Policies and Procedures

Checking Out

Fall residents, including residents of Circle and Garden Apartments, who will not living on campus for the Spring semester (e.g., study abroad, December graduates) must check out by the published Fall closing date. During the academic year, residents will be apprised of the date and time by which they must check out for room changes and other circumstances.

Spring residents, excluding residents of Circle Apartments, must check out by the published closing date for the Spring semester or the Late Departure date approved by the Office of Residential Life. Spring residents of Circle Apartments are required to check out by July 8th unless they have the same room assignment in the Fall (squatters).

Regular Checkout: Simply return your room, suite, or apartment and mail keys to the appropriate Area Office during office hours. Be sure you sign the key record form which indicate your keys were returned. SPECIAL NOTE: Resident Assistants do not under any circumstance determine what will be assessed a damage charge.

Escorted Checkout: Contact your Residence Director and schedule an appointment for a walk-through (students who fail to complete and submit a Room Condition Report (RCR) or Apartment Condition Report (ACR) may not elect this checkout option as they have waived their right to appeal damage charges). Based upon staff availability, a professional staff member will inspect your room suite, or apartment, and will indicate items for which you will be billed (you will only be billed for item(s) noted during this inspection). Once the inspection is complete, return your keys to them and be sure to sign the key record form indicating your keys were returned.
