Move Out Information

AS THE ACADEMIC YEAR is coming to a close, we would like to provide you with information about the closing of the residence halls and apartments so that you will know what to expect as you prepare for check out. We highly recommend that you check your Finals Schedule and arrange to move out as soon as you are done with your last final. We have heard from residents and their families that students who move-out shortly after their last final are less stressed. Checking out earlier in the week also helps you avoid weekend traffic and parking congestion from Commencement Services, waiting on staff to complete the room inspection, and other miscellaneous delays. Seniors in the residence halls that are graduating will need to make arrangements with their Resident Director for extended move-out.

Move-out Tips

  • Start packing as soon as possible
  • Order packing boxes & supplies now
  • If you are going home at any time before the end of the school year (Memorial Day Weekend, etc.) start taking items with you
  • If family members come visit you, send things home early with them
