When a student arrives on campus, and before items are moved into the student's room, each resident must complete a Room Condition Form by signing and recording the condition of listed furniture, furnishings and room surfaces. The Residence Life staff will review this condition report for accuracy and sign it. When he or she leaves, in order to avoid damage fines, the resident will be responsible for seeing that the room is in the same condition as when he or she arrived. Each resident must check-out in person with the appropriate Residence Life staff member at the end of the spring semester and in the case of a room change or withdrawal. Upon check-out residents must again sign and complete the original Room Condition Form and turn in their room key. A fine will be charged if a student fails to check out in the proper manner unless specifically excused by the Resident Director.
The changing of rooms and/or roommates is permitted during Christmas break between the fall and spring semesters and must be approved and administered by the Residence Life staff in advance. We understand that conflicts between roommates can arise during the semester, and residents experiencing distress are encouraged to seek counsel from the Resident Assistant or Resident Director as early as possible. Our residence life staff is trained and equipped to walk through these situations with residents and seek to provide a positive resolution, in whatever form that may take.
If a room is (or becomes) vacant, and the Office of Residence Life identifies that space as available, a student can apply to move into that private room at an increased room rate of $500 per semester. If accepted, the amount will be pro-rated based on the date the student moves in. Students will not be permitted to move into single rooms without receiving permission and agreeing to pay for the private rate. Single Room Requests are available online at www.letu.edu/reslifeforms and must be signed by the appropriate Resident Director before a move is permitted. Students will not be charged a single-room fee if their room becomes vacant due to an assigned roommate move or withdrawal from housing.
All students taking 7 or more credit hours on-campus must reside on-campus unless one or more the following circumstances exist and the Petition to Live Off-Campus has been submitted and approved:
The Petition to Live Off-Campus is available online at www.letu.edu/reslifeforms. Should your request be denied, you have the opportunity to appeal in written form to the Campus Residency Committee. The deadline to apply to reside off-campus is two (2) weeks before the end of the previous semester in order to allow time for the Committee to meet.
