Process

The REC/AC will enter all apartments and main campus units once vacant and reserves the right to make a final review of all resident rooms and to make appropriate assessments. Additionally, the REC/AC reserves the right to assess common (community) area damage/cleaning charges.

Main Campus Closing Expectations

If damages, university property loss or conditions that require extra cleaning exist, the assigned residents should predetermine who is financially responsible for the anticipated charges. Charges will be shared unless an individual accepts sole responsibility prior to the campus departure.

Submit an on-line work order for any conditions that need facility inspection or repair. Filing a work order doesn’t relinquish financial responsibility!
