Public Area Damage
Damage to any residence hall furniture, fixtures, or facilities or damage to property of students living in the residence hall is prohibited. If a student is responsible for damage in public areas of the residence hall, the cost of repair/replacement is charged to the student’s account.
Resident Room Damage
If anything is damaged, broken or missing at the time of checkout, the resident(s) may be charged to have it fixed/replaced. Staff will use the Room Condition Report completed by the resident at the beginning of the year to compare the condition of the room. Any and all damages that were not specified on the Room Condition Report when the resident moved in, other than normal wear and tear, will be recorded and charged to the student’s account. If it is not known or cannot be resolved which roommate(s) is responsible for the damage, then the charges will be divided equally between the roommates.
For checkouts occurring within the semester, damages will be charged to student’s account immediately after checkout. For end of semester checkouts, those charges will be submitted within a few weeks.
