Inspection of LeMarchant Place Residences
Inspections are conducted several times throughout the academic year. You'll get an email to your Dal email account from the Residence Life Team 7 days before the inspections. The date will also be posted on each floor within the residence.
During the inspection, we will:
- check fire alarms and smoke detectors
- advise you on the cleanliness of your suite/shared-bathroom, or any improper health conditions, such as the build-up of garbage and/or recycling.
- identify any repairs so a request can be made to have the work completed
- ensure you are upholding the Residence Code of Conduct
- provide you with the opportunity to discuss concerns you may have about your bedroom/bathroom/suite.
If your cleaning inspection is not satisfactory, we will leave a notice and follow up after 24 hours. We expect that you will have cleaned before our second visit. If not, each of the residents in the suite will be issued a cleanliness fine (see Cleanliness policy in Residence Code of Conduct).
All residents share equal responsibility for the cleanliness of common suite areas (for example, living room, bathrooms, kitchenette). Roommate conflicts WILL NOT be considered as justification for cleanliness issues.
If you're new to Dal from high school, be sure to apply to residence by June 30 to be guaranteed a room.
