The next room checks are the first day of each break at 9am (typically a Saturday). Please make sure your room is clean, that your fan is running, and your windows are locked. Trash must also be removed; any trash found in the room that poses health concerns will result in a $50 removal fee.
Selection for on-campus housing will begin before Spring Break.
