Move out

Preparing to move out of housing

It's always sad to see our residents move out, when the time comes we want the process to be smooth and stress-free.  During spring quarter, Residential Life staff provides information regarding the year end move out process.  This information includes making an appointment to check out, how to safely dispose of items and where to donate items. 

Looking to move our before end of your lease?  You will need to read about early termination and the express checkout process.


Academic year move out

Student housing closes for the academic year on Friday, June 10 at 12noon.    More information will be emailed to residents in April 2022.  

If you would like to stay past that date, apply for summer housing by visiting the Husky Village website.


Early termination

If you intend to move out of housing early and terminate your housing lease, you will want to thoroughly review your housing agreement in order to understand the financial penalties associated with breaking a lease.  Additionally, it is important that you reach out to and work with Capstone Management before you move out and turn in your keys.

To terminate your lease, you must:

  • Email Capstone Management at info@uwbothellhousing.com and tell them that you would like to terminate and complete the termination form they send you.
  • Capstone will email you to confirm your move out date and will inform Residential Life of the move out.
  • Please be aware that housing payments and termination fees will apply even if you have terminated your lease.  Refer to your housing agreement.
  • Follow the Express Checkout Process in order to avoid improper checkout fees.  

Express checkout process

Residential Life uses an Express Check Out process with a no-contact check out which allows you to move out at a time that is most convenient for you. On your assigned move out date (which you indicate on the termination), please complete the following steps:

  • Get an Express Check Out Envelope from the Husky Hall Drop Box, located to the right of the Husky Hall front doors.

  • Pack up and remove all belongings from your unit including your room, bathroom, and all shared spaces.

  • Clean thoroughly all spaces in your unit that were assigned to you and all shared spaces.

  • Check your mailbox for any mail.

  • Lock your unit door before sealing in the envelope.

  • Complete the form on the Express Check Out Envelope.

    • If there are any damages you caused, fill out the appropriate fields.

    • Place your unit and mail key in the envelope.

    • Seal the envelope.

  • Return your completed and sealed Express Check Out Envelope to the Residential Life Front Desk at Husky Hall, or, if the desk is closed, to the drop box outside the Husky Hall front doors.  If you use the drop box, be sure to push the packet all the way into the slot.

Due to mail and package limitations, once you check out any mail or packages received will be returned to sender.  When ordering packages, double check the mailing address before purchasing.

Additional questions about your termination, should be directed to Capstone Management by emailing info@uwbothellhousing.com.
