Housing Closes Soon…

As your begin making your summer plans, please remember that all residential units must be vacated by noon on Saturday, May 15, 2010. Only graduating seniors and students who have been pre-approved by the Office of Residential Life can remain in their rooms after Noon on May 15, 2010.

Students who fail to check out of their rooms will incur a late checkout fine of $250.00 and may also incur per diem charges until they vacate their rooms.

Physical Plant Room Inspections:

After you move out, Physical Plant will conduct an inspection. A complete list of fines can be found at http://www.wesleyan.edu/pplant/housingguidelines.htm. Your student account will be charged for any damage, missing furniture, or cleaning services that are required. All floors, walls, sinks, tubs/showers, refrigerators, and stoves should be clean and in good condition. This includes removing anything you may have on your door. A guideline you should use is that your residential space should be found in the same condition as when you moved in.

If you have official University business (i.e. work or classes) and need to remain on campus after Noon on May 15, 2010, you must apply for an extension with ResLife. Applications are available at http://www.wesleyan.edu/reslife/. Please note that applying for an extension does not guarantee approval, as only extenuating circumstances will be considered. Applications are due on April 30, 2010.

Students who are approved to stay past noon on May 15, 2010 will be required to move out of their spring housing assignment into alternate housing if they live in Hewitt, Fauver Residence Hall, Clark Hall, or Russian House.

Graduating seniors are automatically approved to stay in their current housing assignment until 4:30 pm on Monday, May 24, 2010 and do not have to submit an application.

All students will receive a key return envelope in their University mailbox on April 30th. Students are expected to return this envelope with housing keys to the Office of Residential Life.

Students who have compost buckets, please return them at the end of the semester to the shed behind Turath House (22 Lawn) near Hall-Atwater.

Students who wish to donate unwanted items to be recycled are encouraged to participate in Waste Not! Waste Not! drop-off points will be distributed throughout lounges and hallways across campus. Students living in program houses or woodframes should email wesustainability@gmail.com to arrange for a pick up.

The Honor Board is now accepting applications from the sophomore class for two openings on the Board for the next four semesters, starting in the Fall of 2010.

The standards of academic conduct that constitute the Honor Code are enforced by students by means of the Honor Board. The Board, which adjudicates violations of the Honor Code, exists for several related reasons

  • to afford the protection of fair process to students alleged to have violated the Honor Code
  • to ensure that sanctions are commensurate with violations, and
  • to promote uniformity in the handling of cases.

Furthermore, the Honor Board serves as a constant reminder of institutional values. Initial adjudication of alleged violations of the Honor Code must issue from the Honor Board.

Please refer to the Student Handbook for more information  at http://www.wesleyan.edu/studenthandbook/3_honorsystem.html.

Please complete the application form and submit it to Lorna Scott, at lscott@wesleyan.edu.  Applications are due by 4:00 p.m. on Monday, May 3, 2010.
