At the end of the year, residents are expected to leave the room in the condition received, with the exception of normal wear and tear. Those assigned to a room will be held responsible for all costs of returning the room to its original condition, including the repair of damage and anything deemed extraordinary wear and tear. Abuse of the living space may be grounds for removal from residence or other conduct action.
The College reserves the right to change room assignments at any point.
