- All roommates must thoroughly clean the room. Note: Your room should be in the same CLEAN condition as it was when you moved in. If your room is not clean you will be assessed a fee!
- Begin discarding some of the unwanted items you have accumulated throughout the year. For convenience and safety of others, keep all debris and belongings out of the hallways and suite lounges.
- Additional trash dumpsters will be in place so students can dispose of unwanted items. If possible, please attempt to reuse or donate unwanted items.
