Technically, no, but it’s not hard to find free or affordable furniture thanks to the HC community. Many students leave furniture for incoming students when they graduate. And, some incoming students will move into apartments that are home to returning students who already have some furnishings. This should not be a source of worry for incoming students. It’s your first exercise in working with others to get creative and problem-solve.
Yes. Should a student choose to withdraw or be dismissed due to disciplinary actions, fulfillment of the legally binding lease is required in accordance with its terms.
Every year, students sign the Highland College Community Covenant which contains the commitments and practices that all students abide by during their time as an HC student. This Covenant does contain practices as they relate to housing including:
- No alcohol or tobacco of any kind allowed
- No overnight stays with members of the opposite sex
- No disruptive gatherings that disturbs or impacts the peace of another
