Entry into Occupied Apartments

During reasonable hours and with reasonable notice, except in emergencies, the housing agreement authorizes Columbia to enter the unit to:

  • inspect the unit
  • for health, safety or emergency reasons
  • to ensure that the resident remains in compliance with the terms of the housing agreement 

Vacant rooms in student apartment shares may also be shown to prospective residents during the superintendent's working hours; in such cases, the prospective resident would be accompanied by building staff.

In the event of an emergency, advance notice may not be provided.
