Window Treatment Policy

Items covering windows that are not specified as window treatments (i.e., plywood, newspaper, cardboard, blankets, clothing, couch cushions, etc.) are not permitted in Alma College housing units. Window treatment is defined as curtains, valences, blinds, shades or any other item that could be found in a window treatment section at a store. No other items, including furniture, boxes, and electronics, may block windows, and items may not be stacked in front of windows; stacked items create an unapproved window treatment and violate the Fire Safety Codes & Fire Drills Policy by blocking window fire exits. These items are to remain removed from the windows indefinitely. If windows are covered with non-approved items, the individuals or organization will be fined $100 per covered window. If a small housing unit/individual is found non-compliant three or more times, the organization/person may face additional consequences (i.e., losing small housing unit, being removed from small housing unit, etc.).
