Fri 6/13/2014 11:03 AM

Beginning Monday, June 16, 2014 Housing staff will be entering all apartments to inspect for end of year damages and maintenance issues. All apartments will receive a canine (dog) inspection for bed bugs and an outside cleaning agency will be cleaning all vacant spaces and common areas, to include bathrooms, kitchens, living and dining rooms. This will include carpet cleaning. We anticipate this may take up to two weeks to complete all apartments.

If you are staying for the entire year (summer through next academic year), Housing staff will also be entering your bedroom to assess its condition. If any maintenance issues or cleaning is required, you will be notified. Please keep your valuables secured and personal belongings restricted to your assigned area. Items in the bathroom and kitchen will not be thrown out, though may be moved in order to clean. Please try to keep these areas as clear as possible.

If you are transferring to your summer space on Wednesday, June 18th, we will attempt to clean after you have left. If your space is needed for another resident or conference group, a cleaning crew may begin as early as Monday but anticipated to be on Wednesday and will work around your move.

We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we conduct our annual cleaning and inspections in order to maintain our community. We will work at minimizing inconveniences for you.

SUMMER RESIDENTS: please help conserve energy this summer by keeping windows and patio doors closed when using your A/C. Turn off all lights, computers and televisions when you leave for the day. Report leaking faucets and showerheads. Thank you for helping to conserve our natural resources!

Please contact the Housing Office if you have any questions.

GRADUATING IN JUNE?
Congratulations! There is so much to do before the quarter ends so don’t forget to plan ahead for your check-out. If your graduation ceremony takes place on Saturday or Sunday, you may request to stay past the check-out deadline of Saturday, June 14, 2014 (2pm). The Stayover Request Form is available online now through May 23, 2014. Submit your request early – you must be approved to stay beyond the check-out date and time. Plan early, pack early! Keep in mind that an approved extension is only through Sunday, June 15, 2014, by 10pm. Contact the Housing Office with any questions.

HOUSING OFFICE CLOSED
The Housing Service Office, Mailroom, Dining Room, CIC and campus will be closed on Monday, May 26, 2014 in observance of Memorial Day.  If you have an emergency, you can reach the RA on duty at 323-343-4807.

MOVE OUT DATE IS SATURDAY, JUNE 14, 2014
Residents’ housing license agreements end as of 2:00 PM on Saturday, June 14, 2014.  Therefore all residents must have removed all their belongings, cleaned the common areas and bedrooms and returned their keys BEFORE 2:00 PM on Saturday, June 14, 2014.  More information is available on the Move-out Information webpage: http://web.calstatela.edu/univ/housing/MO.php.

GOING HOME FOR THE MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND
Take advantage of the long weekend to take home items you will not need over the next couple of weeks. Avoid the stressful and time consuming process of packing all your belongings during finals week.  Don’t forget to talk to your housemates about cleaning your apartment on a specific day or designating areas for each person to clean.  All residents will be held financially responsible for charges assessed for lack of cleaning, remaining trash and items.

AVOID ANY LAPSES IN IMPORTANT SERVICES
Contact major service providers NOW! It can take up to six weeks for cell phone companies, credit card companies, employers, banks and other institutions to process requests to change your mailing address.  Take a few minutes to contact any service providers to update your mailing address.  You may submit a Mail Forwarding Request form to Housing Services to have your mail forwarded for 4 weeks, allowing time for these companies to update their records with your new address. Please DO NOT submit a Change of Address form to the Post Office.

SAVE YOUR ROOM FOR NEXT YEAR
As a current resident you have the opportunity to re-contract and save your room for next year before prospective students are assigned.  Not sure of your plans? We encourage all students to reserve their space for next year even if you are not sure of your plans.  It is better that you reserve your space now and cancel before August than to contract later and be added to the waiting list.

SAVE YOUR SPACE FOR 2014-2015! ROOM SELECTION IS COMING!

It’s time to think about your plans for next year! Why? Because current residents have priority to lock in their space before assigning new First-time and Transfer students. New students will begin applying in March 2014.

This is your chance to select and save a space for Summer 2014 and/or Fall 2014. All you need to do is complete a Student Housing License Agreement for 2014-2015 (available in March) and pay an initial fee. We will then provide you an appointment for selecting your space in late Winter or early Spring Quarter. Roommate requests can be accommodated, so make sure your friends also complete their applications.

