PEOPLE NOT RETURNING NEXT SEMESTER AND THOSE CHANGING ROOMS
If you are not returning to PC next semester (internships, study abroad, etc…), you must check out of your room with your RA, RD, or an Assistant Director. Students who have already received permission to change their room assignments are reminded that these changes must be made before you leave for the break. Failure to properly check out of your room and/or return your key will result in a series of fines. Residents who are moving out MUST clean their space and remove all personal belongings from the room.

- Thoroughly clean room before leaving. Empty wastebaskets and discard perishable food.
- Lock windows and unplug all electronics.
- Do not leave valuables in the room.
- Turn off all lights and lock the door.
- The last resident of each room to leave should post the door sign given to you by your RA/RD.
- A residential life staff member will check each room for compliance with the above expectations.
COLLEGE HEALTH AND SAFETY INSPECTIONS
Safety inspections will be conducted in rooms after students leave. While the purpose of these inspections is not to search for policy violations, we are obligated to report any and all violations we see in the course of our safety inspection (i.e. empty alcohol containers, candles, theft of College property, etc.). Note that we will not look in drawers or closets; however, we will take note of any concerns in “plain view”. Take this opportunity to take prohibited items home with you.
