Orientation for transfer students will take place on Monday, September 5 after move-in. As details are finalized, they will be available on the Orientation website.

Room Set-Up

Both due to a limited supply of extra bed frames and being that students will be not tripled this year, beds may not be lofted, however, beds may be adjusted in height. Although the beds are not lofted, they will be set to the highest adjustment (approximately 28-30 inches high) to provide storage underneath. We chose this as the standard it is the most common furniture set-up that students request.

Facilities Services will be available in the residence halls on move-in day to assist students who wish to adjust their bed height and/or move furniture.

Room Condition Form (RCF)

When you first arrive in your room, you will be asked to document any damage you see on the Room Condition Form (RCF) in ResLife Online. It is your responsibility to document the condition of your room and include comments or photos as necessary.

Checking Out of Your Room

At the end of the semester, you must move out of your residence hall within 24 hours of your last final exam. View the Academic Calendar.

You are responsible for leaving your room in the same clean and orderly condition in which it was found and for completing all check-out procedures. Your RA cannot make damage assessments or quote any prices or conditions. If you wish to talk about any costs associated with damage billing, contact your residence director.

Personal belongings may not be stored on campus during summer. Fisher may dispose of any and all items left in the residence halls after the end of the academic year in May. Fisher may also dispose of any belongings you leave if you withdraw, are suspended, expelled, or removed from the residence halls, or if you vacate your room for any other reason.

You will be charged a removal fee for all personal items and furniture left in your room at the end of the school year.

Once an initial inspection has been conducted, your RA will forward your completed RCF to the residence director. In conjunction with Facilities Services, if Residential Life finds that your room or items in your room have been damaged beyond normal wear, or if Fisher property is missing, you will be billed the appropriate amount (as determined by Facilities Services) for material and labor-related costs in repairing and/or cleaning the room and/or the cost to replace Fisher property.

You will be notified of your charges and the date to appeal damage charges through your Fisher email address after the close of the semester.

Keys and IDs

You will be issued an ID and room key when you arrive on campus. A closet key may be requested from your RD if you have a lockable closet.

Lost room and/or closet keys should be reported to the RD immediately. For lost room keys, a $50 replacement fee will be charged, the lock will be changed, and all roommates will be issued new keys. Lost closet keys will be replaced for $10. Failure to return keys at the time of checkout will result in replacement key charges.

A lost ID must be reported to the Office of Safety and Security immediately. There is a fee for ID replacement.
