Residents who are not continuing their residency for the following semester must check-out properly within 24 hours after their last final exam and no later than the day after finals end at noon. Failure to check-out properly may result in being charged a $75 Improper Checkout fee and an additional $60/day late stay fee if staying beyond the move-out date(s) as listed above.
Your room/suite/apartment will be inspected after you leave by our staff.
In the two weeks leading up to your departure, complete the Cleaning Agreement form with your roommates and provide a copy to the RA before exam week.
TIP: If possible, arrange to check-out with your roommates to avoid confusion over who is responsible for any damage. All common area damage is divided among all residents as appropriate. Any arrangements made for cleaning/damage responsibility should be in writing and attached to your Cleaning Agreement.
When you check-out, move-out, change rooms, or leave University Housing:
- Remove everything from your bedroom & apartment. University Housing is not responsible for abandoned items.
- Completely clean your bedroom, bathtub, sink, toilet, oven, stove, microwave, and refrigerator, mop all floors, etc., and return all furniture to its original location.
- Use the express check-out process and return your key, access card, mailbox key, and parking hangtag at the time of check-out.
- Be sure to fill out a forwarding address form at your mailroom to forward your mail to your new residence.
