Telephones Students are responsible for the use and condition of the College-provided telephone equipment in their room. The residents of a room or annex will be charged for any damage occurring to a telephone instrument or its wiring in their room or facility. Phone Relocation—Relocation of a permanently mounted telephone instrument is not allowed. Residents will be charged a $15.00 service charge to reinstall a phone if it is moved from its original location. Residents also will be charged for any parts or wiring damaged as a result of improper use of the telephone instrument. Extension Phones—Extension phones, wireless phones, or telephone answering machines may be used if your room is provided with a College-installed modular phone jack. The unauthorized addition of extension phones or other equipment to a permanently mounted wall phone may cause extensive damage to the telephone electronic switching center. The addition of equipment to the phone system is traceable, and will result in a $25.00 fine. The residents will be held responsible for the cost of repairs caused by any of the above actions. Improper Telephone Practices— Improper telephone calls are defined as unauthorized or incorrectly billed calls placed from any campus phone, including acceptance of incoming collect calls. Any student participating in improper telephone call(s) will pay the costs of those call(s) plus a $50.00 fine. Improper telephone practices include contacting an outside voice-mail or other additional telephone services providers and signing up for any additional services. These situations are itemized on the College’s telephone bill and can be traced to the student. A $100.00 fine will be assessed, and the cost of the services provided by the outside company will be billed to the student. The services will

All College-issued student furniture must remain in its designated area. Furniture will not be permitted to leave campus or to be stored in common areas or storage rooms. Missing furniture will be billed at full replacement costs. The number of sets of furniture is determined by the capacity of the room (i.e., if the capacity of the room is two people, there are two sets of furniture). Any service cost to reassemble or replace room furniture will be charged to room occupants. The furniture, TVs, and game tables located in lounges and study rooms is provided for general use and should not be removed from such areas. Removal/ misappropriation of this furniture may result in disciplinary action being taken. Computers, printers, furniture, and other equipment located in residential buildings’ computer labs should not be removed from such areas as well. Removal/misappropriation of these items may result in disciplinary action being taken.

Room Condition It is expected that student quarters, including public areas, will be kept in good condition and used in a careful, safe, and proper manner, and that students will abide by the College’s policies. The condition of student rooms is assessed prior to the beginning of the fall semester and during the week that immediately follows the close of each academic year. Students will be responsible for reviewing the condition of their living space with a staff member at the beginning and end of the term of occupancy in their room to formally 86
