    • Roosevelt University does not provide parking.  Unattended cars will be ticketed and/or towed at owner’s expense. Roosevelt University and the Office of Residence Life are not responsible for any parking fees or fines incurred. We do suggest finding a parking lot or garage in the area, where families/friends providing rides to residents can park.  Visit our Facebook page for parking resources and smart phone apps to help locate parking options and to see the best prices available.

Failure to Complete Check-Out Instructions:  Charges

There are charges associated with failure to complete check-out procedures. If you do not contact the RAs upon departure and complete the check-out instructions, you will receive a $150 improper check-out charge.  If you do not turn in your room key to Residence Life staff, you will be assessed a charge of $50 to your student account.

Damage Billing

If there is any damage in your room, you will be held financially responsible for the repair cost assessed by the Office of Residence Life.  You will be emailed with a notice of charges, if damage or cleaning charges are assessed.  This email will be sent to your     student account over the summer.
