Step 1: Before Finals Week

Before finals week, sign up for a check out time with your Resident Assistant. If you do not sign up for a check out time, go to the desk and ask for a staff member to check you out. 


Step 2: Prepare Your Room

  1. Unplug and defrost your fridge. Make sure you have plenty of time to do so, and use a towel to collect any excess water that drains.

  2. Remove all trash from your room. Take large items to designated the designated dumpster near your hall. Do not leave trash in the building. Clean out the trash can.

  3. Remove ALL personal belongings from your room.

  4. Unbunk your beds and return the furniture to the original arrangement. Return the bunking pins to the desk, if applicable.

  5. Sweep the room. Mop the floor, if necessary. Brooms and mops are available for checkout at the front desk.

  6. Close and lock windows.

  7. Depending on what thermostat is in your room, set the thermostat to 72 degrees and the fan to auto - or - halfway in the blue section, fan on medium.

  8. Turn off the lights.


Step 3: Check Out with a Staff Member

  • Officially check out by meeting in person with a Resident Assistant while they inspect your room.

  • You must be present during the check out process.

  • You must turn in your key at the time of check out to avoid an additional charge.


If you are moving directly into your summer residence hall room from your current assignment, you must be pre-registered in the Housing & Residence Life office prior to Friday, April 30, 2021.

For more information, please see your Resident Assistant or your Hall Director.

If you are moving into the summer hall on another date later in the summer, no pre-registration is required.
