It also is used for the purchase of vacuums,TVs, microwaves, and other hall improvements as determined by the Hall Council.

Remember that many of our check-in days have been fairly hot so a little extra patience could make the day go more smoothly for everyone!

The University is not responsible or liable for any loss or damage to property resulting from fire, theft, casualty or any cause, or for personal injury occurring within the leased premises, except as may be required by Virginia law. It is strongly recommended that personal property insurance be obtained by each student for his or her belongings. Renter's insurance is offered by most major insurance companies; some companies actually offer the option of a rider on a homeowner's policy to cover the belongings of students away at college. We recommend that you contact your current insurance provider or visit these informational websites quotes, guide, reviews, to examine your options.
