Frequently Asked Questions

I got a notice that I was in violation, and I took care of it, but now I am still being fined. Why?

We conduct an education check in the early Fall. During that time, if you are found with Health and Safety Violations and either remove the item in violation, staff remove the item in violation, or you resolve the issue by the specified date, you will not be fined or judicially referred. Items confiscated by staff will be stored by your Residence Director for one semester.

You will be automatically charged for violations at all other checks during the academic year. This information is included in the Health and Safety brochure each student gets. Removal of the violation following documentation by either the room resident(s) or staff is an expectation, and does not excuse the initial presence of the violation.

More information is available in our Room and Apartment Guides.
