Mold and Mildew

Humidity can cause mold and or mildew to develop in our residence halls. We use water to heat and cool our buildings, and combined with North Carolina’s high relative humidity, this fosters an environment where mold and mildew can grow. To help prevent mold and mildew growth, it’s essential students do the following:

  1. Report any water problems (sink or toilet leaks, excessive pipe condensation and dripping, etc.) immediately through the on-line work order system (link at top of this page)
  2. Regularly clean your room and bathroom, including your shower liner in Hill hall.
  3. Do not leave wet towels or sweaty workout clothes/equipment lying around. Always hang to dry.
  4. Do not leave wet laundry in the washing machines; immediately move them to a dryer.
  5. If you see mold or mildew in your room or other places in your residence hall, submit a work order as soon as possible.

Tips for allergy sufferers:

  1. Take any medication that has been prescribed to you and follow the directions of your doctor. If you are symptomatic, you can visit the on-campus Health Center free of charge.
  2. Regularly dust, vacuum and clean your room to eliminate allergens from your room.
  3. If you are extremely sensitive, you may want to invest in an air purifier for your room.
