Room Damage Rates

Billing for damage assessments will take place after inspections, after the closing of the residence halls in the Spring, or on an as-needed basis. All charges will be placed directly on the student's bursar account; bills will be sent to the student's permanent address. Appeals for damage charges should be forwarded to the Administrative Manager for Damage Billing at ORLDamageRH@fordham.edu.

Standard Charges

General charges are listed here for your information. In community damage or vandalism cases in which the responsible party or parties are unidentified, a "per resident" charge is assigned. In cases of vandalism in which repair or replacement services are required, the full cost and a punitive fine will be distributed among the residents.
