Damage & Trash


Residents should remove all trash from their living spaces before departure. Residents not taking carpets, rugs, and other large items home must dispose of them in provided dumpsters. These items should not be left in hallways, common areas, or porches. All trash should be disposed of at the appropriate locations and containers.

Damage and Cleaning Charges

RAs and Fellows are not responsible for assessing damage charges. Property Managers will do a final inspection of each residence to determine any damage or cleaning charges that need to be assessed after residents leave. Any damages or cleaning charges will be divided equally among all occupants UNLESS a Damage Claim Form was completed by the resident(s) who is accepting responsibility for the charges.
Damage Claim Forms will be available at residential front desks and the Housing and Residence Life main office.
