Bed Linens/ Room Checks

Just a quick reminder for students in the Kreuzberg apartments: Your bed linens and towels will still be changed this week (Tuesday for Melchiorstr. and Thursday for Adalbertstr.). Please be sure to have everything off of your bed and your floor space clear. Towels you want changed should be placed in one pile.

And for all students, don’t forget to have your apartment clean and the trash taken out before Friday at 10am! This will save both you and the TAs a lot of trouble when they come around to make sure everything is in order before you depart.
