Community Damage Charges and Payment
Any property damage that occurs as a result of student actions will
result in repayment by the student(s) involved. Once a student(s) has
been identified by the Residence Life staff or Hostel staff as
having involvement they will be subject to a conduct meeting with the
Director of Student Life. Included in the
sanctions will be monetary repayment for all damages. The student(s)
will be billed by BFIT.
If responsibility for the damage cannot be accurately determined, the
entire floor will be responsible for repayment of damages. The total
cost of damage and repair will be assessed by both the Hostel
staff and BFIT administration. The Director of Student Life works
proactively to maintain the safety and cleanliness of the residence
hall, which means students may face community charges for constant
disregard for the maintenance of the living area.
Students wishing to appeal room damage charges must do so, in
writing, within 30 days of the charges being applied to the student’s
account. All appeals must be in writing and submitted to the Director of Student Life. Community damage charges that are applied to the whole
floor, or a group on the floor, are not able to be appealed.
Charges that are applied to a student's account can be paid in person
at the Student Accounts office (in Enrollment Services) or online HERE. Make sure you use the "Housing Deposit" section.
