APARTMENT GROUNDS, MAINTENANCE, AND SAFETY AIR CONDITIONING UNITS Resident(s) living in university-owned apartments may purchase a portable free-standing air conditioning unit for their apartment, provided the unit meets the specifications required by the university and is approved by Housing and Residence Life. Housing and Residence Life has a list of those specifications for your review. University maintenance staff must professionally install all air-conditioning units and a $100 installation fee will be assessed to the student’s account. There is also a $60 flat rate charged per year for utilities (no partial years). Only one air conditioning unit is allowed in each apartment and no air conditioning units can be installed in bedroom windows. If a resident moves to a different apartment, an additional installation fee will be imposed when the student requests to move the air conditioner. All students in the apartment must complete an air conditioning request form with Housing and Residence Life before being approved. The installation and utility fees will be charged to the student’s account. Housing and Residence Life reserves the right to deny installation of units that are considered unsafe. Residents should not purchase units that do not meet the required specifications. Call Housing and Residence Life at 509- 963-1831 to make an appointment for installation. ASBESTOS INFORMATION Textured ceilings contain a small amount of asbestos material. The ceiling materials have been thoroughly and effectively encapsulated by application of paint. If it is disturbed (scratched or gouged) the fibers can be released and may become hazardous. It is important that you do not damage or disturb the ceiling. Failure to adhere to this policy could result in lease termination.

During severe cold weather (below five degrees) allow the cold-water faucet to drip slightly throughout the day and night. If you plan to be gone during the winter months, leave your heat at a comfortable setting (65 to 70 degrees) and leave the cupboard doors, beneath the kitchen and bathroom sinks, open to allow sufficient warm-air circulation. The cost to repair frozen pipes is the resident’s responsibility.
