F. Entry

The College intends to ensure all reasonable privacy in student living quarters. However, in the interest of the health, safety, and general welfare of the entire College community, the College reserves the right to enter and inspect all on-campus housing facilities at any time upon giving student(s) verbal and/or written notice to do so. The College also reserves the right to enter a student’s living quarters to retrieve College property. Students are required to respond to all requests for admittance in a timely manner.

Additionally, authorized College staff may access any room at reasonable times (reasonableness may be dictated by circumstances) for the purpose of inspecting and addressing concerns and conditions related to safety, health, and compliance with College policies and on-campus housing facilities regulations. Although rooms may be entered and inspected, personal belongings will not be searched without the permission of the owner or a valid warrant unless law enforcement deems such a search to be appropriate under applicable law. When possible, advance notice will be provided to the occupants prior to an inspection taking place.
