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 8 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 13 at 12PM (noon), whichever comes first. Graduating Students must request Extended Stay (see below).
Detailed Move-Out dates are available on our Important Dates page.
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. After you have left, Department of Residence Life representatives will inspect your room for any damages.