More information will follow and two information sessions are scheduled for February. Be sure to read your weekly email communications from Housing and stay informed!

JANUARY 31, 2014 PAYMENT DUE

All payments are due on January 31, 2014, for students on Financial Aid and on the Installment Plan.

*For all unpaid balances, late fees will be assessed on February 6, 2014.

DON’T JEOPARDIZE YOUR HOUSING!!! PAY OFF YOUR OUTSTANDING BALANCE FROM FALL 2013!!!
Students that have an outstanding balance for the Fall 2013 quarter, will not be able to continue through Winter 2014 quarter and may be asked to move out with a 3 day notice. Don’t jeopardize your Housing!

LEAVING FOR THE WINTER BREAK?
Please help conserve energy and keep your apartment safe by closing and locking all doors and windows – be certain to check your patio door as well. Please turn off lights and air conditioning/heating before you leave. Be sure to clean out your refrigerator of all perishables to avoid unpleasant mystery foods upon your return! Don’t come back to creepy critters in your apartment –take out your trash, wash dishes, vacuum or sweep any food particles off of floors.

GOING HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS?
With campus being closed for holidays, please be mindful of limited public/individual presence on campus and in Housing. Please keep in the mind the following safety tips:
10 Safety Tips for Living in Housing
1. Make sure the door to your apartment is locked at all times. Leaving the bolt in the unlocked position is unsafe and also a violation of housing policy.
2. Keep your windows locked. Don't be so focused on locking your door that you forget to check the windows, too.
3. Don't let anyone into your apartment that you don't know. If that person is there to visit a roommate then the roommate can let them in.
4. Be careful with your keys. Also, if you lose them, don't depend on your roommate to keep letting you in. Notify housing so you can get a new set, you have no idea who could have your old one.
5. Get a locking device for your laptop. This may be a physical lock or some kind of electronic tracking or locking device.
6. Put emergency numbers in your cell phone. If your wallet is stolen, will you know what phone number to call to cancel your credit cards? Put important phone numbers in your cell so that you can call the moment you notice something is missing.
7. Be smart with your car. Don’t leave it unlocked. Check on it every so often if you don’t use it that often. Only unlock it when you are next to it not as you are walking towards it.
8. Use the campus escort service at night or travel with a friend. Friends are great and the campus escort service is very friendly. Call 323-343-3700.
9. Make sure someone knows where you are at all times. Heading to a club downtown? Going out on a date? There's no need to spill all the intimate details, but do let someone (a friend, a roommate, etc.) know where you're going and what time you expect to get back.
10. Know the phone number for Campus Police. You never know: you may need it for yourself or for something you see from far away. Calling 911 on campus will connect you with California Highway Patrol. Call Campus Police at 323-343-3700 the response time will be much faster.

NEW RESIDENTS MOVE IN (SUNDAY, JANUARY 5, 2014)
If there is an empty space in your apartment, you may have a new housemate moving in for the Winter Quarter. Please do not spread out and keep bedroom and closet areas cleared for a new resident.

Please follow posted speed limit for pedestrian safety.

PHASE I – CONTINUATION OF WALKWAY REPAIRS - DECEMBER 16-20, 2013
The East and West side of Phase I requires additional sidewalk repairs. This will involve removal and replacement of small sections of concrete and machine grinding.

We appreciate your patience as we continue to make improvements around our community.

GOING HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS ?
With campus being closed for holidays, please be mindful of limited public/individual presence on campus and in Housing. Please keep in the mind the following safety tips:

10 Safety Tips for Living in Housing
1. Make sure the door to your apartment is locked at all times. Leaving the bolt in the unlocked position is unsafe and also a violation of housing policy.
2. Keep your windows locked. Don't be so focused on locking your door that you forget to check the windows, too.
3. Don't let anyone into your apartment that you don't know. If that person is there to visit a roommate then the roommate can let them in.
4. Be careful with your keys. Also, if you lose them, don't depend on your roommate to keep letting you in. Notify housing so you can get a new set, you have no idea who could have your old one.
5. Get a locking device for your laptop. This may be a physical lock or some kind of electronic tracking or locking device.
6. Put emergency numbers in your cell phone. If your wallet is stolen, will you know what phone number to call to cancel your credit cards? Put important phone numbers in your cell so that you can call the moment you notice something is missing.
7. Be smart with your car. Don’t leave it unlocked. Check on it every so often if you don’t use it that often. Only unlock it when you are next to it not as you are walking towards it.
8. Use the campus escort service at night or travel with a friend. Friends are great and the campus escort service is very friendly.  Call 323-343-3700.
9. Make sure someone knows where you are at all times. Heading to a club downtown? Going out on a date? There's no need to spill all the intimate details, but do let someone (a friend, a roommate, etc.) know where you're going and what time you expect to get back.
10. Know the phone number for Campus Police. You never know: you may need it for yourself or for something you see from far away. Calling 911 on campus will connect you with California Highway Patrol.  Call Campus Police at 323-343-3700 the response time will be much faster.

