Damage Charges

You are responsible for damages you cause, whether or not your behavior was intentional. If your negligence results in damage to the property of others or to the University, you may be held liable for all resulting damages. The University and its insurer will pursue recovery against you and/or your insurer to the full extent of the damages.

Damage charges will be billed to your Housing account. An invoice, along with supporting documentation, will be sent to your wisc.edu email address or to your mailing address if you are no longer a student at the University of Wisconsin—Madison. If you have questions about the validity of a damage charge, you should contact the appeal person noted on the bill.

The Division reserves the right to assess common area damage among residents of the house.
