Policy Statement

Students should report maintenance needs by calling Residential Operations at (603) 646-1203 during weekly business hours, and the College Troubleshooter at (603) 646-2344 at other times.

Inspections of student rooms in College-owned facilities are conducted during the interim period between academic terms. New occupants are expected to examine their rooms, fill out the Room Inventory Condition Form on the web, and submit the form within two weeks from the date their assignment begins.

  • If the room occupants do not submit the inventory form by the deadline, it will be assumed the room is in excellent condition and any damage or loss will be assessed equally.
  • The cost of repairing any damage or breakage that was not reported on the inventory form is billed directly to the occupants of the room.
  • When an inspection reveals maintenance needs, the Operations staff will contact Facilities Operations and Management to do plumbing, electrical, painting or carpentry work.
  • When an inspection reveals unreported damage, missing furniture or possible violations of College policy, the residents of the room will be notified and any applicable charges will be assessed and disciplinary action may be taken.
