Start cleaning and organizing your stuff now! You are expected to restore your residence to a condition similar to the way it was when you moved in. Failing to clean will result in excessive cleaning charges. Reduce the amount of trash and recycling that is collected the last few days by disposing of items now. This will help with the overflow of dumpsters and trash cans during those last few days.

University staff will start inspecting residences on Monday, December 17; however Resident Advisors will be checking the rooms on Saturday, December 15. Staff will be inspecting all areas and especially paying attention to major damages like holes in walls, broken doors, bent screens, or cleaning problems like filthy bathrooms, kitchens, and carpet stains. While normal wear and tear is expected, a trashed and filthy home is not acceptable.

When you moved in or switched rooms you were provided a link to complete the online Room Condition form. We compare these forms against our room inspections to determine what was pre-existing. If you didn’t fill out the Room Condition form and something is discovered as needing cleaned or repair, you (and/or housemates) will be charged. All occupants are charged equally for damage or cleaning of the bedroom and/or residence, unless someone takes responsibility for it. Individuals claiming responsibility will need to complete a Damage Responsibility form. Write out in detail who is claiming responsibility for what item. All responsible parties need to sign the form in order for th eform to be valid. Charging all licensees equally is a normal rental practice. The way to avoid being charged for something you didn’t do is by getting the other individual to accept responsibility

Once all the charges are calculated and finalized, we will mail you an itemized invoice which will be due in thirty days. Security deposits were not collected from the residents, which means all damages and excessive cleaning charges will be an additional out of pocket expense.Please make sure you have connected with all the appropriate offices and have completed everything that was needed.
