Condition of Your Space

Remember you can submit maintenance requests by filling out the online form at any time or by calling 864-656-5450 between 7:30 a.m. and midnight.

A normal amount of wear and tear to furniture, walls, carpets, etc. is expected after living in a particular space during the academic year. Residents will not be responsible for wear and tear that has occurred through normal everyday use of their space.

We encourage all residents to take care of their space. Residents who are found to have intentionally damaged or removed something from their space may be charged and/or referred to the Office of Community and Ethical Standards for damage to property. Please contact a Residential Living staff member to complete the Responsibility for Damage form; residents who take responsibility for damages to their space will have the cost of repair charged to their Student Account.
