Whenever you move out of on-campus housing or leave for a break, there’s information you need to know and a process to follow. Check out the links below for specific dates associated with the time you plan to leave. Keep reading for details about how to check out.


How to move out 

Note: Your contract is for the academic year. If you plan to move out after the fall semester, you must review the cancellation process and follow the proper procedures to cancel your contract. There are penalties associated for non-academic cancellations.

If you do not follow all check-out procedures or you do not check out by the assigned deadline, you will be charged a $50 improper check-out fee. You may also face lock change charges and, depending upon the time of year, you may also continue to accrue daily room and board charges until you have officially checked out.
