As stated in the Housing Agreement, a Resident may not engage a locksmith service to open or change her locks.
Lost keys must be reported to Campus Housing immediately. If a Resident loses her keys, the student will incur a $65 charge that will be added to her student account.
In order to change your meal plan, residents must contact Catherine Hopkins, Director of Campus Housing at firstname.lastname@example.org by September 4, 2013.
Note: First year students must remain on the 19 meal plan in the fall semester.

There are 24 hour courtesy hours in effect in the Residence Halls. Additionally, quiet hours are enforced daily from 10:00 pm – 10:00 am. During finals week, quiet hours are maintained 24 hours a day. Specific dates will be communicated to Residents by Campus Housing Staff.
Residents are prohibited from switching rooms with one another or move from room to room without permission from the Office of Campus Housing.
If you are having roommate concerns, see your Resident Coordinator. Getting acquainted to someone you don’t know is an achievable challenge if both residents are willing, flexible and ready to compromise. A Roommate Agreement and a committment to keep the lines of communication open will help to mitigate concerns.
Students are responsible for the conduct of their guests and students guests must be escorted at all times while on Trinity property.
All guests must be registered with the Department of Public Safety. In order to register, the guest must have a valid Trinity ID, state ID, passport or valid/up to date College/University ID. All guests must be age 18 or older.
