Abandoned Property

Abandoned Property - Residence Hall Policy

Property which is left by a resident at the end of his/her contract period or when the student leaves an assigned space will be packed up by residence life or housekeeping staff in the presence of a witness. The contents will be inventoried and stored in another location. A letter and a copy of the inventoried items will be sent to the student at the student's home address on file with the university, informing him/her that he/she has three weeks to claim the property. Items not retrieved within the time limit will be donated to a local charity or disposed of at that time. The university has no liability for the loss or damage to a resident's personal property if the property has been abandoned.
