Cleaning and Maintenance

  1. It is the responsibility of each student to clean and maintain his/her room, apartment, and/or house. Keeping the common spaces clean within one’s building is also part of the living experience at Heidelberg.
  2. Vacuum cleaners and brooms are provided in each residence building for student use. Damaged or missing vacuums/brooms will be charged to all residents within that community for replacement.
  3. All trash must be bagged and carried to the closest dumpster outside the residence halls/apartments. Campus houses have individual disposal bins that must be carried to the curb before 6:00 a.m. on their designated pick-up day (Wednesday mornings).
  4. Residents will be fined for trash left outside their room, in hallways or kitchens, or in common area (i.e.; lounges, kitchens, bathrooms) trash bins. It is the responsibility of the student to take personal and/or bagged trash to the outside dumpsters without delay. Community damages may apply to all residents if personal trash cannot be identified.
  5. Rooms, apartments and/or houses must be left in a clean condition at the end of the contract period
    and at holiday and break closings. Hall staff will conduct regular inspections throughout the year.
