Taking Care of Your Room

While on campus, your residence hall room is your home...please treat it as such. The following information is provided to students so they can better prepare for moving in to their new home.

HANGING POSTERS, PICTURES, ETC.

Students should avoid the use of any tape other than masking tape on walls because they have a tendency to damage paint and other surfaces when removed. Charges will be assessed on the student’s account whenever damage to the room occurs because of the use of scotch tape, duct tape, electrical tape, adhesive picture holders, "poster putty," thumbtacks, nails, decals, etc. Students should report any needed room repairs to their Rector upon arrival and indicate them on the Room Condition Report.

TO AVOID BILLING FOR DAMAGES TO YOUR WALLS AND FURNITURE, USE STANDARD MASKING TAPE TO HANG POSTERS, PICTURES, ETC.

DAMAGE TO ROOMS OR FURNISHINGS

All residence hall rooms are inventoried prior to the opening of the hall and are inventoried again following the close of the residence halls. Damages, shortages and rule violations are noted, and the occupants of the room are billed accordingly. Any damage to a residence hall room or its furnishings will be charged to the occupants of the room. If corridor areas are damaged, the occupants of student rooms in the section are charged, or a charge is assessed to all residents.

Specific questions regarding residence hall check-in should be directed to the Rector. General questions about move-in, can be directed to housing@nd.edu.
