Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need renter’s insurance?
The Office of Residence Life advises that each resident carry individual renter's insurance for his or her personal property in the event of fire, flood, theft, hurricane, tornado, overflowing tubs, broken pipes, water main breaks, etc.
You may be covered by your parents' homeowner's insurance. Check with your parents' homeowner's insurance company to see what is covered and additional information necessary for coverage.

What is a Room Condition Report?
You must complete, sign and return a Room Condition Report at move-in to document any problems with the condition of the room when it is initially occupied. You will be held responsible for any damages to the room found upon move-out unless originally noted on the Room Condition Report; or a previously reported maintenance problem.
Rooms will be inspected again at move-out. You must be present for this inspection and to schedule this inspection before moving out. If the Room Condition Report form has not been completed and returned, the Office of Housing and Residence Life will assume that there were no problems with the room when you initially moved in.
The Office of Housing and Residence Life will maintain and repair the mechanical systems, plumbing systems, and appliances. Resident will be responsible for any costs that occur from misuse, abuse or neglect to the apartment or the premises.
