Spring Break

It’s almost Spring Break!  Can you believe it!?

There are a few things to relay to you before Spring Break:

1. Over Spring Break (weather permitting), there are plans for some exterior maintenance to the porches and landings, the stairs.  If you plan to leave your vehicle in the parking lot over Spring Break, please park it away from the porches and stairs. *NOTE* Vehicles parked in the areas shown in red below will be parked with the risk of dirt, dust, and debris getting onto them during Spring Break.

2. Before leaving for Spring Break, be sure to prepare your apartment for your absence.  Among other things, close up, put away, and clean up any open or spilled food, remove any trash, garbage, and recycling in your apartment, and put it into the proper outdoor receptacle before you leave.

Spring Break is considered an extended absence since it is more than seven (7) days), 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. Turn the heat down to 50 degrees,
  7. 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 you for your attention and cooperation!

Have a fun and safe Spring Break!
