Students are expected to act responsibly while attending Hampshire College. Deliberate destruction of college property will not be tolerated. If a room or common area incurs damage during the academic year, the resident of the room and all residents of the common area will be charged for the damage.
Under no circumstances are students permitted to paint their rooms or common areas. Failure to abide by this rule will result in charges for paint and labor to restore the room or common area to its original condition.
Students are required to sign a room and common area contract as they move in. These contracts should accurately reflect the conditions and furnishings of the area. All student rooms have a full complement of furniture and will be charged for any missing furniture when they vacate. Students will be held accountable for any damage to their rooms, common areas or furniture.
