Check Out & Damage Billing Information

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:

  1. 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.

  2. 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.
