Re: Property Lost/Stolen Due to College Housing Unlocking Doors
IF there was no notice you were required to be out by Wednesday, you can argue there was negligence on their part that allowed your property to be stolen.
I suspect they will come up with something either in the student handbook or some other publication that all dorms were to be vacated by the 30th and any property remaining is considered abandoned. If they can't, make a demand for the value (the depreciated value, not new purchase cost) for whatever you had stolen. If they will not pay, sue them.
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
