Student Room and Residence Hall Upkeep
As part of the Haverford community, students living on campus assume a shared responsibility to treat their rooms, residence halls, and campus in general with respect and care.
Students are expected to keep their room, common areas, lounges, hallways, stairwells, and the residence halls in general – reasonably clean and in good order. Students’ responsibilities also include, but not limited to the following: taking care of and the proper use of – including not moving it elsewhere – the College-owned furniture that has been assigned to them, and for the timely reporting of any housekeeping, maintenance, or Campus Safety problems in residence halls. Students are responsible for removing and properly disposing of their own trash, garbage, and recycling on a regular basis in order to avoid creating health and safety hazards for themselves or other residents.
For safe egress in an emergency, students are responsible for keeping their belongings out of hallways and stairwells.
Should it come to the College’s attention that a student’s or group of students’ lifestyle is creating unsanitary and/or hazardous conditions, the student(s) will be expected to cooperate with College staff and/or administration to correct any problems to the College’s satisfaction. Failure to do so may jeopardize the student’s or group of students’ right either to remain in current housing or to obtain such housing in the future. Students are also expected to respect the outside areas they use on the campus. Students are responsible for removing and properly disposing of their trash, garbage, and recycling when they outside, too, and for not causing harm to the campus grounds and property.
