Residents may submit the Checkout Notice at any time during their stay, but a minimum of 8 weeks prior to departure is required to avoid fees.

Residents are permitted to bring personal items such as rugs, throw pillows, and bedspreads. Residents are encouraged to use personal items that are fire retardant.

Webster offers an “on request” approach to room changes. This means that, if a resident has requested a room and a room becomes available that meets the criteria the resident provided in their request, we will allow the resident to move to that room. We do encourage residents to resolve conflicts, and the FOUND Study Student Life Staff is trained to assist in mediation that can help residents manage their disagreements.Fees will apply for room changes. A list of room change fees will be provided to residents upon moving in.
