Dormitory Room Painting Fine Reminder
In accordance with a long standing University policy, painting and or spackling of dormitory rooms is not permitted. Students who violate this policy and paint their own rooms will be fined and charged for repainting (by University painters). Students may not attempt to restore their rooms to the original color.
Starting with the 2010-2011 academic year the department of Housing and Real Estate Services announces additional charges will be assessed:
- Immediately upon discovery that any portion of any wall has been painted, a $500. fine per student will be issued to each student account. If one occupant accepts sole responsibility for a fine, that occupant will be fined the single fine amount (not the multiplied amount)
- Students will be financially responsible for restoration of the room. Charges will be determined as a function of labor, time and materials. Students will not be permitted to repaint their rooms or contract with anyone to paint their room. The total charge will be divided among the occupants and issued to each student account. If one student accepts sole responsibility that individual will be charged the entire amount. Repainting charges will be published in the 2010-2011 Residential Living Guide.
Posters have been distributed on campus to remind students of the paint policy.
