TERMS & CONDITIONS
TERMS & CONDITIONS OF THE HOUSING AGREEMENT
A. Resident Behavior/Agreement Termination.
Residents are expected to participate in the housing educational activities designed to enhance the quality of life. Residents agree to abide by the Rules of the Taipei Medical University, as well as the government laws. The University may reassign or remove any Resident from the room in accordance with established procedures as a consequence of the Resident’s violation of University rules, policies, housing regulations, or the Terms & Conditions of the Housing Agreement. Violations of University, Rules or regulations may be grounds for termination of the Housing Agreement and forfeiture of associated costs.
Residents’ rooms are furnished with the appropriate number of beds, mattresses…etc. Residents must provide their own bed linens, pillows, towels, and other personal items.
C. Right of Privacy & Room Entry.
The University respects Residents’ rights to privacy in their rooms and makes a reasonable effort to give at least 24 hours notice for damage, maintenance or cleanliness inspections. The University regards room entry for purposes of improvements, maintenance, cleaning, and recovery of unauthorized university-owned property, and fire and safety inspections as necessary for the health and general welfare of all residents. Such entry is agreed to and authorized by the Resident as part of this Agreement. Entry without notice occurs in emergencies to ensure protection of life, limb and/or property, and upon a Resident’s request for maintenance services. Entry and inspections of rooms by University or law officials for purposes of discovering violations of University rules and regulations, or government law shall be reasonable and in accordance with University policy and government law.
It is not the policy of TMU to move students from one assignment to another unnecessarily. However, situations do arise that warrant relocation. Residents are expected to cooperate fully in all occasions where moves are required, such as consolidation, reassignment due to maintenance requirements, administrative moves, and other similar circumstances. Consolidation means that the Resident may be paired with a new roommate so that additional space may be freed up in the facility to accommodate new residents or single room requests. Consolidation necessitates someone moving in with the Resident or the Resident moving in with someone else. When this occurs, the Resident is notified of the date someone is moving in or the date by which the Resident is required to move to the new room assignment.
E. Care of Facilities.
1. Damages and Special Services.
The Resident agrees to be directly and financially responsible for keeping assigned space and furnishings clean and free from damage. The Resident agrees to pay established charges or actual costs, for room damages, special housekeeping, or maintenance services necessary due to misuse or abuse of facilities (beyond normal wear and tear). The Resident is responsible for an equal portion of the charges assessed to all occupants of the Residents’ room. The Resident agrees to pay established charges or actual costs, for damages to common areas (areas not in the confines of the Residents’ rooms) or special housekeeping or maintenance services necessary due to misuse or abuse of facilities or equipment for which the Resident is responsible. The Resident is responsible for an equal portion of charges assessed to all Residents of a floor/hall when those responsible cannot be identified. Damage charges are payable upon assessment.
The Resident is assigned the room and entrance keys, and agrees to: not have keys duplicated, not transfer use of the keys, and surrender the keys at the end of each term if required, or when the Resident officially checks out of the house. The Resident agrees to immediately report the loss of an assigned key and to pay any associated cost for replacement of lost keys. Replacement cost for a lost or stolen key is TWD 500 per key. Lost keys found prior to the changing of the lock core should be reported immediately to the Office of Global Engagement (OGE).
3. Access Card.
Residents agree not to transfer card to any other persons for building access. Residents agree to immediately report any lost card to OGE. Once a Resident has checked out of a residence hall they may only reenter the building as a guest of a current resident.
The University does not carry liability insurance for any Resident or Resident’s property and, therefore, does not assume responsibility to Residents or other persons, including guests, for the loss of money or valuables, damage to property, or injuries sustained on the premises.
CONDITIONS FOR TERMINATION OF THE HOUSING AGREEMENT
A. Prior to Occupancy.
Cancellations are accepted, but only in the event the cancellation is made in writing by the Resident and sent directly to OGE in accordance with the cancellation schedule.
B. After Occupancy.
OGE is aware that unforeseen circumstances may prevent a Resident from fulfilling the Housing Agreement, and agrees to work individually with these Residents. In these circumstances, the Resident is responsible for contacting OGE and should be prepared to discuss and document, in specific terms, their inability to fulfill the Housing Agreement.
FINANCIAL AND CHECK-OUT CONDITIONS
A. Fees and Payment Schedule.
The Resident agrees to pay all applicable University housing fees. Housing fees, per term, are included on the University Schedule/Bill and are payable in full on or before the due date on the bill. Residents who are evicted during the term for disciplinary reasons are responsible for that term’s full housing fees.
B. Check-Out Process.
The Resident must check out with a dorm assistant (DA) or the OGE staff.
The following steps must be completed.
1. Dorm assistant (DA) must examine the room for damages and complete the check-out portion of the check-in/check-out form. This form is then signed and dated by both the DA and the Resident. A copy of the check-in/check-out form is given to the Resident upon completion of all three check-out steps.
2. Resident must turn in all keys to the DA.
Failure to complete a proper check-out may result in the assessment of an administrative fee.
