Moving Out

Spring Semester Move Out

Prior to moving out of your residence hall or your townhouse, students are reminded to remove everything except college provided items, including all trash and recyclables. Your room or townhouse must be cleaned, which includes sweeping, mopping, dusting, and vacuuming if necessary. All furniture must be reset and placed in the rooms it was assigned to and college owned refrigerators must be defrosted and cleaned prior to leaving. 

All non-graduating students must check-out no later than Saturday, May 14 at noon.  Graduating students must check-out within 2 hours after their commencement ceremony concludes.  Students have two(2) options to check out of their assigned space:  

  • A standard check-out can be completed daily from 10am-10pm by going to the front desk of your building and a staff member will start that process. 

  • An express checkout can be completed by obtaining an express check-out form or envelope at the front desk of your building.  The express checkout can be done at any time by following the instructions on the form and returning any applicable keys and the form to the front desk.  Express Check-out damage assessments will be completed after your departure and students waive their right to appeal of any billed charges.  

Donation Bins will be placed at the front of Residence halls for reusable items you wish to donate starting the week of May 2. 

Final mail delivery will be Friday, May 13. All mail received after that date will be forwarded or returned to the sender. 

For any questions please see your Residence Hall Director, Resident Assistant, or Village Community Assistant.

Fall Semester Move Out

Prior to leaving residence halls, students are reminded to close and lock windows, empty wastebaskets, dispose of food that may spoil, unplug electrical appliances, turn off lights and alarm clocks, remove holiday decorations, generally clean the room, and lock the door. Students will be billed for trash left in the room.  All pets must be removed from the residence hall during winter break.

Special precautions will be taken by the College to ensure building security. Residence hall staff members will thoroughly check all resident rooms after the building has been closed to make certain that rooms are secured and that there are no obvious hazards. Any room entry after closing will be documented with a note informing the residences of the times, date, and reason for entry. Also, the residence halls are patrolled regularly by University Police during the recess period and any unauthorized persons entering, attempting to enter, or found in the building will be subject to arrest. Students should be aware that any materials which violate State laws or College regulations will be confiscated and not returned, and may lead to disciplinary action.
