Preparing for Checkout

  • 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 checkout 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.

  • For students who live far from campus, contact storage facilities early to arrange for storage of your belongings over the summer if needed.


Planning for move-out now can help to avoid difficulties and improper checkout charges!

  • Remove all trash, debris and all belongings from your room/apartment/suite before your checkout with your RA by the checkout deadline.

  • Clean your room/apartment/suite before you leave.

  • Complete all aspects of the checkout process by your respective deadline (May 11 at 4 p.m.; or May 13 at 6 p.m. for seniors and commencement assistants).

  • Put your residence hall keys in a checkout envelope and return it to your RA before you leave campus.
