Medical Dental Apartment Policies

Medical Dental Apartments are twelve-month license agreement apartments. Residents in these apartments are responsible for reading and understanding all information contained in the following policies as well as in the general Assignment Policies. Questions regarding these policies should be directed to the Campus Housing Office in Stevenson Hall.

Bedroom Occupancy

The fire code requires that each bedroom in Medical-Dental Apartments should hold no more than two adults and one child. Individuals with children will be assigned to the Medical-Dental Apartments.

Cancellation

Apartment licenses are binding for one year (May 1 – May 1).  For information regarding cancellation, please review the Cancellation Policy

Change in Marital Status

When spouses become separated or divorced, it is the responsibility of the resident to notify the Campus Housing Office that a spouse is no longer a resident of their apartment and that the housing agreement should be changed.  If the staff become aware of such a change in status from some other source and confirm that information with the resident, the same procedure should occur.  Building staff need to be notified by the Housing staff person receiving the information, so that access is denied should the spouse, who is no longer a resident, request admittance.  Whenever a staff person is in doubt of the status of a married couple, he/she should contact the resident before allowing anyone entrance into an apartment.  If the resident is not available, check with the apartment manager or the Housing Office.

Change of Address

Each time a resident moves (including changing apartments and moving out), a change of address form must be completed and sent to the US Post Office.  Forms are available online on the United States Postal Service website.

Maintenance

Staff will enter apartments to fix reported repairs and for regular maintenance.  Signs will be posted to alert you to these entries when possible.  Your apartment will be entered even if you are not there.  If you are concerned that you may not hear a knock and be walked in on, use the door chain to lock your door.   Remember, however, that we must be able to enter your apartment for our regular maintenance routines.  You will be contacted if chaining your door prevents this on a regular basis.
