Apartment Council

Apartment Council is your opportunity to make your voice heard about Evans Apartments policies, programs and the purchase of equipment for residents. It is a great way to get involved and be instrumental in governing the area. The Apartment Council is the active interpreter of the university’s principle of self-determination. Self-determination allows members of a residential area to develop the guidelines and procedures of self-governance, which allows for both individual freedom and the privacy and personal rights of others in the community. Evans Complex residents enact this responsibility through their building representatives to the Council.

Residents have the opportunity to develop guidelines pertaining to safety, security and the maintenance of a clean and pleasant apartment community. Any resident of the Evans Apartments who has paid the annual Apartment Council dues may become a voting member of the Council. The Apartment Council upholds its fiduciary responsibility through the sound management of the Council funds. For more information, contact the Community Director or your RA.
