Move-Out Procedures Between Now and 5 p.m. March 17

To Our Residential Students:

In light of the university’s move to remote learning for the remainder of the semester, we want to provide additional information regarding departure from the residence halls and other on-campus housing.

First, we realize the timing of this announcement means that many of you will not be able to return to campus over the next four days—or, even if you do, to be able to pack up all of your things while here.

To be clear: These four days will not be your only opportunity to complete your move-out process.

The directions that follow below apply to those moving out between now and 5 p.m. March 17.

We will provide additional guidance for those moving out after that time in a separate communication.

How to Check Out of Your Room

All checkouts are Express Checkouts. Residents can check out at any time, day or night, between now and 5 p.m. March 17.

Residents of Cutler, Clarke Tower, Hitchcock, Pierce, Norton, Raymond, Sherman, Smith, Stephanie Tubbs Jones, Storrs, Taft, Taplin, and Tyler—to complete a checkout you must:

  • Remove all belongings from your room
  • Clean and return the room to its original condition
  • Shut and lock your door
  • Checkout through My Housing. See step-by-step instructions on the University Housing website.

Note: You should only check out once you have removed ALL of your belongings from your room. Completing the online checkout will turn off card access to the room and building.

Residents of Alumni, Glaser, Howe, Kush, Michelson, Property Management Apartments, Staley, Tippit, The Village, Triangle Apartments, and all Greek Houses—to complete a checkout you must:

  • Remove all belongings from your room
  • Clean and return the room to its original condition
  • Shut and lock your door
  • Retrieve an envelope, available by the Express Checkout box for your Area.

  • On the envelope, please write your name (first and last), network ID, building, and room number
  • Seal the envelopes with a piece of tape (rolls provided near the Express Checkout boxes)
  • Put the completed envelope into the Express Checkout box

Staff will check for any damage and complete the room inventory in your absence. Please note that if your roommate/suitemate has done an Express Checkout, two staff members may enter at any time to check the condition of the space (they will, of course, knock first).
