After a student checks out of their room or apartment, a Residential Life staff member will conduct a check-out inspection. At Fall and Spring closing times, this inspection takes place after all of the students have vacated a room, unless a student requests an Escorted Check-out. For spring 2021, the escorted check-out option is not available.
The staff member will reference the Apartment/Room Condition Report (ACR/RCR) that the resident(s) submitted to determine damage to furnishings and facilities (e.g., walls, windows, screens, mattresses, carpeting) and if college property is missing. It is important to note that if no ACR/RCR was submitted by the resident(s), furnishings and facilities will be considered to have been in "like new" condition.
If the staff member determines that the room or apartment, or its furnishings have been damaged beyond normal wear and tear (e.g., paint chips on the walls, graffiti on surfaces, torn drapes), or if College property is missing (e.g., recycling bins, furniture), the cost of repair and/or replacement will be divided equally between all residents of the room or apartment. Only if a specific student or students take responsibility for the damage in writing, will the cost of repair be assessed exclusively to them.