THANKSGIVING DINNER
Please join us for a delicious turkey dinner, yummy dessert and night of games and football. 
Thursday, November 28
5:00 pm, Phase II Lounge

DINING CONSTRUCTION UPDATE
Construction work continues at the moderate noise level. In order to remain on schedule for completion, some construction work will begin earlier in the morning  with minimal noise to residents. Weekend work will continue over the next several weeks, from 9am-4pm, with moderate noise projects.

We appreciate your patience and please let the Housing Office know if you have any questions or concerns.

PHASE II WATER UPDATES
Thank you to ALL the residents of Phase II for your patience. Today’s water outage was unexpected. Please let the Housing Office know if you have any further questions or concerns.

DON’T JEOPARDIZE YOUR HOUSING - OUTSTANDING BALANCES / REGISTRATION HOLDS
Students that have an outstanding balance for the Fall 2013 quarter, will not be able to continue through Winter 2014 quarter and may be asked to move out with a 3 day notice. Don’t jeopardize your Housing! Please review your GET account for outstanding balances and registration holds.  It can take up to a day for any registration holds to be removed.  Students with outstanding balances will receive a registration hold and failure to make payments may result in jeopardy of your Housing.  Not sure, stop by the Housing Office for assistance.

We have updated the work order system on the Housing Portal. The changes include new categories and maintenance items are listed by room location. For example, you may now locate window blinds under “Bedroom,” “Living Room” and “Dining Room.” These changes will help Housing Services address issues more directly and give you, the resident, specific items to choose from.  You still have the flexibility to add an item that may not be listed – under each room there is a “Miscellaneous” category. If you choose that category, you may then provide your own details in the comment box. We hope you find the changes helpful and easier to use!

CANCELLING YOUR LICENSE AGREEMENT
WHAT’S IN YOUR STUDENT HOUSING LICENSE AGREEMENT AND STUDENT GUIDE?
Basically it is a contract between you and the University (and Housing Services) and it outlines your responsibilities as a licensee and community member. It has all of the details about the term of your license agreement (one year), what is included as part of your agreement to live here, payment agreement and obligations, how you may cancel your agreement, the services available to you, expectations for conduct, policies regarding maintenance of premises, smoking, drugs and alcohol and other restrictions, appropriate internet use and other community expectations.

Remember, reading and agreeing to the provisions in the online Housing Services License Agreement was part of the process to receive housing.

Relay For Life is a 24-hour team event to fight cancer.  It raises awareness of cancer in the community and raises money to support the programs and services of the American Cancer Society.

How it works:  A team captain gets together a team of 10-20 of his or her closes friends, co-workers, family members, etc. and forms a team.  The team members go out and collect contributions prior to the event.  Relay for Life is a celebration party at the end of the fundraising.

Relay Day:  Participants grab their tents and lawn chairs and head to their assigned campsite.  It’s like a community campout.  People pitch their tents in the stadium and take turns walking around the track.  One person from each team must be on the track at all times.  The day consists of 24 hours of food and entertainment for all participants, from live bands to nighttime movies.  In the evening there is a Luminaria (candle lighting) Ceremony to honor cancer survivors and remember those who passed away from cancer.

MOVING OUT
Summer residents who have NOT paid their Fall Housing must move out before 2:00 pm on Saturday, September 7, 2013.  You can check-out at the Housing Services Office from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.

AVOID CLEANING CHARGES
Before returning keys for move-out, there are a few things that need to be done.

CONFIRM YOUR FALL SPACE & TRANSFER DATE
You need to confirm where you are living for the Fall through Spring, if you haven’t already. Stop by the Housing Office to confirm if you have a Summer only contract or an Annual contract. If you have an Annual contract and have decided not to live on-campus, you must submit a cancellation request before August 26, 2013.

