CHECKING-IN (Traditional Residence Halls & Annexes)
Room Evaluation FormResidents are responsible for the condition of their rooms. Your RA will check you into your room and note, along with you, all of the furniture and any distinguishable marks in the room. When you check out of your room, the condition will be compared to the original check-in evaluation form. After your room is cleaned and your belongings are removed, both you and the RA will examine the condition of your room. Any damages not noted on the original form will be noted on the check-out portion of the room evaluation form. Charges will be deducted from your room/damage deposit accordingly or placed on your account.
**Special Note**If damage occurs or furniture is missing from a room and a resident does not take responsibility for the situation, all residents of that room will share the cost of the damages. In addition, any damages noted by maintenance or the residence hall staff during their inspection of the room after move-out will be deducted from your deposit or added to your account.
