Assignments, Room Changes, & Apartment Maintenance
Assignments are made without regard to race, sexual orientation, religion, or national origin. Any request for a change in room assignment based upon these reasons will be rejected.
Room changes are possible and will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Room changes are completed based on availability of space and willingness of other residents to move. In order to change rooms, residents must first complete a room change request form. Depending on the circumstances for the room change request, residents may be required to meet with a Resident Assistant or other Residence Life staff member to discuss the reason for the room change request. Part of the room change request process may include a roommate mediation a Residence Life staff member.
All room changes must be approved by the office. Any resident who changes rooms without the prior approval of the office will be in violation of the terms and conditions of the contract and may be assessed a charge for an improper room change.
Residents are responsible for maintaining the cleanliness of their apartment as well as reporting any maintenance issues to the office as soon as possible. This includes cleaning the apartment regularly and taking trash out to the dumpster.
Health and safety inspections will be conducted at least once per semester. Residents may sign up for a specific date and time with their Resident Assistant. The dates of these inspections will be posted at least 48 hours in advance. If a resident fails his/her initial inspection, a second inspection will be conducted. If the resident fails the second inspection, a charge may be assessed.
IU Southeast staff and their designees may enter apartments for the purpose of law enforcement, routine and emergency maintenance, safety inspections, and emergency situations.