SUMMER 2013 RENT BALANCES
If you have not paid your Summer 2013 quarter rent, HOLDS will be placed on your account that will prevent you from registering for Fall 2013. If you plan on continuing through the Academic Year, your space will be jeopardized and could be cancelled. Three day notices will be given out shortly. With notices given, you will either have to pay the outstanding Housing balance in full or move out – NO EXCEPTIONS!

FALL PAYMENT
All students should have made their payment for their Fall Housing on or before August 16, 2013. Failure to have done so will jeopardize your Fall-Spring Assignment and will be required to move out before 2pm on September 7, 2013. Stop by our office if you have any questions about your account.
Financial Aid recipients: If you are receiving aid, print your Financial Aid Award Summary from GET and turn it into the Housing Services office if you haven’t already. We will defer your payment until your aid is released in September. Please keep in mind that you are responsible to pay the price difference from what Financial Aid does not cover by October 4, 2013.

BE PROACTIVE AND START PREPARING, WITH THE FOLLOWING:
1. Make the necessary arrangements with friends and family for assistance on move-out/transfer day. Remember they may need time to request time off from work.
2. Schedule a time for you and your housemates to clean. You will be charged if you leave items behind (trash, food, etc.) and if the apartment is not left in the clean condition you moved into. It should be clean and ready for another person to move in.
3. Residents staying in the same space for Fall 2013-14, must also clean the common areas in preparation of new residents moving in
4. Change your address with Vendors (Banks, Telephone Co., Magazines, etc.). It takes 4-6 weeks for institutions to change your address in their system. If you complete a Change of Address form, Housing will forward your mail for 4weeks only.

If you will transfer to a different apartment for the summer, you need to be packed and ready to move on Wednesday, June 19th from 10 am to 4 pm.  You will need to:
1. Schedule an appointment for an exit ACR of your old apartment.
2. Sign for new keys (staff will also do your incoming ACR to your new apartment).
3. Complete your move (clean your apt, remove all belongings & food items)
4. Return keys to Housing Office - If you did not schedule an appointment for an exit ACR, return your keys using an Express Check-out Key Envelope. 

Due to the short period of time between move-out day and transfer day, your new apartment may require cleaning.  Please submit a Work Order and a cleaning will be scheduled for you.

CARTS AND FLAT BEDS AVAILABLE FOR MOVE-OUT AND RELOCATING TO SUMMER APARTMENTS
The carts and flat beds (rolling bins) will be available between June 14th and June 20th.  Residents can borrow them to move out and those staying for the Summer, can use them to relocate into their Summer apartments. Carts will be available for checking-out in the Housing Services Office in Phase II.

DONATION BOXES
Donate your unwanted shoes and clothes that are in good condition.  Several donation bins will be available in Phase I and Phase II between June 5th and June 26th.

CLEANING TIPS TO AVOID BEING CHARGED
1. Sinks and showers/tubs: Use a scrubbing sponge and an all-purpose cleaner.  Go with a more powerful bleach-based product.  You want to cut through dirt and oil quickly.  Pay special attention to sink rims as it can be overlooked.  Scrub until you don’t see gray gunk anymore. 
2. Ovens: Spray any caked-on spills with an oven cleaner, let it sit for a few minutes, then wipe away.  Clean the oven top with your all-purpose cleaner.  Using wipes is another handy product in this area.
3. Refrigerators: When cleaning the refrigerator, make sure all items are removed.  If it is not empty, all residents will be charged for cleaning.  After removing all items, be sure to give the inside a good scrub down.
4. Toilets: Use a toilet bowl cleaner and follow the directions that are given on the back side of the product.
5. Walls and getting rid of smudges and nicks: After you’ve moved out all of your stuff, your apartment walls will likely look dirty.  Using a sponge and an all-purpose cleaner to wipe down the walls should help with the scuff marks. 
6. Floors: Vacuum the entire floor of the apartment and sweep the non-carpeted areas.  Remember that vacuums are available to borrow at the CIC.  Use a mop, or wipes, to get any last remaining dust or other build-up on floors.
7. Work Orders: Report any maintenance, repairs, leaks or other problems by filling out the online Work Order (https://housing.calstatela.edu)

*Any of the cleaning products that are needed to clean-out your apartment can be purchased at a local stores or markets (i.e. CVS, Rite-Aid, Albertsons, Ralph’s, Target, etc.)
