    Has anyone ever had an inspection at uni and got charged for the room being a tip? Do you know how much they can possibly charge you for a messy room?

    They will only charge if you have damaged their property. They may tell you to clean up though.

    Are you sure? There's an inspection Monday and they left a note saying they will fine for damage (which is understandable) and UNCLEANLINESS (which seems kinda weird to me, maybe they're just trying to get people to clean up)

    Probably, but it may be things like spilt drink or food left on surfaces to go mouldy, etc, not necessarily untidiness. It's best to have a quick clear up anyway just in case.

    They're probably seeing a definition between uncleanliness and untidiness, if it's really bad then they might fine you in order to make you pick your feet (and mess) up

    When I lived in halls the incentive to tidy was that if we didn't the cleaners (paid to clean the communal areas) would clean our rooms at a non-negotiable charge of £15. I only heard of a handful of people being charged. Tbh I thought it was ridiculous.

    The kitchen is clean and the bathroom has been cleaned recently. It's only the main room that's really really cluttered. There were some stains on the carpet but I got rid of them, but I'm sure they will find something if they really want to!

    They would probably only fine you for uncleanliness that cause damage, rather than just simple messiness.

    However, if it's so messy that they can't tell the difference/can't see if there is uncleanliness causing damage due to the amount of mess, they might get funny about that too.
