License Agreement 2013-2014
Undergraduate/Graduate/Law Students

 

Introduction

Northeastern University's Housing & Residential Life system includes any living accommodations owned or leased by the school which provides housing each term to eligible students. All students must conduct themselves in a manner consistent with the University's expectations, as stated in A Guide to Residence Hall Living, the Student Handbook and the Residence Hall and Dining License Agreement and any and all other applicable school policies, procedures, supplemental agreements, rules and regulations.
Please note that all changes from the 2012-2013 License Agreement have been highlighted.

 

Acceptance of the License Agreement

In order to live in University housing, a student must read and agree to the terms of the 2013-2014 Residence Hall and Dining License agreement at the time he/she applies for housing. By signing the License Agreement on-line and/or also by accepting keys or an encoded keycard to your room/apartment, the student has officially acknowledged and accepted the terms and conditions of this agreement. However, acceptance of the terms of this agreement does not guarantee the student a space in Northeastern University housing. Failure to sign the License Agreement may result in loss of housing privileges. The student agrees to live in University housing under any and all rules and regulations established by Housing & Residential Life and Northeastern University.

Residents will be subject to license revocation and/or disciplinary action for violations of any of the regulations or policies included in this License Agreement, or published in A Guide to Residence Hall Living, or the Student Handbook. Residents must abide by all disciplinary proceedings, including summonses to conferences or student-conduct hearings. Students are also obliged to give truthful testimony. Delivery of written notices will be considered sufficient if given to students personally, e-mailed, mailed to the student's home address, or put in the student's on-campus mailbox.

If Northeastern University is required to obtain legal services due to a student's violation of this license, or policies contained in either A Guide to Residence Hall Living, or the Student Handbook, then that student must pay to the University: (1) attorney's fees, and (2) any other related cost, whether or not formal legal action is taken against the student.

*Specific information and instructions for move-ins (including dates and times) will be mailed to students and families each term. All dates are subject to change.

** It is recommended that students on co-op with a non-continuous contract should start their off-campus leases on August 1st.

Summer II officially ends on August 19th.  If you will be living on campus for the Fall Semester, you must remain in your Summer II room until your Fall space is available.  You cannot leave your belongings in your room and leave for the intersession.   You are required to move to your fall space before leaving campus for the break. 

If you are NOT remaining on campus for the Fall, you will be required to move out (same as last day of finals).  Please be aware that housing until September 1 is not available, therefore, you are encouraged to sign leases that begin on August 1.  If you move out of Summer II housing on August 1, you will be prorated for the weeks you do not live on campus.

Hall and Room Assignments

Room assignments for Freshmen and Transfer students are made based on the receipt date of the Enrollment Deposit (freshmen) or Housing Deposit (transfer students) and application (with any roommate preferences). Room assignments for Upperclass students are based on receipt of the Housing Application, eligibility as determined by the Upperclass housing process, a signed License Agreement, and a Housing Deposit. Room assignments for Graduate and Law students are based on receipt of Housing Application, eligibility as determined by the Graduate and Law Student housing process, a signed License Agreement, and a Housing Deposit. Students of the opposite sex may not be assigned to the same residence hall room or apartment unless they are living in a Gender Neutral floor and/or apartment.

Every effort is made to honor a student's preference for roommate, room type, and facility. However, Northeastern University does not guarantee the type or location of residence and/or roommate requests.

The University reserves the right to change the student's room assignment at any time. Also, if a student does not check into his/her reserved housing space it will be forfeited twenty-four (24) hours after the official move-in period, unless written notice from the student is provided to Housing & Residential Life before that time.

The University will attempt to accommodate students desiring a room change during the designated room change period each term or in an emergency. To explore room change options the student must first make an appointment with their Residence Director to obtain a room change referral form. Housing & Residential Life reserves the right to disband any residential unit, up to and including a floor, hall, or room, should the Department deem such action necessary for safety, health, or quality of life purposes. In the event that a new roommate is assigned to your room or apartment, you are required to ensure that your personal belongings only occupy space to which you are entitled (one bed, closet, dresser, portion of common areas, etc.). Students who do not adhere to this policy may be referred to the Office of Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution for disciplinary action which could include loss of housing privileges.

