Bed Bug Prevention

Preventing Bed Bugs

Along with our education materials and process, University Housing conducts residence hall room and building inspections.

Inspections

University Housing performs routine annual inspections on residence hall rooms, offices and common areas for bed bugs. If any bed bugs are found, University Housing will treat the room so that residents can be confident that they are moving into a bed bug-free room.

  • Keep the room clean
  • Inspect bedding
  • Perform backpack and room inspection frequently
  • Do not bring in used furniture, appliances or clothing reminders
