Faculty Policies and Procedures

Faculty Vacating

If you intend to vacate your apartment, please notify the Office of Residential Services in writing of your intent at least 30 days prior to your planned vacancy date. Please be aware that you may be liable for the remainder of your license if you continue to maintain affiliation with the College. Additionally, if you vacate your apartment before the end of the term of your license agreement, at minimum you will forfeit your security deposit.

When you vacate your apartment you must remove ALL personal property and leave the apartment room clean. Your keys should be given to your superintendent or the Office of Housing and Residence Life. Your security deposit may not be used as your last month's rent.
