Fall 2023 Semester Move Out Procedure for Residents Not Returning in the Spring

Check Out Process

Attend the hall meeting with your RM, where the check-out process will be discussed; look for emails and flyers from your RM on when and where this will take place.

Sign-Up at the Residential Building Office for a time to check out of your room with an RM.

Once you have check out with the RMs, please complete the Check Out Form in the office.

Return your room and mailbox key to the office and make sure to complete the Housing Cancellation Form as well.

Fines and Damage Fees

Please know that any damages to the conditions of the room or the furniture may result in damage fees; fees are found in the Community Guide on pages 32-34.

Failure to check out in the process outlined above will result in an improper check out fee of $50.00. Any trash the custodial services must take out will be charged the hourly cleaning rate.

Failure to return room and mailbox keys at the time of check out will result in a fee of $150.00 for the room key and $10.00 for the mailbox key.

All residents moving out of their Fall 2023 assignment and not returning in the spring are to move out of their room 24 hours after their last final exam; a late check out fee of $25.00 for each half-hour that a resident remains past the check out time may be applied for failure to check out on time.
