Community Damages and Assessment
Damage to common areas of the residence halls resulting in repair and maintenance costs affects the entire community. You are therefore encouraged to exercise care in your living environment and to be aware and report those who do not. Because we believe in the importance of community respect and responsibility, any damages to the common areas for which the responsible individual(s) cannot be determined will be assessed equally amongst all members of that community. The process of community assessment is the final option should all attempts by the community to identify the responsible person(s) be unsuccessful.
