Don’t Leave Unwanted Items in Your Room!
State laws prohibit us from collecting and donating items that are left in residence hall rooms after move-out. Leaving unwanted items in your room not only results in a penalty to your housing accounting and creates additional work for housekeeping staff, but also increases the chance that unwanted items end up in a landfill or state auction.
