Standard Damage Charges

Damage costs may be shared by you and your roommate(s) and/or neighbors. As stated in the Resident Handbook, when possible, the person or persons responsible for causing the damage will be assessed repair and/or replacement charges. Damages can be assessed by room, floor or building. The costs of repairing or replacing many of the furnishings and facilities frequently damaged in the residence halls are listed below. Prices are subject to change, therefore we reserve the right to charge accordingly.

Damage should be reported to your Resident Assistant (RA). If you cause damage, please report this to your RA so that others are not unfairly charged. While RAs report damage, they do not control the time required to complete repairs, the final amount of the assessment, or issue a billing to your student account. This is handled by other staff. Questions may be addressed to your RA, who will then refer you to appropriate parties.
