Spring Closing Information

The end of the spring semester will soon be here! The last day of class is Friday, April 30, and finals will occur Monday, May 3 through Friday, May 7. University Housing will close Saturday, May 8; all students must check out of their rooms by 2:00 p.m.

  • Complete your room checklist and sign the back of the form
  • Remove all personal items and trash from the room
  • Lock your windows and door
  • Pick up mail and packages; remember to update your address in LionPath and use the appropriate shipping address for online purchases or recurring shipments.
  • Drop your form and room key at the designated key drop in your building any time or at the HFS Office between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Failure to return your room key will result in a recore fee.
  • Grab a bite to eat or stock up on snacks and drinks for your trip; the spring semester Campus Meal Plan ends at 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 9, and any remaining dining dollars will be forfeited at that time.

The University has partnered with College Boxes to provide a storage and shipping option for students. Find out more at

Additional guidelines for move-out:

  • Coordinate your move-out time to be different than your roommate and suitemates.
  • Consider departing during slower times, such as before 10:00 a.m. or after 7:00 p.m.
  • Pack your items in advance so your ride won't have to wait when they arrive.
  • Do not linger in the buildings.
  • No guests are permitted in the residence halls - the University's "no guest" policy is still in effect. When necessary, a student may have one individual assist with removing items from a student's room. This individual may not assist with packing, only with moving items from room to vehicle.
  • All individuals must follow Penn State protocols for masking and physical distancing while on campus. 
  • Any person who is feeling ill or exhibiting symptoms should not travel to campus
  • When your roommate is moving out and has one guest assisting, please consider spending that time in a different location to reduce possible exposure.
