Health and Safety Inspections

Health and safety is an important aspect of living in residential communities. Wentworth Housing & Residential Education manages many components in ensuring students are healthy and safe when living on campus, which includes coordinating Health and Safety Inspections.  

Housing & Residential Education conducts these Health and Safety Inspection room/apartment/suite walkthroughs each semester. These unannounced visual inspections are conducted by Community Advisors and are to ensure that residential students are living in a healthy and safe environment that is in alignment with Wentworth policies. If a prohibited item(s) is identified, the item(s) will be confiscated and disposed of.   

If violations are discovered, students wishing to claim individual responsibility for violations should contact their community’s supervisor within 48 hours of the inspection. If this is not done, all members of the room/apartment/suite in which the violation occurred will be held responsible.   

  • A residential space may be revisited if a violation is found to ensure the violation was remedied  
  • Candles and other items deemed a fire hazard will not be returned to the students and will be disposed of. Students will be charged a $25 Health and Safety Violation fine if prohibited items are found.  

 Students should familiarize themselves with the list of prohibited items.
