Improper Check-out

If upon check-out a resident does not clean the room to specifications, leaves the room in disorder, fails to check-out in the appropriate timeframe (see CHECK-OUT), or chooses to abandon the room (see Property Abandonment) the resident will be charged a $150 improper check-out fee and the charge will be assessed and charged to the bursar account of the student(s).

Property Abandonment

Items left in the room/suite/apartment by a vacating resident will be removed at the resident’s expense. The vacating resident will be sent an e-mail notice to the listed address and given 30 days thereafter to claim the items. If no response is received within the 30-day deadline, the University will dispose of these items by donating them to a local charity. Removal and storage fees may be charged to the resident’s bursar account. 

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 common area damages for that hall. For this reason, we encourage you to report vandalism. This is one way you can reduce unnecessary costs.
