Students should not make modifications to the residence room or its furnishings (i.e., disassembling furniture, hanging items from ceiling tile supports, tampering with telephone wires, etc.). Furniture may not be removed from the room.
For student safety all elevated sleeping surfaces have bed safety rails installed. It becomes the student's resposiblity to enter a work order if a bed safety rail is missing or not secured to any elevated surface in their room. Work orders must be submitted on the Field Operation's Work Order System.
Students are not permitted to ever remove the bed safety rail.
Furniture must not obstruct access to headboard or footboard used as a ladder. For student safety, bunking, debunking and height adjustment of bunk beds and loft kits must be requested on the Field Operations Work Order system. The request will be performed only by Field Operations' approved staff.
Any questions regarding residence room furnishings should be addressed to the Resident Director or Resident Assistant. Student Leadership does not have the authority to allow or perform the assembly, disassembly or removal of furniture.
In Residence Halls M07, M17-M19 and the LU Residential Annex, furniture and personal belongings must be kept at least 48 inches from the front of the air conditioning units so that airflow is not restricted.
It is necessary for every resident to share the responsibility for the safety and security of his/her residence hall. The following is a list of safety/security violations (this list is not all inclusive):
Commission of any safety/security violation will result in a $100 fine. If the violation occurs in a residence room and no one claims responsibility, the consequences will be shared equally among the occupants of the room. If the violation occurs in the residence hall (or any commons area) and no one claims responsibility, the fine will be divided equally among all occupants of the residence.
