Settling Into Your New Residence
Helpful Hints

· Looking for your in-room phone number?  Dial 7-call on your in-room phone.

· We’ve tried hard to get your room ready for you.  If you need a repair, please let us know by completing an on-line fix-it request (http://fixit.stanford.edu)

Recycling containers for cardboard, mixed paper, cans, bottles, and plastics are located near the dumpsters at each residence

Treat the walls gently!

Please use small push pins when decorating your walls; nails, screws and double-backed tape damage them. We advise against message boards, which can be a surprising source of wall and door damage. Tape used to affix the boards mars the walls and leaves a dark residue that may result in a charge to repaint the wall.

When you decorate

For ideas on ways you can safely modify your campus space, see “Personalizing your campus home”on the Student Housing website .

Room Condition Forms

Please complete your room/apartment condition form!  We know you are anxious to get settle in, but before you do, please take a moment to complete an on-line room condition form.  This form gives you the opportunity to declare the condition of your room and its contents when you move-in and help to avoid being charged for pre-existing conditions when  you move out.  Be sure to provide details about the damage and location (e.g.,  nail hole in right wall). 

Lockouts

If you’re locked out, come to the Crothers Housing Front Desk (Robinson residents go to the Lagunita Housing Front Desk) during normal business hours or see your Summer Conference Assistant (SCA) after hours. If you lose your key and your room needs to be rekeyed, the charge is $106 for Robinson, Crothers, Branner and Manzanita. The charge for Mirrielees is $211-$247, depending on the  number of bedrooms in your apartment.

After-hours lockout service is also available through the Housing  Access Response Team (H.A.R.T.) by contacting 650-725-1602. There is a $75 fee for lockouts performed by HART.

 

Smoke Free Environments
All University residences are smoke-free environments. Smoking is not  permitted in the building. Outdoor smoking areas must be at least 30 feet away from doorways, open windows, covered walkways, and ventilation systems to prevent smoke from entering enclosed buildings. Violations of this policy are reported to the Assistant Dean of Summer Session.

 

Staying Safe
Unfortunately, thefts do occur on campus, and not everyone has your best interest in mind. Please:

· Lock your room door when not at home or asleep.

· Don’t prop open building entry doors.

· Question strangers you see around your residence. If they don’t belong, ask them to leave or contact the police (9-911 from a campus phone or 911 from a cell phone)

· Notify your Front Desk if you see solicitors in or near your residence.

· Let us know if a door doesn’t lock properly or if an exterior light is burnt out.  (Maintenance Hotline:  650 725-1602)

These are a few simple steps to help ensure your safety, the safety of fellow residents, and of everyone’s property!

Card Access Information

Your Stanford ID card will give you access to the residences to which you have been assigned or which have shared spaces with your residence. Treat your SU-ID card like a key, if you lose or misplace it, report it immediately to the SU-ID Card Office, located in the Student Services Center  (http://studentservicescenter.stanford.edu), second floor, Tresidder Memorial Union.

Tips for using the card access system at your residence:

· Use a card holder rather than punching a hole in your for a key chain or lanyard.   Punching a hole in the card damages the wires that card access system uses to “read” your card.

· If  your card is not working at your residence, contact your  Housing Front Desk Coordinator  (see top of page for contact information)

If you need a new card, you can get one at the Card Office, located in the Student Services Center, second floor, Tresidder Memorial Union.
