Move Out

As the Spring Semester draws to a close, you will need to start thinking about your check-out process at the end of the semester. Following the instructions provided by our office will help ensure that your check-out goes smoothly.
At the end of the semester, you will need to move out of your residence hall room within 24 hours of your last final exam or by Monday, May 4 at 12PM (noon), whichever comes first.
Graduating students who are participating in their Commencement Ceremony must check-out within 24 hours of their ceremony or by Saturday, May 9 at 12PM (noon), whichever comes first. Graduating Students must request Extended Stay (see below).
When you have packed/removed your belongings and cleaned your room/suite/apartment, please proceed to your Building/Area Desk to check-out and return your key. Please have your Student ID ready to provide to the Desk Receptionist. If you are checking out between 10PM-6AM, return your key using the key dropbox and you will be checked out the following morning. 
After you have left, Department of Residence Life representatives may inspect your room for any damages.
Closing Community Meetings
Your Resident Advisor will be hosting a Closing Community Meeting prior to move-out (the date for your meeting will be posted by your RA). During this meeting, your RA will share important information and answer any questions you might have. Attendance is required.
