Nuts & Bolts

Empty Space In Your Apartment? 
Please welcome the new residents who are still moving in for the summer. If there is an empty space in your apartment, please don’t spread your belongings out. Remember to leave space for new residents in the bedroom, closet, kitchen and bathroom.

 
Cleaning Carpets And Apartments 
  • Carpet cleaning will take place in Housing through June 15 (new date) from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Be careful, don’t step over any hoses. There will be loud noises during this time.
  • The cleaning company will be entering apartments through June 14 to clean apartments from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
 
Keys
If you misplace or lose your keys, you must report it to the Housing Office immediately. In addition, never lend your apartment or bedroom key to anyone (including your roommates and housemates) under any circumstances. It is a policy violation to do so.
 
Having A Visitor Or Guests Over
Your apartment is a shared living space, which requires roommates and housemates to agree on standards for visitors and overnight guests. Visitors must be escorted at all times, they are not allowed to stay in apartment without their host. Remember, there are limits to the number of guests you may have and how long they can stay, which is outlined in the 2019–2020 Student Guide.

Community Safety Over The Summer
With fewer residents on campus, keep in the mind the following safety tips to prevent theft and keep yourself safe: 
  • Make sure the door to your apartment is locked at all times. 
  • Keep your windows and patio door closed and locked, especially if you are on the first floor, even when you are home. 
  • Don't let anyone into your apartment who you don't know. If a person comes over to visit a housemate, your housemate should be home to let them in. 
  • Keep your keys on you at all times. If you lose your keys, report it immediately to the Office of Housing and Residence Life in order to have the lock changed.
  • Be smart with your car. Always keep it locked. If you don’t drive it every day, check on it periodically and move it occasionally so it does not appear abandoned. 
  • Always walk with others. At night, when on campus, call the campus escort at 323-343-3700. 
  • Add emergency numbers to your cell phone: Campus Police (323) 343-3700 and the Summer Community Assistant on Duty (323) 343-4807. Remember, 9-1-1 connects you to the Highway Patrol. Use this if you are away from campus. If you are on or near campus, use the number for Campus Police for faster response.
  • Put your credit-card companies’ phone numbers in your cell phone. If your wallet is stolen, you’ll need the numbers to cancel your credit cards.
