Rules & Expectations

Actions of Dependents and Guests

Leaseholders are responsible for actions and conduct of anyone who resides with them or is a guest in their apartment. You may have visitors for 30 days in a year. Do not give keys to visitors who should not have access to your apartment or the laundry areas or basements.

Laundry Room Etiquette

The cost of laundry facilities is included in your monthly rent and therefore is only to be used by residents. Laundry use is permitted from 8:00 a.m. - 10:00 p.m. In some buildings, neighbors get together to work out mutually agreeable laundry times, or post a sign-up schedule. In other buildings, the machines are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Whatever the tradition is in your building, University Apartments staff (including Resident Managers) do not monitor or enforce laundry schedules. We encourage you to talk to your neighbors when there is a problem. If you have a concern about the use of your laundry room, contact your Resident Manager


One assigned parking stall is included with Eagle Heights and University Houses apartments. Harvey Street resident parking is available for a monthly fee on a first come, first served basis. Additional parking stalls may be available for a monthly fee. Visitors must park in designated visitor parking stalls. Long term (more than 48 hours) or regular visitors must have their vehicle registered with the University Apartment office.


Behavior that constitutes harassment is prohibited. Harassment is defined as verbal threats, intimidation, or conduct which tend to cause or incite a breach of the peace; or are severe or pervasive enough to substantially interfere with a reasonable resident's educational performance.

Quiet Hours

Residents are expected to observe general quiet hours between 10:00 pm - 8:00 am. If you are up late, please do not use noisy appliances (garbage disposals, vacuum cleaners, or sewing machines) when others are likely sleeping. Also, lower the volume on TVs and stereos. Quiet hours also apply to use of the laundry facilities. Time your use of washers and dryers to end by 10:00 pm. To learn more about normal noise, noise in hallways, and parties visit our Resident Manager page.


Please view our entire Storage Policy.


All University Houses, Harvey Street Apartments, and the UA Community Center are smoke-free. Smoking is only permitted inside smoking a few designated smoking apartments (which are located in Eagle Heights). Smoking is not allowed in ANY public area of any apartment building. Smoking must be done at least 25 feet away from all buildings. Do not throw cigarette butts on the ground.

Running On-site Business

You may charge a fee for providing child care or word processing services within your apartment. The operation of all other organized business on University premises is not allowed.
