All apartments on campus will be inspected on a scheduled basis over the course of the year. Revised Housing Inspection Schedule Dec 2020
All kitchens, bedrooms, bathrooms and common areas will be inspected.
It will also be checked to see if there has been any malicious damage or serious issues.
Please ensure that your apartment is clean and tidy for the inspector.
Please check the schedule below for the dates you can expect your apartment to be inspected.
Inspections take place between 9.00-17.00 on the days listed on the schedule.
Cleaning will be judged on the following scale:
0 = spotless,
1 = OK but a light clean is needed,
2 = not clean and unsatisfactory,
3 = unacceptable and very dirty.
Getting a score of 2 or 3 qualifies as a fail.
Apartments or rooms that fail inspections will be re-inspected. If you fail an inspection, you will be emailed with a date for re-inspection.
Please note that all residents in an apartment are equally responsible for ensuring the communal area pass inspection. Each resident is responsible for ensuring their bedroom (and ensuite bathroom as applicable) pass inspection.
If the failure is for a communal area where all residents are responsible e,g, the kitchen, all residents in an apartment will be emailed about a re-inspection date. Re-inspections notices for bedrooms will go to the resident responsible for that room.
Failure of re-inspection is considered a breach of the licence to reside.
Any cleaning that has to be arranged to return an apartment back to a satisfactory condition will be charged to all residents in an apartment.
Residents will incur housekeeping charges if they do not leave their apartments in a satisfactory condition at the end of the year.
