If you leave personal items in your room/suite/apartment, the items will be removed at your expense.

Common Area Damage
If the members of the community and Housing and Residential Life staff are unable to determine the individual(s) responsible for damages to common areas (lounges, hallways, lobbies, building exterior, etc.), all residents in that area will be billed. For this reason, we encourage you to report vandalism. It's one way you can reduce unnecessary costs.
