All Residential Students must check out with a member of the Residential Life Staff once they have vacated the residence halls for any reason. Students will complete a Room Condition Form (and receive a copy) to assess any visible damage during their check out. A thorough walk-through will be done by Campus Operations to assess any vandalism. A completed Room Condition Form with no damage documented does not mean that a room will not receive a damage bill.
Damage Billing is a collaboration between Campus Operations and the Office of Residential Life, and is submitted to Student Accounts for billing. Campus Operations and/or an outside company have determined the cost of the repair, including both labor and parts/materials.
If you accept the charges, please DO NOT send a check to the Office of Residential Life. All payments should be directed to Student Accounts.
If you have received a Damage Bill that you do not feel responsible for, please do the following:
- Please write or type an appeal letter explaining why you should not be held responsible for the specific charges. Please be as specific as possible.
- Send that letter via mail to:
The Office of Residential Life
Sacred Heart University
5151 Park Avenue
Fairfield, CT 06825
Your appeal letter MUST be postmarked no later than AUGUST 1. Appeals via emails and/or phone call cannot be accepted.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our office at 203-416-3417.
