Online Housing Damage Appeal Form

In the event that you are assessed damage fines, you will have a means to appeal those charges through this Online Housing Damage Appeal Form. Do not submit this form before fines have been applied to your student account. If you are assessed damage fines, then you will be notified of these fines by the Business Office in your business office statement. There are a few guidelines to this process that you need to understand if you decide to appeal any damages.

 

  •   Residential student housing damage appeals will be accepted online only through the submission of this form.

  •   Phone calls, text messages, office visits or email to The Office of Housing and Residence Life or any other office will not be accepted as an official appeal.

  •   Online appeals will only be accepted after damage charges have been applied to your student account. Appeals submitted prior to charges being placed on your student account will not be considered and it will be up to you to resubmit this form at the appropriate time.

  •   The Housing Damage Appeals Committee will meet once a quarter or as needed to address official and properly submitted damage appeals.†

  •   Students will be notified via email of the status of their official and properly submitted appeal.

  •   If a late fee has been assessed due to a damage charge and the student has successfully appealed the charge(s), the late fee will be reversed.

  •   Transcripts will not be released with a balance due.

  •   Students may choose to pay the outstanding housing damage balance prior to the outcome of the appeal. If the appeal is in favor of the student, those charges will be reversed and credited to the studentís account.

  •   Partial reversals of charges are possible. (i.e., some charges could stand while others may be reversed or decreased).

  •   In situations where one roommate or suitemate vacates before the other(s) and there is damage assessed to a common area (living room, kitchen, bathroom, etc.), all residents assigned to that apartment, room or suite will be charged equally until the person responsible can be identified in writing. Residents must come to an agreement and the responsible party must provide signed documentation acknowledging their responsibility to The Office of Housing and Residence Life via fax (575) 538-6316 or via U.S. Postal Service at PO Box 680, Silver City New Mexico, 88062, or from their Western New Mexico student email account to housing@wnmu.edu.

  •   All decisions of the Housing Damage Appeals Committee are final.
