Move-In and Move-Out Information

Move-Out Information for Spring 2019

Move-Out can be a stressful time for students and families.  Campus Housing and Residence Life want to make this process as smooth as possible.  Students should plan to check out of their residence hall or historic home 24 hours after their last final exam.  A final exam schedule can be found here. All halls and houses close on May 3, 2019 at noon except for those who are graduating.  Graduates must check out by May 12, 2019 at noon.

Parking Information for move out can be found here.

Residence Life will be hosting floor/ house meetings to discuss the specific process for move out but here are a few general guidelines:

  • Remember, as stated in the Guide to Residence Living, that during final exams quiet hours will be in effect 24 hours a day until the halls officially close. Quiet hours begin on April 25, 2019.
  • The Office of Sustainability will be leading a donation drive where students can donate gently used or unopened items.  Please look out for emails about this drive and help keep usable items out of the landfills.
  • Students should consider taking home unneeded items during spring break or other trips home so there is less to move out at the end of the year.
  • All rooms and houses need to be left in move in condition.  All provided furniture needs to be present and in the same location as it was upon move in. 
  • Before you leave campus you must check out with a Residence Life staff member and return all keys/ fobs that have been issued to you.  Each residence hall has a 24 hour key drop box where you will return your keys/ fob.

Move-In Information for Fall 2019

Detailed information about move in will be available June 1, 2019.  As a reminder each student will be assigned a specific move in time frame that will be emailed out to them.  Below are the general dates and times of move in.  Incoming students should not assume a move-in date based on their hall preferences, instead they should wait until their room assignment is sent out to make move in plans.
