XIV. Residence Hall Community

A. Solicitation/Business 

All door-to-door solicitation or hand distribution of printed material near, around, or within the residence halls is prohibited without special permission from Residential Life, Housing and Food Service.  Residence hall rooms and public areas may not be used for any business or remunerative purposes, including storing of commodities. Sales demonstrations or soliciting within the residence halls is not allowed. In addition, campus computer labs may not be used for business purposes.

Because door-to-door solicitation is prohibited in the residence halls, should someone come to your room offering to sell something or provide services - you should refuse to do business with them and notify department staff immediately. Experience has shown that most of the sales people who would enter the halls in violation of our policy are not legitimate and are often trying to "scam" residents.

B. Damage Policy 

The residence halls operate entirely from student housing payments. Therefore, any damage or vandalism to the halls is a form of stealing from you! We need to work together to prevent damages and to identify those responsible when damage does occur. 

If responsibility for damages or excessive cleaning cannot be determined, billing will be made as follows: 

1. For damage within a room or suite/ apartment: charges will be divided equally among all residents living in the room, suite or apartment. This includes damage to or cleaning of bathroom and kitchen areas. 

2. For damage to public areas: charges will be divided equally among all students on the floor or in the hall. 

C. Trespass 

We reserve the right to restrict access to any of our facilities at any time to any persons or groups. Any person who has been banned from the residence halls is prohibited from being in and around the residence halls at any time. Police may be notified to issue a citation or arrest violators for trespassing When a student has been released from the license agreement, or the license agreement has been canceled due to behavioral or administrative reasons, the student may not be in or around the residence halls, even as a guest or visitor, for the remainder of the academic year or date stipulated. 

D. Storage

Each resident must keep all of their possessions in their room or suite. No storage space is available at the residence halls in which to store suitcases, boxes, trunks or additional furniture. Residents may not store any items such as bicycles or personal property in hallways, stairwells, or other common space.
