A Parent’s Guide to On-Campus Housing at NCK Tech
Frequently Asked Questions
1) Who should my student call if something is not working properly
in the room?
The student can visit the Housing Supervisor and fill out a Work
Order Request which is then given to the Dorm Maintenance
2) What if my student and his/her roommates can’t get along?
The first step is to ask your student to discuss the concerns with
his/her roommate(s) and try to resolve the conflict together. Many
times, clarifying communication and expectations between roommates
is the first step in successfully navigating a roommate conflict. If
the conflict remains unresolved, your student should ask their
Resident Assistant (RA) for advice/guidance in the situation. If
issues persist, and the student does not feel that they are able to
work with their RA, they are asked to talk with the Housing
Supervisor, and together as a team they will work out a solution.
Remember that this is probably your child’s first time living on
their own away from you. They need time to grow and make adjustments
in order to be successful adults. It is best that as parents you
strive to have your child handle these situations as described above
and not by having you call the school. Legally, after your child
turns 18 and moves onto our campus, we are not allowed to discuss
with you anything without their permission.

Supervisor’s house for on-campus students to use. It is equipped

other laundry supplies. There is also another self-service laundry
mat in downtown Beloit.

graduation. These contracts are legally binding.

8) Should my student purchase renters’ insurance before arriving on
campus? What happens if personal belongings are stolen from the
Although precautions are taken to maintain adequate security, the
college cannot assume responsibility for the loss or damage to
student possessions from any cause whatsoever. Students are
encouraged to carry personal property insurance. This is often
available as a rider on the parent’s homeowner’s or renter’s
insurance policy. If personal items are stolen or missing, your
student should contact their RA and Housing Supervisor immediately.
Students are encouraged to always lock their doors and close their
windows when they are gone.