Disclosure of Address and Telephone Number

In letters notifying students of their room assignment, Housing & Residential Life may provide home address, telephone numbers, and/or email addresses for each roommate in a given housing unit. Students find it beneficial to contact each other in advance to determine what each will bring to campus.

Upon completion of the Housing Application, residents may request that Housing & Residential Life not disclose either their home address and phone number, or their on-campus address.

Disclosure of Student Information

By signing this agreement, students consent to and authorize Residential Life to release any information provided by or about the student, including but not limited to information related to the student's health, safety and/or well-being and emergency contact information to University officials as the University deems appropriate and/or necessary. By signing this agreement, students also consent to and authorize the release of any such information from University officials to Housing & Residential Life. University officials/offices to which such information may be released or from which such information may be received include, but are not limited to, Public Safety, Disability Resource Center, University Counseling and Health Services, Athletics, and Facilities Services.

 

Closed Periods: Intersession Between Terms

  • I. Freshman and Transfer Students
    University residence halls typically close and on the last day of Final Exams at 7:00 PM. Residence halls must be vacated at this time. Between the Fall to Spring terms, if a student is remaining in housing, they do not need to remove all of their belongings, however it is suggested that valuables be removed during this time. Transfer students living in an open building with continuing License Agreements in the same room in an open building may stay in their room during the Intersession Period, if their building is open.

The following buildings will usually close each Intersession period: Stetson East, Stetson West, Speare, Kennedy, Light, Kerr, Smith, Melvin, White, 153 Hemenway. Additional buildings may be closed at the discretion of Housing & Residential Life.

  • II. Law Students
    Only Law Students who are continuing in the same room, in an open building, may stay in their room during the Intersession period. All others must opt for one of the following:

(1) Move from their old assignment to their new assignment;

(2) Vacate the residence hall by 7:00 PM on the last day of Final Exams.

Students who maintain residency during Intersession and then cancel their housing arrangement for the subsequent term will be charged for Intersession housing. Students will be charged at their current housing rate on a prorated weekly basis.

Students who are not authorized to stay during Intersession will not be given access to the building.

It is the responsibility of the resident to make move-out arrangements with the residence hall staff. Failure of the student to contact their current and new Residence Director or failure to enter or vacate in accordance with move-in and move-out dates published by Housing & Residential Life, will result in disciplinary action which could include loss of housing privileges. For more information about move-out periods, please refer to A Guide to Residence Hall Living and/or read the intersession move-out materials which are printed each term and distributed to residents approximately one month before the end of each academic term.

 

Room and Dining Program Charges

Dining Program Rates for the 2013-2014 academic year will be available late in the spring of 2013. Note that room and dining program charges are subject to revision by the Board of Trustees at any time. Charges are assessed each term and can be viewed on your student account.

Termination Charge and Room Rate Adjustments

The University provides on-campus and leased accommodations that are assigned each term. Students are billed at the beginning of each term and are obligated to pay the full charge for the term. The high demand for on- campus housing makes it necessary for Housing & Residential Life to enforce its cancellation policy strictly.

It is imperative to note that a student whose Residence Hall and Dining License Agreement is revoked for disciplinary reasons is subject to the same financial assessments as outlined below.

Students who are suspended or expelled from the University will have their current and any active housing application(s) cancelled effective the date of suspension. When suspension or expulsion is sanctioned, the student will be charged in accordance with the Termination Fee Policy for Withdrawal from the University (see below). All housing deposits on file will be forfeited. Upon re-admittance to the University, the student must reapply for housing and if capacity has been reached, the student will be placed on the housing wait list.

Use of University Housing Facilities

Residence halls, suites, and apartments owned or leased by Northeastern University are available only to students living in our residence community, their invited guests, and other persons authorized by Housing & Residential Life. Unauthorized entry to, or use of, University housing facilities is prohibited. Residents are not permitted to use their residence hall room or mailbox for the purpose of conducting profit or not-for-profit business transactions and/or commercial enterprises.

