Spring Break Inspections Reminder

Beginning spring break, R&DE Student Housing staff will be inspecting student rooms and apartments in undergraduate housing in preparation for June closing. Particular attention will be given to maintenance repairs (e.g., lights out, window/door locks, light covers), potential damages, lofted and bunked bed safety, fire code and safety issues (such as candles, blocked evacuation maps, removed/covered smoke detectors). Inspection information sheets, noting violations, potential damages and service requests issued, will be left behind in all rooms inspected during spring break. Please be sure to carefully read over the inspection sheet and address all noted items, then sign and return the form to your local Housing Front Desk.

Staying Safe: Keeping You & Your Belongings Safe!

  • Be sure to close and lock your windows and doors when you leave your room! Your personal belongings are vulnerable to theft when you leave entry points into your room open when you are not home.
  • Keep an eye out for "tailgaters" into your residence. This helps keep out "unwanted' visitors in your residence.
  • Close lobby and lounge windows at night.
  • Report suspicious individuals immediately by calling 9-1-1 from your cell phone or room phone.
