Notes

HFS passes along all charges associated with damage caused by a student regardless of intent. The labor rates set by the University are valid from July 1 to June 30 each fiscal year and can be found here. Labor rates do not include materials. Rates vary based on the skilled trade required to complete the specific job. When considering replacement versus repair, the most economical option will be selected.  

You may also be charged for occupying two spaces, and for boxing and storage.
