B. Use of Dwellings and Grounds (2017)

1. Appliances. All electrical items in a room must be UL listed or recognized to a UL standard by a nationally recognized testing laboratory. Coffee pots, popcorn poppers, irons, and hot pots may be used but cannot be plugged in unattended. Refrigerators that stand less than 35" in height and draw no more than 1.5 amp of power are allowed to a maximum of one per every two assigned room occupants. Microwaves up to 800 watts of power output are acceptable.

2. Cleanliness. Students are responsible for maintaining reasonable sanitation and safety standards in their rooms, suites and apartments (including suite and apartment bathrooms). If upon inspection, University staff finds safety and sanitation below standard, the student will receive a written request prescribing corrective action. If after a reasonable time the corrective action has not occurred, the University will perform the needed work at the student's expense.

3. Furnishings. Each bedroom will be furnished with a bed, desk, desk chair, dresser and closet space for each resident. Closet space may be shared. Bed rails are standard equipment in rooms where beds can be elevated and must be used any time the bed is raised above its lowest position. University supplied furniture may not be moved from the originally assigned room to any other on or off-campus location and may not be stored in any suite or apartment bathroom. Students are prohibited from taking furniture from common spaces in the residence hall or apartment building and placing it in a student room, apartment or any other on or off-campus location. Such action shall be considered theft.

4. Maintenance. Routine maintenance needs should be reported in a timely manner to the online maintenance management system, famis.unh.edu. The University reserves the right to perform any and all needed maintenance. If maintenance is needed, it is the responsibility of the resident to notify the maintenance and/or Housing staff, at the onset of each instance, about any personal, medical, or health concern which may be impacted by the work.

5. Trash Removal. Students are solely responsible for bagging trash which accumulates in their room or apartment and disposing of such trash by depositing it in the designated dumpster, trash compactor, and/or recycling container. Personal room or apartment trash may not be placed in common area trash receptacles.

6. Bicycles. Bicycles are to be parked and secured only in places provided for that purpose. Bicycles may not be attached to stair railings (exterior/interior), building entrances, light poles, trees, sign posts, etc. A student is required to remove their bicycle(s) prior to their designated move-out date. Abandoned bicycles will be removed.

7. General. The University reserves the right to inspect students' rooms or apartments to ensure compliance with section F-9, Fire Prevention/Drills/Alarms/Equipment, reserves the right to recommend to the appropriate disciplinary body the termination of any Agreement, and will control the rooms or apartments in case of an epidemic.
