A final inspection of every room will be made by the Facilities staff. All damages other than normal wear and tear will be documented and charged to the resident(s).

If you are not returning to Michigan Tech residence halls next year, you must remove all items you have in storage no later than April 21.
If you are returning to the halls next year, Housing has limited storage space for your belongings. All items you leave in storage must be properly labeled and sealed in a box or plastic bin. Only RAs may store items for residents in DHH, McNair, and Wadsworth. Storage is not available in Hillside. We do not have end of the year storage for large furniture items like futons and chairs. We do not assume responsibility for items left in storage over the summer. You will not have access to the items you have in summer storage until the residence halls open in the fall. Items left in storage over the summer which are not properly labeled will be removed and discarded.
The Campus Bookstore will not have a table set up in Wadsworth Hall this year for book buyback. Bookstore staff will be in the Dateline Room of the MUB between 8:00am and 5:00pm during finals week to buy back used books.
