Preparing for Check-out

  • Purchase any necessary cleaning supplies, moving boxes, packing totes, trash bags, etc.

  • Take personal items you no longer need home over Easter Break and the last few weekends of the semester

  • Inform parents and family of the check-out deadlines so they can come to campus and assist with your move-out if needed.

  • Bring a hand-truck and storage containers from home to ease and speed up your move-out process if needed.

  • If you live in a suite or apartment, remember to discuss who will clean the bathroom, kitchen and common room before students begin moving out.
