Safety and Maintenance Inspection

The University reserves the right to enter students' rooms for the purpose of showing the room, inspecting the room, or for responding to maintenance needs. In addition, the University reserves the right to make appropriate inspections as necessary to help guarantee that state laws and University policies are being followed and that the health, safety and welfare of its students are ensured. Such inspections will be made at least as often as the residence halls close for a break period. Illegal materials, drugs or items that pose an immediate danger to the health or safety of the residents, will be removed if they are noticed in the course of a room inspection. The student will be notified of this action immediately.

A student's room will not be entered without knocking. A sufficient time lapse will be allowed to provide the resident ample opportunity to open the door. If no response is received, the room may be entered to make appropriate inspections as necessary.
