determined by the University in its sole discretion. The Contract Termination Fee may also be waived upon
approval of the Director of Housing Services based upon compelling and unanticipated medical or financial
problems arising clearly beyond the control of the Student. The Contract Termination Fee covers the
University’s administrative costs resulting from Student vacating or failing to occupy the apartment, is agreed to
be reasonable, and is accepted as the amount of liquidated damages caused by such circumstances because it is
at this time impractical and difficult to determine actual damages. The Contract Termination Fee is in addition
to any sums owed by Student for an unauthorized termination, such as, but not limit to, room fees until the end
of the contract term or until a replacement student can be found, and assumes occupancy of the unit. It shall be
Student’s responsibility to furnish University’s Housing Assignment Office with evidence of dismissal from the
University within seven days of the effective date of dismissal.

9. IT IS FURTHER AGREED THAT:
a. University may enter Student’s room or apartment during operational working hours for cleaning, maintenance,
and/or any reason allowed by law, including to make repairs, alterations, or facility improvements to ensure
compliance with Housing and health and safety regulations, or in the event of an emergency, building
evacuation, or abandonment of the room or apartment by Student or Student’s roommate(s). Prior notice of such
entry will be given to the Student or Student’s assigned roommate(s) except in cases of emergency, abandonment
or where impractical.
b. A $25.00 late charge shall be assessed for each delinquent installment payment and each month it remains
delinquent. Failure to make a payment will result in record restriction. Due dates for payments are set forth in the
Housing Offer. Such charge is agreed to be reasonable and is accepted as the amount of liquidated damages for
each delinquent payment because at this time it is impractical and difficult to determine the added costs to
University resulting from a delinquent payment.
c. The cost of any loss or damage to the facility or its fixtures, furnishings, equipment or decoration, shall be
charged to Student if Student or Student’s guest is the cause of the loss or damage. Such cost shall be
determined by University in its sole discretion and payment shall be made by Student and be due upon receipt of
the notice. In the event the cause of any loss or damage to the facility or its fixtures, furnishings, equipment or
decoration cannot be determined after reasonable investigation by the University, the pro rata cost of such loss or
damage shall be charged to Student regardless of whether Student was present at the time the loss or damage

University Apartments. University may reassign or require Student to move to another room or apartment at

property. Renter’s insurance may be obtained from insurance companies; University does not offer renter’s
f. A breach of this Contract by Student, including but not limited to by delinquency in payment, may result in any
or all of the following actions: administrative action against Student’s status at the University, record restrictions,
and initiation of termination of tenancy proceedings.
g. University may, at its sole discretion, increase the Housing Fees by up to 5% of the total charges in the event of
unusual and unforeseen circumstances, and modify the Housing Offer accordingly.
h. In the event of a vacancy in an assigned room/apartment, University will change individual contracts to match
the remaining occupancy level which will result in an increase in Housing Fees.
i. Upon termination of this contract, Student agrees to surrender the premises to the University and to remove all
property of the Student. Any property left in the apartment after vacating the unit shall be deemed abandoned,
and the University may take possession of and use or dispose of such property as provided by law.
j. In the event Student vacates the assigned room, student is required to return the assigned room and bath to its
original condition, reasonable wear and use excepted. Failure to do so will result in damages and cleaning
charges assessed to Student. In the event Student Roommate vacates a multi-resident unit, the University may
enter the Student unit during normal business hours upon twenty-four (24) hours’ written notice to conduct and
occupancy check to confirm the Student Roommate has moved out (vacated). See University Apartments
Resident Handbook for moving out.
k. In the event Student Roommate vacates the assigned room, Student and Student Roommate are required to return
the common areas of the apartment to its original condition, reasonable wear and use excepted. Failure to do so
will result in damages and cleaning charges assessed to Student and Student Roommate.
l. The Student and Student Roommate(s) may not bring pests into the unit, knowingly or not. In the event pests are
introduced to the unit by the Student or Student Roommate(s) and are deemed by the University a hazard to
health conditions in and the safety of the surrounding units, Student and Student Roommate(s) will be liable
financially for eradication measures, including, but not limited to, pest control and furniture and/or carpet
replacement. The University reserves the right to terminate this contract upon service of a Three-day (3-day)
Notice to Quit to address any infestation issues. In the event the University serves such as a 3-day notice, the
University is not liable for identifying, obtaining, or paying for alternate housing; rather, the foregoing is the
Student’s and Student Roommate’s (or Roommates’) responsibility and liability.
10. UTILITY SERVICE: Pursuant to Civil Code section 1941.4, University is responsible for installing one useable telephone
jack and for placing and maintaining the inside telephone wiring in good working order in residential dwellings. Student
is responsible for the telephone and any wiring between the telephone and the telephone jack as well as cost of service
and/or cost of installing a line(s). If there is a problem with telephone service, Student must first determine that the
problem is not in the telephone or the wiring running to the telephone jack; once it is determined the problem is not in
either, Student must notify the University Apartments North Maintenance Office, and the University will arrange for any
necessary repair of the telephone jack or inside wiring. Cost of repairs not under the responsibility of the University shall
be borne by the Student. The University agrees to pay for water, trash removal service, electricity and gas, as applicable.
11. WAIVER, MODIFICATION, NON-ENFORCEMENT: Any waiver or modification of the conditions of this Contract
shall be in writing signed by Student and an authorized representative of the University’s Housing Administration. Any
waiver or non-enforcement by University of any term or condition of this Contract shall not constitute a waiver of any
subsequent breach of the same or any other term or condition of this Contract. Acceptance by University of any rental
payment after Student’s breach of any provision of this Contract shall not be deemed a waiver of such provision or any
prior or subsequent breach of any provision, other than Student’s failure to make timely payment of the rental installment
so accepted, whether or not University knew of the prior breach at the time such rent was accepted.
12. CERTIFICATION. Student certifies that the statements made on the application in connection with this Contract are true
and correct. Falsification of these statements will render this Contract null and void. Student has read and understands the
terms and conditions of this Contract and the Housing Offer which are incorporated herein by reference.

