Group billing helps to deter vandalism. These costs inevitably result in increased room rates for all residents. Most vandalism that occurs in the community occurs by our residents that call the community their homes. The purpose of group billing is to encourage individuals, peers and neighbors to come forward to report damage/vandalism. If not, the building or unit residents will be responsible for the cost to repair or replace the damaged area. The process may sound drastic, but it works very well.
Group billing charges will be assessed throughout the semester as damages occur. Sierra Vista Village staff will record charges assessed to each individual student. At the time of check out, each student is responsible for paying his or her portion of all group-billing charges in full. Students who do not choose to pay group billing charges at the time of check out will be charged an additional $10. The $10 service charge and group billing charges will be deducted from the student’s room deposit.
Our apartment units have fully equipped kitchens. We encourage our residence to practice safe cooking techniques. Always make certain that all burners have been turned off before leaving your apartment.
