» Room Maintenance
Cleanliness of a unit is the shared responsibility of all residents assigned to that unit. All public areas of the unit are
to be kept clean and in good condition, at all times. All residents of the unit are to share public areas so that equal
space is provided to each resident. Individual bedrooms are the sole responsibility of the assigned resident(s) and
are to be kept clean and in good condition at all times. If a new resident is assigned to a unit, the existing resident is
responsible for providing/presenting a clean public area of that unit. There are cleaning supplies available at the
Summit Hall & Horizon Hall offices. We have vacuums, mops, brooms, dust pans, and cleaning chemicals available
for residents to check out.
To complement the beauty and community environment offered within Residence Life, all residents are required to
take trash to the proper trash disposal areas. Proper disposal of trash will help keep costs lower at Miner Village.
Trash left outside the front doors to units is not permitted. Trash left in front of the doors, on landings, or disposed of
in an inappropriate manner will be identified and the responsible student will be charged a disposal fee.
P. I. C. K. – People Innovating Change & Knowledge
Residents are asked to collect all accepted recyclable items in the small blue container given at check-in. Notices will
be posted in the laundry rooms, on bulletin boards and via e-mail to notify residents of pick up locations. For more
information or to volunteer please contact the Summit Hall Office (747-5352) or talk to any Residence Life Assistant.
Residents are encouraged to decorate their units to make them feel like home. However, certain considerations
must be made with regards to walls and ceilings. Residents may not hang anything from the ceilings of the unit.
Pictures, posters and other items of familiarity may be placed on walls in such a way that damage to the wall will be
avoided. Decorations should not cover smoke detectors or fire sprinklers. Any holes or marks on the walls, not present
at the time of check in, will be the responsibility of the resident at the time of check out. Residence Life Assistants
will make an assessment of any damage to unit walls during a room inspection and assign charges accordingly.
Garbage Disposal Maintenance
To help maintain water flow through the disposal, residents are advised to turn the water on before they start the
disposal and turn it off after the unit has stopped. Residents must properly dispose of cooking grease. After cooking,
let grease cool to room temperature. Transfer grease to a separate leak-proof container before disposing in the
dumpsters located outside the complex. Grease should not be put in the sinks or in the garbage disposal. For garbage disposal repair, residents must submit a work order.
If the resident decides to paint any walls all painted walls must be repainted to the quality, color and consistancy as
it was when first moving in. Contact the property manager before painting to fully understand the standards needed
when restoring any walls.
