Moving Out

End of Year Checklist

And in the blink of an eye, it is your last week on campus. With saying goodbye to friends and finishing up finals, you may forget some important tasks to do before you leave campus. We have gathered information from different campus departments here. Please connect with their website for more specific details.


Move out on time

Know when you will lose access according to the residential calendar:

  • If not staying for Short Term: April 14, 2019 at 5pm
  • Non-Seniors:  Saturday, May 25, 2019 at 5pm
  • Seniors: Sunday, May 26, 2019 at 5pm


Store your items

There is no storage available on campus during the summer. Students and families may contract with Dorm Room Movers for a full service pick up, storage, and drop off in the fall. Students may also see the Facility Services website for a list of local storage facilities. Students often share a space with others.



Donate your unwanted items to “Clean Sweep” by placing them in the designated area of your House or Hall. Every year students donate their unwanted items to help raise money for participating non-profits and reach our campus sustainability goals. Please see your custodian if you cannot locate this space where you live.


Take out the Trash

Take your trash and unusable items to the trash area. Anything left in a room trash can, on top of a room trash can, in a trash bag, or in the hallway is considered trash and will be disposed of. If you have large broken items please throw them out to avoid charges.



Ask your custodian for trash bags, brooms, or vacuums to make sure your room has been left in broom clean condition meaning:

  • free of all debris
  • free of personal effects
  • swept clean after their belongings have been removed


Return your Key

You should return your key to Campus Security before you leave to avoid late or rekeying fees. You should not leave your key in your room or give it to a friend to return. Check the Access Control website for information on the fees associated with not returning your key on time.


Return your library items

Make sure you return your library books and media to stay free of fees. You can see the Fines & Replacement costs on the Library website.


Know when you are coming back

You are able to move in on campus the Sunday before classes start. For the 2019-2020 academic year that is Sunday, September 1st. Check the calendar for more details.
