Damage Charges

The following is a summary of charges most frequently levied in the residence halls. The partnership properties (Cambridge Oaks and Cullen Oaks) have their own summary of charges specific to their communities. This list is not intended to be comprehensive or exclusive, and also may involve other disciplinary actions. Other or unusual charges are computed on a time and materials basis. Please be aware that charges are subject to change. Appeals may be filed with the appropriate residence life coordinator’s office within 30 days of checkout.

Minimum charges quoted are based on average time and materials. Actual charges will be based on real-time and material costs.

Damage charges do not limit our ability to pursue other remedial steps, up to and including conduct action and possible removal from housing.