Appliances

Only a limited number of appliances approved by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) are permitted within the Housing & Residential Life system. Prohibited personal items include: plastic milk crates and stackable storage containers that are not fire resistant, non-metal waste baskets, candles, incense, halogen lamps, sun lamps, immersion heaters, etc. For a detailed list of approved appliances and policy statements, please refer to A Guide to Residence Hall Living.

Alterations to Premises

Residents are prohibited from defacing their rooms or any other part of the residence hall. This can include but is not limited to: removal of any University equipment or furniture; altering or replacing door locks; making electrical or structural alterations; use of nails, screws, or any material that defaces surfaces; construction of lofts; and painting of the residence. For fire safety and health code reasons, residents are not permitted to add personal furniture, including but not limited to futons, mattresses, and couches to their room/apartment. Students who do not adhere to this policy may be referred to the Office of Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution for disciplinary proceedings which may result in the loss of housing privileges.

In-Room Safes

In-Rooms Safes have been installed in some residence halls through the vendor SafeDecisions. The rental agreement of in-hall safes is an agreement that applies only to SafeDecisions and the student; this agreement is between the student and SafeDecisions. Northeastern University is, in no way, associated with the agreement between SafeDecisions and the student, and will not be held liable under any circumstances. Students may not reassign this agreement or sublet the safe or any part thereof. Students agree to follow all instructions provided by SafeDecisions for the operations and use of the assigned safe. Students will not store any perishable items, explosives, highly flammable, toxic or otherwise dangerous material or materials prohibited by law in the safe. Students will not operate or use the safe in any manner that violates any law, regulation or rule including any University rules or regulations, policies or procedures.

During the rental term, upon reasonable notice to the student, SafeDecisions staff accompanied by University staff may and will inspect the safe. In the event that the safe needs repairs, SafeDecisions staff accompanied by University staff will perform the repairs during daytime hours. In the event of an emergency or proper request from law enforcement authorities, the University has the ability to and may unlock and open the safe for inspection.

Maintenance and Housekeeping

Student requests for repairs to residence hall furnishings or equipment must be made on-line at www.workreq.neu.edu. If you have any questions about this process or need further assistance please contact your hall staff. Repairs to University-owned or leased facilities must be completed by authorized University personnel. For urgent matters, (i.e. flooding, heating problems, etc.) students should contact Facility Services Customer Services at 617.373.2754 (available 24 hours/day, 7 days/week).

As the Licensor, Northeastern may enter the premises to make repairs, to inspect, or to show the premises to a prospective purchaser, licensee, mortgagee, or its agents. Northeastern may also enter the premises if the premises appear to have been abandoned by the Licensee, if a university policy is violated, in the event of an emergency, for any health or safety reasons, or if otherwise permitted by law.

Residents are expected to keep their rooms orderly, safe, and sanitary. The University provides professional housekeeping services in common areas such as lounges, hallways, and bathrooms. Please note that only traditional residence hall bathrooms are cleaned by University personnel; bathrooms, kitchens, and common living areas in suites and apartments must be cleaned and maintained regularly throughout the term by the resident(s). Failure to maintain a minimum standard of cleanliness may result in a cleaning charge and/or disciplinary action which could include loss of housing privileges.

Accessible Rooms for Disabled Students

Housing & Residential Life reserves the right at any time to utilize specially designed rooms, suites, or apartments to provide for the residential needs of students who have disabilities. However, the department will attempt to reassign non-disabled students during the move-out/room assignment period at the end of each term.

Abandonment

Students are responsible for removing all personal possessions when they vacate their rooms, apartments, or suites. Any possessions left in campus housing facilities after the voluntary or involuntary termination of the License Agreement will be considered abandoned, will be discarded by the University, and the student will be billed an additional charge for removal. Students may also face disciplinary action which could include loss of housing privileges.

Student Room Inspection Tours

The University reserves the right to conduct in-person inspections of student rooms for the purpose of assessing furniture inventory, general room condition, as well as emergency or general maintenance needs. Except in case of emergency, Housing & Residential Life will notify residents (via poster, flyer, or memo) prior to entering a student's room.

