Room Damage Assessments

As stated in your Student Handbook, Residents will be held responsible for damage, misuse, removal or theft of any College property.  If the individual responsible for damage(s) cannot be identified, all residents of a room, suite floor, or the entire residence hall will share the costs for labor and materials.  If there is damage in your living space please understand that there will be a charge. 
In order to minimize confusion with the assessment of damages, we encourage all residents to talk with their roommates about any possible damages that might have occurred in the living unit.  If one or several individuals are responsible for the damages, please take the time to fill out the Damage Responsibility Form which can be obtained from your Resident Assistant or Residence Hall Director. This form must be handed in before you leave for the summer. If damages are observed during inspections and no information was received from the students in the space, everyone will be responsible and charged for damages in the apartment/suite/room.
