Room Condition & Maintenance

Room Condition Reports (RCRs)

When you check into your residence hall, you will be asked to complete a Room Condition Report. It is important that you fill this out thoroughly. It is used to assess any damages that occur in your room during the year. You and your roommate(s) are each required to complete separate RCRs before you will be given your mailbox key for the year. It is important that you review this form for accuracy and completeness. 

Remember, you will be held responsible for keeping your room and room furnishings in good condition and will be assessed charges for any missing furnishings and/or damages.

University does not accept liability for damage or theft of personal property, we recommend that you either carry your own personal property insurance or determine if property loss is covered by your parents’ homeowner’s policy. It is a good idea to put proper identification on all your valuables. 

Health & Safety Room Inspections

Staff from the Office of Housing & Residence Life make periodic, unannounced checks of all residence hall rooms. A residence hall staff member who is responsible for identifying health, safety, and maintenance problems performs the inspections. 

Maintenance Requests & Work Orders

Maintenance and Housekeeping staffs work together to keep the residence halls safe and clean. In the event something needs to be repaired, you can get assistance by submitting a work request online. If an emergency exists (floods, power outages, safety hazards, etc.), please contact your RA and/or RHC.

Resident Assistants, University Police, housekeepers, and maintenance staff are not permitted to unlock your door for you if you are locked out. A temporary key must be signed for.

Items Left in Rooms

Residents are required to remove their belongings when they switch or check-out of their rooms. Any items left in resident rooms after the student leaves university housing will be gathered by college staff and either discarded or donated to a charitable organization. There is no storage available on campus and even if a resident is returning to the same room the following semester, each room must be completely vacated at the close of the school year.
