08/13/14Policy change regarding bedrails
Beginning Fall 2014, bedrails will become standard and installed on all bunked and lofted beds as an added safety feature for our students. They will be inventoried into the room and must be present and in use while there are lofted and/or bunked beds in use in the room. We have reviewed the previous stated policy in which we gave students the option to opt out of using the rails by signing a waiver and our staff removing them. Because we feel very strongly about the added safety the bed rails provide in the prevention of falls, we have changed our policy. Bed rails must remain on the beds and we highly recommend that you do not remove them. Students will not incur a charge for removing bedrails however, a replacement fee of $53 per bedrail will result for any missing or damaged bedrails.

06/02/14Wired Network Connection Notice
The cost to maintain both a wired and wireless network infrastructure is high with less than 10% of students opting for wired connections. As a result, most of the infrastructure that supported the wired network has been decommissioned in an effort to keep housing rates as low as practical. All students residing in residence halls and apartments are provided with access to the University's high speed wireless network at no additional charge. All rooms, and select common areas in apartments, have ethernet jacks installed, but these are now inactive. A limited number of wired connections are still available, but at an additional charge. If you would prefer to connect to the University network via a wired connection, please complete our Wired Network Connection Request form to submit a request to have your port activated.
04/09/14Submit Housing Release if Not Living On-Campus for Fall 2014 / Spring 2015
If you no longer need on-campus housing, submit a housing release form.
If your release request reason is to move off-campus: As long as you submit your housing release request before May 1, there will be no housing cancellation fee. After May 1, there will be a $500 charge and after the start of the semester, you will not be released and will incur the full cost of living in your campus assignment.
Be sure that you have something secured off-campus before submitting the form because once we cancel your housing, you will not be eligible to live on-campus next year (due to space limitations).
