UPDATE to Abandoned Personal Property Procedure

Found on page 14 and updated on Monday, November 20, 2023.

Students are responsible for the removal of all personal belongings when they check-out of their room. University Housing reserves the right, without assuming any liability, to dispose of all personal property considered to be abandoned; including unclaimed deliveries addressed to a particular student. Students have 30 days to claim their non-perishable abandoned property. Abandoned property will be boxed up and stored as needed. The student who has abandoned the property will be notified via their Stout e-mail account and via letter to their home address of the date by which their items will be disposed of accordingly. Perishable abandoned property will be disposed of without notice after being left unclaimed for 24 hours.
