Moving Out

Unless staying for summer, graduating, or 12-month housing, the halls close at noon on Friday, June 10, 2016. You will receive information from your RA about move out procedures and signing up for final walk-through. At the final walk-through, you will sign the Room Condition Report (RCR) and key card fom where you'll return all of your keys (including mail). Please note that prior to the final walk-through:

  • All items must be completely removed from the unit
  • Unit must be clean and vacuumed
  • Check your mailbox and empty all contents, as well as collecting and packages
  • Update your address with any postal or shipping companies, as any recieved after you leave will be returned to sender
  • Have your unit and mail key to hand to your RA
  • Have your parking permit to hand to your RA

Plan ahead!  Packing up your items and cleaning the unit may take longer than expected. We recommend making trips prior to finals week to take things home if possible.

Please leave yourself enough time to complete them before your scheduled final walk-through.

Talk with your RA if you have questions about move out.

Staying for Summer?

If your summer or 12 month assignment is the same as your current Spring assignment, you're fortunate and will not need to move! Those living in Spruce or Willow may have that option, though you will be getting new roommatesAll others will move into their summer or 12 month unit June 15th & 16th. You'll need to get your new keys and start moving by 10am Wednesday June 15th, and complete the move, including checking out of your old unit, by the following day at 5pm. Our Summer Conference Assistants will help you with the check in and check out process.

To prepare for summer transition, please consider the following:

  1. If you are not moving, make sure all shared areas (kitchen, bathroom, living room, fridge, etc.) are clean and appropriate for a new roommate(s) moving in.

  2. If you are not moving, new unit keys will be issued and needing to be picked up and old ones turned in Monday, June 13th. An e-mail notification will go out with more information.

  3. If you are moving to another unit, make sure you pack in advance, during finals week, so that you're able to easily complete the move within 24 hours.

  4. Make sure you're ready and available to pick up keys for your new unit at 10am, Wednesday June 15th.

  5. If you are moving to a new unit, make sure your current roommates do their part before they leave for summer or a new unit. Cleaning and picking up your old unit is everyone's responsibility, not just the one leaving last.
