Health and Wellness inspections are intended to inspect the cleanliness of CSU housing units. Inspections are designed to identify health and wellness threats and the general condition of dorm rooms. All residents are required to have a monthly room inspection. Follow-ups will be made as necessary.

During Health and Wellness Inspections, the Resident Advisor will check for overall cleanliness of the room. It is each resident’s responsibility to maintain a clean room and bathroom. Some items and areas that will be checked during these inspections are:

  • Floor
  • Trash
  • Mirrors
  • Furniture surfaces
  • Clothing not put away
  • Bathroom (sinks, shower, toilet, trash cans, floor)
  • Damages
  • Maintenance requests

 Items that are prohibited in dorms will be identified and confiscated. They are:

  • Pets
  • Hot plates or any open burner device (including cookers, toasters, toaster ovens and grills)
  • Guns, metal point darts, knives, or any object that could be used as a weapon
  • Drugs or drug paraphernalia
  • Tobacco products
