Summer Housing Agreement (2013)
The following is the text of the summer housing agreement that all summer residents must sign. Copies are available in the residence life office.
The undersigned individual (hereinafter Resident), hereby agrees to lease and occupy an assigned space in a Cornell College (hereinafter College) residence hall or other College-owned or College-leased residential building (hereinafter Hall) for Summer 2013. The College hereby agrees to lease and permit said occupancy, according to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
Dates of Occupancy
Terms of this agreement begin on Thursday, May 9, 2013, and end on Saturday, August 31, 2013. Current 2012-2013 rooms will be vacated no later than 6 p.m. on Sunday, May 12, 2013. Residents with a fall on-campus assignment will be moved to that assignment in mid-August. Specific dates will be announced at a later time. Residents who do not have a fall on-campus assignment will need to vacate summer housing at that time. The College reserves the right to amend these dates if unforeseeable situations arise.
Charges are $750 per person for a space in a double occupancy room and $935 per person for a space in a single occupancy room. Air conditioned rooms may be available and Resident will be charged additional fees to cover the rental and energy use ($900 per person for a space in a double occupancy room and $1235 per person in a space in a single occupancy room). Resident must work with the Business Office to arrange payment prior to being assigned.
The College shall accept no responsibility for the damage, theft, or loss of money, valuables, or other personal belongings of the Resident. The College encourages students to obtain appropriate insurance coverage through their family's homeowner's policy or a separate renter's policy.
Right of Entry
College representatives may enter Halls and Resident rooms at any time for the purposes of: 1) making necessary or agreed-upon repairs; 2) supplying necessary or agreed-upon services; 3) investigating health or safety concerns; or 4) ensuring compliance with evacuation procedures during a fire alarm; 5) responding to a disruption (e.g. to silence a loud alarm clock or stereo when no one is in the room); or 6) enforcing College policy when there is specific reason to suspect a violation.
The Resident shall not assign this Agreement or any interest under it, or sublet the premises or any part thereof, or permit the use or occupancy of the premises or any part thereof by anyone other than the Resident. Short-term guests are permitted in accordance with the Residence Hall Policies.
The College reserves the right to make changes in room assignments and to assign the Resident to any room at any time. The College reserves the right to assign new roommates or consolidate partially empty rooms at any time.
The College reserves the right to terminate this Agreement without refund because of improper conduct. If employment with the College is terminated for any reason, this agreement will be terminated and eligibility for any refund will be determined by the College refund policy. If this happens, the Resident shall vacate the Halls by the date and time as agreed upon with or as directed by a College official, generally within 48 hours of termination of employment.
The Resident is held accountable for property damage in the assigned room and/or in the public areas of the assigned Hall. The Resident may be charged for repair or replacement costs due to the removal or destruction of property in the assigned Hall.
The Resident agrees to comply with this Agreement's terms and conditions as well as those outlined in College publications related to policy, procedure and student conduct. These publications may be amended from time to time and include, but are not limited to, the Cornell College Catalogue, The Compass and the Residence Life Handbook.
