    TIP: You will receive an email confirmation from eLiving when staff process your check-out, this email indicates that your room key was received by the Commons Desk. Make sure that you receive that email when you return your room key - do not leave the desk until you receive the email confirmation.
  • Too many items to take home?
    • Consider a donation of items to Goodwill. There will be Goodwill collection bins available in every residence hall between April 25 - May 8.
    • A storage option is available through Storage Squad; be sure to contact them by April 29 to make arrangements.
  • Once you officially check-out of Housing, your building clearance will be turned off and your Campus Meal Plan will no longer work.

Guidelines for spring Move Out

  • Plan your departure and travel arrangements - all students must be moved-out by 4:00 p.m. either Saturday May 7 (East Halls residents) or Sunday May 8. 
  • Coordinate your move-out time to be a different time than your roommate, suite-mates, or apartment-mates
  • Consider departing during slower times, such as prior to 10:00 a.m. or after 7:00 p.m.
  • Pack your items in advance! Be prepared for when your ride arrives, so they do not have to wait
  • Visitors may park temporarily in lots around residence halls, but must have flashers on and leave within 20 minutes.