to the public via an Internet Web site maintained by the Department of Justice at www.meganslaw.ca.gov. Depending on an
offender's criminal history, this information will include either the address at which the offender resides or the community of
residence and ZIP Code in which he or she resides.
14. RENT CONTROL: Student understands the University is exempt from provisions of any local rent control ordinances.
By signing below, the undersigned indicate that they have read this Contract in full, including any and all appendices and
documents incorporated by reference, and agree to be bound by its terms.

Appendix B: University Apartments In-Room/Apartment Computing Acceptable Use Policy
UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, LOS ANGELES
UCLA Housing provides internet services through Time Warner Cable affiliated cable operator ("Operator") to facilitate the sharing of
knowledge and information while supporting and enhancing the educational and research experience of the student. Access is a
privilege and requires that individuals act responsibly across all ISPs offered by Operator. To further that goal, Operator has
developed an Acceptable Use Policy. Operator takes these issues very seriously and will enforce its rules to ensure enjoyment by all of
its members. Operator reserves the right to suspend or cancel a subscriber's account for engaging in inappropriate conduct. Subscribers
remain legally responsible for any such acts. In using the services of any ISP as provided over Operator's cable network (the "ISP

including the use of excessive bandwidth.
4. The ISP Service may not be used in a manner that interferes with Operator's efficient operation of its facilities, the provision
of services or the ability of others to utilize the ISP Service in a reasonable manner. Operator may use various tools and
techniques in order to efficiently manage its networks and to ensure compliance with this Acceptable Use Policy (“Network
Management Tools”). These may include detecting malicious traffic patterns and preventing the distribution of viruses or
other malicious code, limiting the number of peer-to-peer sessions a user can conduct at the same time, limiting the aggregate

Tools as Operator may from time to time determine appropriate.
5. The ISP Service may not be used to breach or attempt to breach the security, the computer, the software or the data of any
person or entity, including Operator, to circumvent the user authentication features or security of any host, network or
account, to use or distribute tools designed to compromise security, or to interfere with another's use of the ISP Service
through the posting or transmitting of a virus or other harmful item to deliberately overload or flood that entity's system.
However, the University and Operator, in general, cannot assure complete electronic security or privacy for personal
computing. It is important that each individual take reasonable security and privacy precautions to protect against computer
viruses and other computer attacks which may result in loss of data, unintentional release of personal information, or negative
impact on the services and facilities for others.

visual depictions of sexual acts or sexually explicit conduct involving children, or other depictions of children, the primary
appeal of which is prurient. Complaints regarding the posting, distribution, or availability of child pornographic material
should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
8. The ISP Service may not be used to upload, post, transmit or otherwise make available any materials or content that violate
or infringe on the rights or dignity of others. These include, but are not limited to, materials infringing or compromising
intellectual property rights or the ability to maintain trade secrets and other personal information as private; the ability to
avoid hate speech; threats of physical violence; harassing conduct; sexually oriented material that is offensive or
inappropriate; and unsolicited bulk e-mail.
