Damage & Move-Out Charges

You and your fellow residents share responsibility for your room, suites, and building commons areas. When possible, any person or persons responsible for causing damage will be assessed the repair and replacement charges connected with restoring damaged areas to as close to original condition as possible.

Damages can be assessed by rooms, suites, floors, or throughout a building. The typical costs for repairing or replacing many of the furnishings and facilities frequently damaged in the residence halls are listed below. Charges for these items will depend on the current cost of materials and the amount of time required to complete these kinds of repairs. Damage charges reflect minimal labor costs; thus, additional required labor will result in a higher charge.

Charges are assessed based upon move-out inspections or upon discovery of damages at other times.  Residents are not charged for normal wear-and-tear or for conditions noted on RCRs/SCRs when they moved in.
