Orientation Sophs, a volunteer committee of enthusiastic and committed upper year students, will be at Huron to greet you and direct you to registration areas.

Responsibility for Contents
You will receive a room inventory form at check-in; please complete it carefully with your Don. The completed form is retained by the Department of Housing and Student Life as a check against loss of or damage to the room and/or its contents at the end of the year.
The Department of Housing and Student Life holds you financially responsible for any damage or loss to your room or its contents, and also for the cleanliness of the room upon vacating.
If you are assigned to suite-style accommodations, you are jointly responsible, with the other occupants of the suite, for cleaning, damage or losses to the shared lounge space in the suite.

This policy along with 24-hour quiet hours during the final exam period ensures that the residence buildings remain a noise-free zone for those residents who are still studying for their examinations.
Students must participate in the Checkout Procedures to be eligible to receive their damage deposit refund.
Moving into a new community and a new way of living can be a challenge, but the Residence Life Program at Huron has been set up to make that transition as smooth as possible. For one thing, there are people here to help. There are fifteen members of Huron's Residence Life Staff, who live with you in the residence and are trained to maintain an environment conducive to sleep, study and the well-being of the residents; ensure the enforcement of the residence regulations and guidelines; provide residents with advice and resources regarding all aspects of university life; and participate as full members of the residence community. What's more, they have all been, at one time or another, exactly where you are now: a little nervous, a little excited, and full of questions about university and living in residence.
When you move into residence at Huron, one of the first people you will meet is your Don. Dons are experienced upper-year students who wish to live in residence in order to provide a leadership role on their floor or in their house. They are willing advisors and resource people, and are available to talk about any social, academic, or personal concerns you might have. Dons help to enforce the residence rules and college standards so that you can sleep, study and socialize comfortably. Dons also organize social and academic programs under the direction of the Head Dons which will entertain you, give you the opportunity to meet new people, inform you on a range of student related issues, relieve you of stress, and maximize your enjoyment of residence life.
The Huron Residence Life Staff has two Head Dons, one of whom lives in Hellmuth and the other in O'Neil/Ridley. These students are generally in the third or fourth year of their University degree and have had experience as a resident and as a member of a Residence Life Staff team. One of the keys to successful residence living is academic and social programming, for which the Head Dons are responsible. Because of their experience, the Head Dons are able to provide support and leadership to the Dons and assist the Residence Managers with the day-to-day operation of the Residence Life Program.
The day-to-day management of our Residence Life Program is handled by our Residence Manager. The Residence Manager is a professional or graduate student who has had experience with residence living and is committed to ensuring that residents have exceptional residence experiences. The Residence Manager is responsible for the supervision and training of the Dons, building management, advising residents, and handling conduct and discipline issues. The Residence Manager reports directly to the Director of Housing and Student Life.
