The University assumes no responsibility and does not provide insurance or any financial protection against loss, damage or theft of personal property. It is recommended that students obtain insurance protection against loss, damage or theft of personal property. Information regarding such insurance is available through your personal property insurance carrier.
All rooms are equipped with a wall jack that will accept wall or desktop phones. Students are responsible for supplying their own phone. Only the use of DEC 6 is permitted in the residence halls due to interference with the wireless network. The phone system will work only by way of a touch-tone phone. The campus phone system permits residents to access campus and local calls directly. However, long distance calls are to be made using a phone calling card (established in your parents'/ guardians' telephone number), billing to a home phone number, or reversing the charges.
Any form of telephone misuse including, but not limited to, long distance theft, misuse of institutional phones, and harassing, obnoxious, obscene or annoying phone calls is strictly prohibited and will result in disciplinary action. Because of the University's desire to help protect students from unwanted phone calls, phone numbers (extensions) are not made available over the phone. For more detailed information please refer to University's Policy regarding the Distribution of Student Phone Numbers found in the Community Responsibilities section of the Abridged Student Handbook. In the event that you do receive unwanted phone calls, please inform the Residence Life staff immediately.
At no time should bicycles be stored in any campus building, stairwell or entryway. Bicycles may be stored in available bike racks and should be locked when parked or stored on campus. The University accepts no responsibility for the safekeeping of bicycles. Bicycles left in stairwells or entryways may be removed by University personnel.
Pets (except fish) are not permitted in the residence halls. Fish tanks must be kept clean, are limited to one per student, must not exceed 20 gallons.
