  1. Occupancy of rooms is only by students to whom the room is assigned. Rooms may not be sublet to another person. Room transfer may be made only after receiving written approval from the Housing Office. A guest may not be accommodated at any time.
  2. Students are responsible for taking care of rooms and equipment. International dorms provide no janitorial service in student rooms. Charges may be made for damages to, unauthorized use of, or alterations to rooms, equipment or buildings and for special cleaning necessary due to improper care of rooms or equipment. Students are jointly responsible for care of public areas and equipment. Public areas are defined as those areas available for use by all students living on a wing, a floor or within a house. Charges for damages to public areas and equipment may be made to all students assigned to separate wings, floors or within entire house as appropriate.
  3. Students are responsible for knowing and observing Housing regulations and procedures. The University reserves the right to make other rules and regulations as in its judgment may be necessary for the safety, care and cleanliness of the premises and for the preservation of order. The student agrees to abide by all additional rules and regulations that are adopted.
  4. International dorms are not liable for damage or loss of personal property, failure or interruption of utilities, or unforeseen accidents/injuries. The International dorms only provide liability for damages or injuries caused by negligence on the part of the University or its employees while working within the scope of their employment.

  6. Authorized Housing personnel may enter student rooms for normal inspection and maintenance purposes.

  7. Room assignments may at any time be changed, canceled or terminated by the University in the interests of order, health, discipline, maximum utilization of facilities, or disaster after notice to the assignee as is practical. Disregard for the rights, responsibilities and duties of others, as well as the creation of circumstances which could jeopardize life, limb or property, are conditions which are not acceptable in the House life and may be cause for termination of the House Contract.
