Fall Break Is Almost Here!

William & Mary Fall Break is almost here and there are a few things to relay to you before you hit the road on your break. 

Before leaving your apartment on Fall Break (or during any extended absence)…

Please be sure to do the following for the safety of your apartment and to conserve energy:

  1. Take your trash and recycling to the respective dumpster,
  2. Do not leave standing water or dirty dishes in the sink, or food left out/open,
  3. Turn off all interior lights, including mini-lights, string lights, and rope lights,
  4. Remove any fans and screens from windows,
  5. Fully close and lock all windows* (for locking the windows: LEFT is LOCKED; right is unlocked).
    – To fully unlock the window, make sure both window locks are turned to the right.
    – Close both window sashes (up and bottom so the lock on each aligns)
    – Turn both locks to the LEFT so they are both LOCKED.
  6. Lock the front door. Make sure you fully close the door before locking it from the outside.

* For apartments located on the 1st floor, a tightly fit tension rod between the lower and upper sash can be added for extra protection

Thank your for your cooperation!

Have a fun and safe Fall Break!
