Fines and Damages

Damages to the residence hall will result in an assessment to the individual or group responsible, based on the actual cost to repair or replace the item or structure affected. Any maintenance or safety violation found in any room will result in a fine. Any excessive mess or malicious damage in the common areas will result in a fine to the hall, group, or individual responsible.

Fines and damage charges are assessed after an incident investigation. Residence hall staff work to find the perpetrators of any damage to be able to assess charges to those responsible. However, when this information cannot be determined, the cost of the damage/fines is split between the residents of the living unit (room, floor, building).

Here is a list of some standard fines. This list is not all inclusive.
