Frequently Asked Questions

Will my room ever be entered and checked by college staff?

Yes, checks of rooms are conducted multiple times per year by the Office of Residential Life; the Department of Environmental Health and Safety may also make checks. These checks are made to determine if there are any violations of campus Health and Safety policy in the room.

In the Fall, a check is conducted with room residents present in order to share information about violations directly with the residents. The remaining three checks are conducted after students leave for the Thanksgiving, winter, and spring breaks. Violations found during these checks can result in judicial referral and a fine.
