Furniture

Furnished student room and apartments come with a standard set of furniture. If a piece of furniture is missing from your assigned space when you move in be sure to notify Housing Maintenance and note it on the Room Condition Form.

If your room has all the provided furniture Housing Maintenance cannot swap based on personal preference. Student room furniture (including built-ins, bed frames and mattresses) is the responsibility of each resident. If you do not want some or all of the normally provided room furniture you will need to store it yourself and return it when you vacate the room.

If we find furniture sitting outside of a room, apartment or house we will notify the house president, steward, RA or RLC asking that they find the resident to whom the furniture belongs so they can claim it or it will be removed. Removed or unclaimed furniture cannot be reclaimed upon move out, regardless of when that occurs. It will be the responsibility of the resident to return all furnishings to the original set-up. The resident will be responsible for any missing/damaged furniture.

Pilot Lighting

If your furnace pilot has been turned off, you can make an appointment with Housing Maintenance to relight it. Please schedule this service prior to cold weather to avoid lengthier waits for an appointment.
