Common Areas

You share with other residents the responsibility of maintaining the common areas in a clean and sanitary manner. Consideration for others and the common courtesy of cleaning up after yourself are essential aspects of residence hall life. By properly disposing of your trash and actively participating in the recycling program by taking your recycling materials to designated areas, you help maintain a healthy environment. Failure to keep kitchen areas, bathrooms, and hallways clean violates the Residents' Understandings and may result in disciplinary action. If you have any questions about the cleaning of your residence hall, consult your residence staff member.


Although the bathrooms in the traditional-style residences are cleaned on a daily basis, you are responsible for cleaning up after yourself. This means not only taking personal items back to your room, but also placing trash in designated containers, and removing any dishes you may have washed in the sink.


When you use a kitchenette, clean up after yourself and make sure all your trash is disposed of in the appropriate receptacles. The caretaking staff will notify residence staff of any particularly unclean conditions. Residents have a limited time to clean up the area(s) in question. Any kitchenette that is not adequately tidied and cleaned will be closed, and residents on the floor will be billed for clean-up charges accordingly.


Card-activated laundry facilities are available throughout the residence hall system. Irons and ironing boards are available for your use.


Limited storage is available in residence halls. You might want to check the yellow pages of the telephone book for commercial storage options. The University accepts no responsibility for the theft, loss or damage of any items placed in storage. If you use storage facilities in residence, you are doing so at your own risk.
