Moving Out

east-campus-sunset

The residence halls close at the end of the spring semester. Here’s your guide to getting moved out and ready for your next adventure!


When do I move out?

Plan to move out within 24 hours of your last final unless you've signed up for summer housing in New Residence Hall. Sign up for a checkout appointment with your CA at least 24 hours before your last final. Finish everything on the checklist below before your appointment.

If you signed up for the spring-to-summer transition session in New Residence Hall, you will move from your spring room to your summer room in New Residence Hall East on Tuesday, May 14, from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Can I stay late?

If you're graduating or have another reason to stay late, make a late stay request in the weeks before move-out day.

Will there be move-out parking?

Special 30-minute move-out parking will be available during finals week. Look for specially-marked 30-minute spaces near your residence hall. Do not use reserved, service or handicap spaces unless you have a permit to use one of those spaces. Metered spaces must be paid.

What is my room's original furniture layout?

Remember to put the furniture in your room back into its original layout. If you had your bed lofted at the beginning of the year, you don't need to change how it's lofted before moving out. See the furniture layout for your room type:
