COVID-19 Residence Life Commitment
This COVID-19 Residence Life Commitment (the Commitment) is an addendum to the Housing Agreement 2021–22 (“Housing Agreement”), which terms remain in effect except to the extent those terms are expressly modified by this Commitment. The student indicates his/her acceptance of the terms of this Commitment via the student’s signature on the Housing Agreement and the form linked below. No term or condition of this Commitment or the Housing Agreement can be waived without the written agreement of Lees-McRae College and the student, and no oral statement made by Lees-McRae College or its agents or employees is considered a waiver of any term or condition of those agreements.

Alcohol is not allowed in any residence hall room unless all individuals are of the legal drinking age of 21 and the room has been registered with the Assistant Dean of Students. Only the Houses, Villages, and Apartments residences may be registered to have alcohol.

Common Rooms
Students share responsibility for the common areas in their residence halls, including hallways, lounges, bathrooms, breezeways, kitchens, and any other location shared by multiple students. If items in the common rooms are damaged or stolen and the individual(s) responsible are not identified, the replacement cost will be divided among all residents of the room, floor, or building.

Laundry Facilities
Students are able to do laundry in all locations via an application on their phone called "CSCPay Mobile." For added convenience, card readers are also provided on all machines.

Lock Changes
If a room key is lost, the lock will be changed at the replacement cost of $100, which will be billed to the student's account. If a student fails to return his/her room key upon leaving the college, they will be charged this fee as well. Keys are not allowed to be duplicated by anyone other than the college locksmith.

Room Condition Reports
As students move into and out of their residential spaces, they are required to complete a Room Condition Report (RCR) to assess the condition of their bedroom and other commons spaces. Students who do not submit a RCR via the online form within 72 hours of their move-in and move-out waive rights to appeals for any damage billing at the conclusion of the academic year. Complete the Room Condition Report here.

Maintenance Requests
If a student needs to make a maintenance request for a damaged or non-working item in their room, they may report the problem to the Residence Life Staff or submit a maintenance request here.

Quiet Hours
Students have the right to study and sleep in their housing assignments without disruption. Quiet hours are in effect for all campus housing from 8 p.m. until 8 a.m. Sunday through Thursday nights, and from 1 a.m. until 1 p.m. Friday and Saturday nights. Quiet hours will be in effect 24 hours a day during final exams beginning on the last day of classes for the semester. 

If a student stops attending classes, the student will be withdrawn from the college and he/she must move out of campus housing immediately. Please refer to the Academic Catalog for further information regarding withdrawals.
