End of Year Charge Appeals & Housing Condition Summaries Requests

End of Year Charge Appeals Request

Housing & Residence Life will consider appeals for damages and/or fees associated with the Spring-Summer 2014 semester. Appeals must be received by 5pm on Tuesday, September 23rd. Please review the Closing Information before submitting your appeal as many questions can be answered through those policies and procedures.
The following circumstances are not considered valid reasons for an appeal:
  • Time constraints during move out. For example, not allowing enough time to defrost a refrigerator, take out trash/recycling, clean thoroughly, or to remove all personal items, etc.
  • Lack of knowledge regarding move out and closing procedures. All move out and closing information was outlined by Housing & Residence Life through your Living Center Director, Resident Assistant staff, email correspondence, community or floor meetings and/or community bulletin boards. 
  • Damage not listed on a Housing Condition Summary (HCS) by Housing Staff or Resident at Move In. The HCS states, "Once you have signed and submitted your completed HCS you will be held responsible for any additional damages found upon checkout." Failure to turn in the Housing Condition Summary results in the resident being responsible for all damage
  • Failure to return all items at checkout (access card, keys, laundry card).
