Individual/Group Damage and Loss Assessment
- Fees may be charged to your university account for a variety of reasons, including administrative services or compensation for unreturned or damaged University property such as appliances or furniture. Damages may be for extraordinary cleanup required for the disposal of hazardous materials, such as mercury from a mercury thermometer (see Prohibited Items). Residents found responsible for tampering with any part of a window system will be billed by University Housing for any ensuing repair, replacement or reinstallation costs.
- The most impartial way to effect restitution for damages that negatively affect the community is to bill only those responsible. Therefore, residents are encouraged to accept responsibility for their own and their guests' behavior. Any residents aware of any person responsible for specific damages should contact University Housing professional or residence staff. In those instances when damages occur in individual rooms or in the
common areas of the floor or building and attempts to identify the parties responsible for the damage are not successful, contract holders living in or near the affected space may be billed as a group. Contract holders who were not on campus during the period the damage occurred may be exempt from charges billed to a group; contract holders in this category must inform the Housing professional staff member in writing within 30 days of receipt of the notice of the group billing.
