Significant resources have been invested in new lounge and study room furniture during the last few years. Additional improvements continue to be scheduled as funds permit. In order to better manage the furniture, University Housing staff are cooperatively monitoring community lounges and apartments rooms to assure none of the furniture is damaged or disappears. Residents are asked to respect the spaces by not removing the furniture and by limiting the use of food or drinks to avoid spills and stains. Common area furniture is not to be moved outside its assigned areas, especially into individual rooms. Residents found moving furniture will be considered and treated as stealing university property and will be charged in the student conduct process.
