The use of any type of video camera device in the halls to capture the images of an individual
other than the camera owner without the individual’s consent is strictly prohibited. Residents
found in violation of this policy are subject to severe sanctions, including the possibility of eviction.
Within the public areas of the halls, the prohibition includes, but is not limited to, cell phone
cameras and Web/Cyber cameras, wired or remote, that are streaming images of another
individual without his/her knowledge. Within a resident’s room, the privacy rights of roommates
must be respected at all times and the Policy on Sexual Misconduct observed. It is a violation of
Housing policy to use a video camera in a manner likely to embarrass the camera owner’s
roommate or acquaintance. Housing staff reserves the right to take possession of equipment found
in violation of this policy. Questions about camera devices should be directed to the University
Housing & Dining Administrative Office, 4141 Burge Hall, which does authorize the use of video
camera devices in some situations.
Windows & Screens
Due to the potential danger to lives and property, and out of consideration for the rights and privacy of others, the following regulations must be observed:
Screens are not to be unhooked or removed from windows for any reason. A fee will be assessed for re-hanging screens, as well as additional fees if the screen is damaged.
Residents of a room or building are responsible for any objects ejected from windows, fire escapes, or roofs, and are subject to disciplinary action.
Windows are not to be used for entrances or exits.
Windows should remain closed during periods of high winds and/or heavy rains.
These are written requests to reconfigure or repair your room equipment or furnishings or to
remove and store University equipment as storage space permits. (University Housing & Dining
only stores bunk bed parts from beds in Mayflower. See Storage, page 27.) Go to your front desk
to place a work order. A copy of the work order will be left in your room when the work is
completed. If the work is not completed to your satisfaction, do not file a new work order. Bring
the matter to your area coordinator or hall coordinator’s attention or call the University Housing &
Dining facilities office at (319) 335-9970.
