Here is some information that will assist you with checking out of your residence hall room or apartment as you prepare to wind down your spring semester coursework and exams.
You can check out of the residence halls as early as Friday, May 4.
- May 4 (Dead Day): First day to check out. Trash chutes locked at 3 p.m. and remain locked until move out is over. Recycling containers will be removed from each floor.
- May 10: Last regularly scheduled finals end
- May 12: Halls close at 2 p.m.
Follow the steps below and you’ll minimize the stress of taking finals and packing at the same time.
- Clean Your Room. No one wants to hear those words, but it’s especially true for closing. You risk additional charges if you don’t clean your room properly. Housing has a goal to avoid charging for things that can be easily corrected. Report any damages that might have happened. Finally, be sure to return your room to its original configuration. A floor plan with the original configuration will be provided to you. Cleaning supplies are available at the front desk of the hall.
- Start packing now. No harm in taking things home early if you no longer need them on campus. You can drop off your winter coats or your bike at home if you have a chance before move out happens.
- De-loft Your Bed. This is the time to restore your room and furnishings to the original condition. This includes returning beds back to the original height. There are almost 6,000 beds on campus and its impossible to de-loft them all beds prior our summer conference season. There is a charge of$45 for failing to complete de-loft and return bed heights to expected height.
- Check Out Day. Your check out time includes a 90-minute window where you can drive your car close to the hall. During that time you need to load your stuff, do a walk through with staff, sign a Room Inventory Form (RIF) and check out of the hall. Dollies are available on a limited basis. Your departure time is when you should be at the front desk ready to meet an RA to check you out of your room.
We’re glad you lived with us. We hope you come back and stay with us again next year. By working together and being patient with one another, we can ensure that Move-Out 2018 goes well for everyone.

All parking regulations will be enforced on Dead Day and throughout final exams. Resident Reserved permit requirements will be enforced until 5 p.m. May 13.
After May 13, Resident Reserved parking lots will be open for all permit types.
We understand that some people have special situations and need to stay past noon, May 11.
Any student wanting to stay longer than 24 hours after they complete their last final must complete an Extended Stay Request form from their zone/hall front desk. The Extended Stay Request form was available at the hall’s front desk beginning April 16.
You must have a valid reason for staying beyond check out. There is a $30 charge for each night beyond check out. Students participating in the commencement activities (i.e., band, choir, graduating) need to complete the form as well but will not be charged the $30 fee for the evening of May 12.
Several local nonprofit agencies applied and Potter’s House Thrift was selected as this year’s recipient. You will soon see boxes in the halls where you can donate unneeded items to this charitable cause.
You can also put any unopened, nonperishable food items that you do not wish to take home in the Jane Gearhart Full Circle Food Pantry donation boxes in your hall lobby.
Please see your RA or the Housing staff at the front desk of your building if you have additional questions about moving out.
