Before you leave our residential community, there are a few steps you need to take to close out your room assignment.
Move-out Deadlines: Residents should plan to be moved out by noon on the last Friday of finals week (or noon on the Sunday after commencement if graduating). Find this fall's official move-out deadlines on this page. Students who need an extension of that deadline can request one through the move-out appointment process.
Move-out Appointments: We ask that you let us know what day you plan to move out of your assignment so we can plan for the inspection and cleaning procedures that need to begin as soon as possible. You should go to My Housing to select a move-out appointment and find the required cleaning checklist and key drop location for your hall. If you need to request an extension to move out after the deadline listed above, you can find the link to the request form in the move-out appointment selection portal. Please note that residents who are granted an extension will be charged a $50/night fee.
Failure to meet the scheduled checkout time or appointment will result in a $100.00 minimum late checkout fee with an additional $50.00 per hour not to exceed $250.00. If you fail to check out officially according to these checkout documents, an improper checkout charge will be assessed to your student account. This will be in addition to any damage charges for which you may be responsible.
Express Check-out: We use the Express Checkout process, which allows residents to deposit their room key(s) to a secured location during business hours, overnight, and weekends through closing. You can collect an Express Checkout key envelope from your RA or from the key drop location listed with your move-out appointment in My Housing. Fill out that form and deposit your key inside it once all of your belongings have been removed from your room.
Preparing Your Room: At the time you move-out all of your personal belongings must be removed from your room, all trash removed, everything off the walls, etc. Charges will be assessed based on the condition of the room at the time of the inspection.
- Please review the list of your cleaning responsibilities for Traditional Rooms and Apartments. Any resident who leaves their room/apartment in unclean or in damaged condition will be subjected to potential cleaning or damage fees. A list of potential damage fees is on the Move-out website.
- Be sure to submit any lingering work orders now so that maintenance repairs can happen before your inspection. If you’re moving out, there is no need to submit a work order for a shower curtain replacement.
Green Goodbyes: Looking to put your reusable items to good use instead of the dumpster before moving out? Give your clothing in good condition and unopened food a better purpose while you move out – drop those items in the Green Goodbyes collection boxes, located in area offices throughout the week of finals.
Collect and forward your mail: Before you leave, be sure to collect any remaining mail or packages you may have, and forward your mail to your future address.
Don't Forget Your Bike: All residents leaving their assignment should also collect their bike from any residential bike storage.
