Energy Consumption

Please do your part to reduce energy costs. Make a conscious effort to turn off lights and other electrical equipment when not in use.

Housing Fees

Fees for student housing are listed in the Fee Schedule section of the current Academic Catalog. Students commit to residing in student housing for the entire trimester.  Residents who move out before the end of the trimester will forfeit their security deposit and will be responsible for the entire trimester’s rent.  Students may vacate at the end of the trimester without penalty by filling out the Housing Intention Form and complying with all housing check-out procedures.

Housing Deposit

A $200 security deposit is required before housing requests are processed. This deposit must be paid to the Business Office and will remain on file throughout your Housing Contract term. Deposits will not be refunded for room cancellations made less than 30 days prior to the published move-in date.

Your room damage deposit is returned from the Business Office when:

■ Check-out is complete and confirmation is on file with the Business Office.

■ Financial clearance can only be obtained by the Business Office.

Laundry Facilities

Student Housing is equipped with three laundry facilities. Two are located at Bay Run and one at LaSalle. Students supply their own laundry detergent and supplies. The University does not assume responsibility for damaged or lost clothing during the use of laundry facilities.

Mail

Each apartment in student housing is assigned a mailbox. Mail is distributed Monday through Saturday and students are required to check their mailbox every 24 hours. Failure to check mail every 24 hours will result in a $25 per day fine. Packages must be signed for by the addressee and may be picked up at the Student Housing Office.

Maintaining Your Apartment

To foster good relationships and mutual respect, roommates should share the responsibilities of cleaning apartments. Extreme uncleanliness will jeopardize your ability to live in student housing and may result in forfeiture of the security deposit. Each resident is held responsible by housing staff to keep apartments clean.

New students check into housing throughout the trimester, and they expect to move into a clean apartment at Bay Run or LaSalle. Therefore, apartments should always be clean and ready for a new roommate.

Suggested Cleaning Schedule:

  1. The floors in each area should be vacuumed or mopped at least once a week.
  2. The kitchen and bathroom should be cleaned. Dirty dishes should be cleaned after each meal.
  3. The unoccupied bed, desk, and chest should be free of the occupying roommate’s belongings.
  4. Half of the closet should be empty and clean.

A clean apartment and enough room to move in always makes a new resident feel welcome. If a new resident checks into a dirty room or apartment and immediate cleaning is necessary, a professional will be hired to clean the apartment and a cleaning fee will be charged to the current residents.

Room Damage

Residents should keep their apartments clean and in good condition at all times.  Residents are responsible for the condition of their apartment.  Charges incurred for damages will be deducted from the $200 security deposit.  Damages in excess of $200 will be billed appropriately.

Damages are defined as repair or replacement of an item that is caused by activity or use beyond what is deemed normal wear and tear, even if the damage were accidental.

Moving Out of Student Housing

If a student does not enroll for the following term or has not made prior arrangements with the Dean, he or she is required to check out of student housing within three (3) days after their last exam, class, or graduation.  Failure to notify the housing office of your intent to vacate student housing at least thirty (30) days prior to the last day of the trimester will result in forfeiture of the security deposit.   Moving out after the deadline will result in the loss of the security deposit and a $50 per day charge to the student’s account.  Moving out of student housing on Saturday or Sunday is prohibited.

Repairs

Work Order Slips may be obtained from the Desk Receptionist in the Student Housing Office. Requests will be processed daily with the Maintenance Department. If your request has not been completed within 48 hours, please notify the Desk Receptionist and submit a second request. For emergencies, please contact the Dean, your RA, or the Desk Receptionist at 407.896.5869.

Room Changes

Residents may not move from one room to another or from one apartment to another without making arrangements with the Dean. When a change is desired, the following procedures must be followed:

  • Talk to your roommate before requesting a change. This courtesy will help the process go smoothly.
  • Talk with your Resident Assistant.
  • Contact the Dean in person or via e-mail. If approval is received, follow established Check-in/Check-out procedures.
  • The College reserves the right to change room or apartment assignments in the interest of health, discipline, or the general welfare of the residents and the University.

Apartment Check-In

When you are assigned an apartment or move to a different apartment, complete a Check-in Form obtained at the Student Housing Office. It is important to list apartment damages on the Check-in Form before moving into an apartment. This form will be used for inspection when vacating the apartment.

The Check-in Form must be returned to the Student Housing Office before moving any personal items into the apartment.

Apartment Check-Out

When all personal items have been removed from your assigned apartment, three forms 1) the Apartment Check-out sheet cleaning list, 2) the Apartment Check-in/ Check-out Form, and 3) the Change of Address Form must be completed and returned to the Student Housing Office with your apartment key, mailbox key, and parking decal. The Dean or an RA must check you out. You must notify the Housing Office at least 24 hours in advance of checking out to make a check-out appointment. Check-out hours are Monday - Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Please note:

  • Failure to check out properly will result in forfeiture of the security deposit.
  • Adventist University of Health Sciences has no summer storage space.
  • Items left in an apartment upon check-out become the property of the University.

Trash

Place all trash in sealed bags in the outdoor dumpsters located near the parking areas. Trash from your apartment should be emptied daily.
