Exclamation Freshies, do u know that helping a senior to get a room will have consequences?

Such act is not allowed in NTU rules and regulations. So what will happen if you do that?
1) If your senior gets caught for staying in the room, registered under your name, both of you will be evicted.
2) Eviction means you can never ever stay in hall, as you'll be blacklisted
3) Worse is, if the senior you are helping has not paid the full hall fees, you are the one liable to pay for it despite eviction, since the room is under your name.

Hope you can foresee the consequences before accepting that little amount of premium that your senior is offering you.

For those asking for sources:

Section 4b, c, and section 5

freshies guaranteed a room. seniors had a hard time getting room becoz they cannot meet cut-off. hence the exploitation of freshies to help them guarantee a room

yup. room will still be registered under junior's name, and in the eyes of NTU admin, junior is liable to pay the hall fees

juniors/freshies are guaranteed rooms when they apply. Maybe not all but still priority is given to the freshies. hence seniors need to rely on juniors

all freshies will be given a room when they apply now. which could be a contributing factor as to the crazy-high cut off point for HAS, since there r lesser and lesser rooms for seniors, with ever-increasing freshie intake

New halls have been built in NTU. more new halls are coming up. In a few years time, there will be enough for everyone. No more of such a problem
