5.8 Assessment of Damage Charges

When an individual is personally responsible for damage, the charge(s) are billed directly to their student account. When an individual cannot be found, the cost of damages is assessed to the community or community groups. 

When damage occurs in a room shared by residents, the occupants of the room are equally responsible for a part of the damage charge unless the responsible party voluntarily assumes the total charge. 

This includes the shared area of suites and apartments. 

If damages related to vandalism occur to the exterior surface of a room door or window, the residents must contact the coordinator of residence education or assistant director for Greek Housing of their building within 24 hours and supply documentation showing they should not be held responsible for any damage billing that may have resulted.
