Move In & Move Out

Spring Closing 2017
All residents are required to vacate their residence halls 24-hours after their last exam. All spring residents will be moved out no later than Wednesday, May 3, 2017 at 12 p.m. University Housing will be conducting two different check out systems. Centralized Check Out will occur on the following dates and times. This has been organized to provide residents with a speedy and efficient checkout experience. University Housing encourages residents to perform their move out during these times when the front desk staff is increased and more available. The second option is checking out at the community desk at any time that is not during the centralized check out times.

Centralized Check Out

  • April 27-28: 12 p.m. to 8 p.m.
  • April 29 – May 2: 8 a.m. – 8 p.m.
  • May 3: 8 a.m. – 12 p.m.

University Housing will have move in bins available on the following dates and times. Move in bins can be rented from the centralized check out location in your residence hall. Residents who prefer not to utilize these bins or in case of bins being in use when they arrive should plan to bring something of their own to use to assist them with their move out process.

Bin Rental Check Out

  • April 29 – May 2: 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.
  • May 3: 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.

How to Formally Check Out of the Room

  • Remove garbage in or around the room and sweep and wipe all surfaces and floors.
  • Leave air conditioner running on 70 degrees cool.
  • Complete all cleaning tasks on the cleaning agreement. All cleaning agreements are due to RAs by April 21. If cleaning agreements are not turned in, any cleaning charges will be split among all residents of the room.

Please do not arrive before 8 a.m. on Saturday, May 6. University Housing working to transition the rooms as quickly as possible.

When residents arrive for check in, their first stop will be the check in station location inside the University Lofts lounge, which is located on the first floor of the University Lofts by the community desk. This is where residents will pick up their room key, access card and check in paperwork. In order to check in, residents will need their Panther ID card (new students will be able to use a U.S. state issued identification card, such as a driver’s license or military ID) for identity verification, so residents should be sure to have this with them when they arrive for check in.

Once residents arrive at the check-in area, University Housing requests that the resident be the only person who checks in while the driver secures a parking place to unload from. Residents should not begin to unload their belongings before they have picked up their key and access card.

In an effort to facilitate residents’ move in, the Lofts Parking Deck will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday and 8 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Sunday for unloading. Please contact Campus Services at 404-413-9500 for information on parking outside of these hours.

Move in bins can be rented for a charge of $15.00 per hour. University Housing uses this program as a fundraiser for student activities throughout the academic year. Bin rental will be available on Saturday, May 6 and Sunday, May 7 from 8 a.m. – 7 p.m. All bins must be returned by 7 p.m. each day.
