions for the next class, without noisily packing up your stuff or chatting to the student next to you.
