Please See Below for All Housing Policies:
Trinity Washington University, hereby referred to as University, grants to Licensee a license to use the facilities under the terms and conditions of the Agreement. The parties mutually agree that nothing herein shall create a tenancy, that the license does not constitute a lease, that Landlord-Tenant laws will not apply, and that it does not create or transfer interest or a lien on real estate. Licensee waives any right to remain in the assigned space beyond the end of the license period or after termination for any reason.
Conference guests are prohibited from using the room for anything other than residential purposes and may not allow other persons to occupy said room or conduct any activity without the prior written consent of the University.
During timeframes in which dormitories are occupied by University residents (August – May), conference guests are prohibited from utilizing any facilities and/or entryways located within resident wings. Such locations include, but are not limited to, the main hallway, lounge, communal restrooms, and laundry facilities. Conference guests must use the rear entrance of Kerby Hall when entering and exiting the building.
Keys and Building Access
Conference guests are issued a key that permits access to their assigned room and building. Keys are given for a resident’s personal use and are not transferable. Conference guests are advised to always lock their doors at all times. For the safety and security of all Conference guests, students should not hold or prop any door open to allow non-Conference guests to enter.
Conference guests who lose or temporarily misplace their keys should immediately report the loss to the Conference Services at 202-884-9136 or the Department of Public Safety at 202-884-9111. If the originally issued key(s) is/are not located the key(s) will be considered permanently lost and a lock change will be authorized. After 3 consecutive lockouts, the resident will be charged $25 per lockout. There is a $50 fee for a lock change on a single room.
Appliances in Rooms
Depending on the type of housing accommodation, miniature microwaves and refrigerators may be provided. In all residential rooms personal appliances are not permitted.
Cleanliness, Damage Charges and Room Condition
Conference guests should be concerned with the safety and handling of University property, in individual rooms, shared spaces and common areas, and should do their best to ensure University property is not damaged or stolen and residential communities maintain clean, safe and sanitary conditions. Conference guests are expected to keep their assigned space reasonably neat and clean at all times and to correct issues pointed out by a University representative.
Conference guests are only permitted to use washers and dryers in designated laundry facilities.

Each room is issued specific furniture items, including a bed, dresser, desk and desk chair, closet or wardrobe; some rooms may have additional furniture.
University issued furniture that is assigned to a resident’s room must remain in the room, regardless of other furniture a resident may add to the room. Broken or damaged furniture should be reported to Conferences Services at 202-884-9136 and should remain in the room until a staff member has either repaired or replaced the item.
All hallways must remain clear of all personal belongings and furniture. Personal items, including bikes, sports equipment, and other items may not be left in hallways, stairwells, and/or common areas.