University staff will conduct routine inspection tours several times during the academic year. Inspections typically occur during the 4-6th week of the term.

University staff reserve the right to enter any space listed as “vacant” to inspect and prepare the space for a new arrival.

Damage/Cleaning Charges

The student is responsible for all Northeastern University property in his/her room and elsewhere in the residence hall. Upon check-in and check-out, residents must complete a Room/Apartment/Suite Condition Form with hall staff. This form confirms the condition of the room/suite/apartment. Any pre-existing conditions in the apartment/bedroom should be noted at check-in by the resident. Failure to do so may result in supplementary charges for any damage which may occur through the length of the resident's occupancy in the room. Residents will be billed for damages that are beyond normal wear and tear. If a resident does not complete the check-out process with hall staff, s/he waives the right to appeal supplementary charges. If damage cannot be attributed to any one individual, charges will be assessed equally among all room occupants.

If there is loss/damage to common areas of any campus housing facility and Northeastern University cannot identify the individual(s) responsible, the University may require several or all of the hall's residents to pay a prorated group charge covering the cost of common area repair/replacement. Students will be billed for replacement of furniture and reinstallation costs in the case of vandalism. Additionally, students may also be referred to the Office of Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution for disciplinary action which could include loss of housing privileges.

Liability

Northeastern University will not be liable for loss or damage to students or students' guests' property located in any campus housing facility. This includes, but is not limited to, damage caused by fire, flood, accidents, or loss or interruption of heat, electricity, burglary, theft, or vandalism.

Sublicense

Students may not convey their right in university housing to anyone. They may not sublicense their housing space, their license agreement or make any arrangement for someone to take over housing payments or move into the space assigned to them without the express written permission of the university. A student who violates this policy will lose all future opportunities to apply for housing and be liable for all costs incurred by the university including any expenses related to the removal of any third party. In addition, students face sanctions for violations of the University's Code of Student Conduct. Students residing in University owned or sponsored facility without the written permission of the University are trespassing and will be removed immediately.

Check-out Policy

Living on campus is a privilege, not a right. Failure to enter or vacate in accordance with move-in & move-out dates published by the department will result in formal disciplinary action up to and including revocation of housing privileges.

 

Residence Hall Staff

Each on-campus housing facility, including leased properties is managed by a Residence Director who supervises a trained staff which includes Graduate Assistants and Resident Assistants who have the authority to enforce this License Agreement.

Students are obligated to respect the authority of the Housing & Residential Life staff and comply with requests that are made by staff members in the performance of their duties.

 

Housing & Residential Life Policies

Resident students are prohibited from engaging in any of the following behaviors: conduct in or about any residence facility that poses a threat to the health or safety of themselves, others, or property; behavior that interferes with the rights or well-being of others; or personal actions that violate any provision of this agreement, or any rule, regulation, or policy of the University or any applicable law.

Fire Safety

All persons are expected to observe fire safety policies and procedures. Fire extinguishers, smoke detectors, alarm systems, and fire escapes are not to be tampered with by any student. If a fire alarm sounds, ALL occupants must exit the facility at the nearest emergency exit.

Restricted Areas

Any resident student or guest of a resident student who is found in restricted areas (including balconies and residence hall rooftops) will be subject to termination of this Agreement and loss of housing privileges.

Keys and University Identification Card

Resident students are not permitted to transfer, duplicate, or give keys or university identification cards to other persons, nor to change door lock(s). Students will be charged for the loss of room keys and/or required core lock changes. A detailed policy of the lock-out procedure is contained in A Guide to Residence Hall Living.

Students may not install any lock device that prohibits University personnel from entering the building, apartment, or individual room. Prohibited devices include, but are not limited to: dead bolts, door chains, slide bolts, and lock sets.

