Damages and Fines

Fees for damages occurring in residence halls are charged to the responsible individual or group. When this is not possible, all residents of the hall or floor become collectively responsible for the costs involved. Fees may include replacement cost, labor cost, and a charge to deter damage. Damage fines are assessed to student accounts at the end of each semester.
