- The responsibilities of the university require the reservation of a reasonable right of entry into student rooms to assure proper upkeep, to paint, to repair, and to provide for the health and safety of all residents in a residence hall, and/or to investigate when reasonable cause exists to believe that a violation of residence hall or other university regulations is occurring within student rooms.
- As an occupant of a room, a student is responsible for its upkeep and is liable for damage to or loss from the room.
- Students are not permitted to paint their rooms. The university maintains a painting schedule to repaint buildings. Should paint be needed in your residence, please contact Property Management.