Guests

Guests must be escorted and signed in by the specific resident student with whom they are visiting, and both must show proper photo identification to the Proctor (residence hall security representative). The guest must be escorted by the resident student at all times, and must also observe all rules that apply to the resident student. The resident student is responsible for the conduct and behavior of his/her guest. Any damage or vandalism by the guest is the responsibility of the resident student. Overnight guests must be at least 16 years old and may not stay overnight beyond three (3) consecutive nights. Guests younger than the age of 16 may not stay overnight.

Pets

For health reasons, animals other than fish and approved Seeing Eye or service animals are not allowed in any housing facility owned or leased by the University. Fish are permitted in containers with a maximum volume equal to or less than 25 gallons.

Dining Services

Each resident participating in the dining service program must present their University identification card at the dining hall in order to be served a meal. This meal card is non-transferable, is the property of Northeastern University, and must be surrendered to any University official upon request. Alteration or use of this card for any unauthorized purpose will result in additional charges, disciplinary action which could include loss of housing privileges, and/or confiscation of the meal card. Food and related articles may not be taken from the dining room, except as permitted by Dining Services. To prevent loss and theft, the University reserves the right to inspect knapsacks and bags at the exits of the dining halls. During weekends, vacations, and official closings, the University reserves the right to consolidate dining facilities.

Leased Properties

Any students living in Leased Properties will receive and must review additional materials concerning Safety and Security, including Fire Safety.

Family Housing

Northeastern University does not provide housing for married couples, spousal equivalents, or dependent children.

Age of Residents

All residents residing in Northeastern University housing must be seventeen years of age or older at the time of move-in. If under the age of 18, a parent or legal guardian must also sign this Agreement.

 

Emergency Contact Information

All students must provide emergency contact information to Northeastern University and are responsible for keeping this information current and accurate.

Under Federal Law:

  1. If a student is under the age of 18, the institution will notify the parent or guardian when they are reported missing, in addition to the student’s designee.
  2. The contact information provided by the student will be registered confidential and only be accessible to authorized campus officials
  3. Local law enforcement agencies will be notified of a missing student.

The termination credit policy and the cancellation charge schedule for the residence and dining program is described in Attachment A. I (and the guarantor, if applicable) agree to pay in full all of the residence and dining charges prior to the beginning of that term's registration. I agree to occupy the residence accommodations to which I may be assigned and to take the dining program exclusively for my own use and not allow any portion of such residence accommodation or dining program to be used by any other person. I understand that I may not sublicense the space to which I have been assigned. Violation of this provision immediately terminates this agreement. I understand and agree that the University reserves the right to increase its residence and dining rates for any term, including the right to assess increases in energy costs associated with the operation of its residence facilities. Such increases, if assessed, shall be applied to the residence charge in the form of a pro-rated adjustment.

I (and the guarantor, if applicable) understand and agree that Northeastern University, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to assign and reassign students in the Housing & Residential Life system or to revoke and terminate any License Agreement at any time for any reason set forth in, but not limited to, Attachment A. I (and the guarantor, if applicable) understand and agree that, in the event that I am reassigned to a residence with a higher/lower charge than that for the accommodation initially assigned, I will be assessed/credited a pro-rated portion of the difference between the charge initially payable and the charge payable after reassignment.

I (and the guarantor, if applicable) understand and agree that the University shall not be responsible for any delay and/or non-delivery of utilities or other services to the residence facilities or any nonperformance and, losses, both personal and property, hereunder resulting directly or indirectly from natural causes; the enactment or issuance of any law, ordinance, regulation, ruling or order; lack of the usual means of transportation; fires; floods; explosions; strikes; or other accidents or other events or contingencies beyond the University's control.

I further agree to abide by the policies, procedures, rules, and regulations that may be established by Housing & Residential Life in the interests of health, safety, and the proper conduct of residents and the orderly and efficient operation and administration of the Housing & Residential Life system and by all other policies, rules, regulations, and codes formulated by the University, including, but with limitation to, all academic and social conduct rules and regulations. Violations of any of the terms of the License Agreement may result in disciplinary actions and/or revocation of the License Agreement and housing privileges. Also, I understand that prior to moving in, students living in leased properties are responsible to review additional materials provided concerning safety and security issues, including fire safety.
