Fall 2020 Residence Hall Move-Out Process

All students living on campus for the Fall 2020 semester must checkout of their fall room by 3:00 PM on Wednesday, November 25 unless they receive approval to stay.  The form to request to stay beyond Thanksgiving Closing is due Tuesday, October 20.  This form was emailed to all students currently living on campus.  

If you are returning to the same room/apartment for the spring semester:

  • We recommend that you take all of your items home with you.
  • If you cannot take all of your items home, pack and label all items you are leaving behind.  If you live in an apartment, please leave your packed items in your bedroom to aid in cleaning the common area.
  • Dispose of any trash and/or recycling at the designated area outside of the building.
  • Close and lock the windows, and patio/balcony door.
  • Once all items are completely moved out, lock the door, and place your key(s) in the move out envelope.
  • Return the envelope in the designated location:
    • Circles residents: Circles Mailroom
    • Gardens residents: Garden Mailroom (across from the laundry room)
    • East & West Tower residents: Residential Life office located on the first floor of the East Tower

If you are NOT living in the same room/apartment for the spring semester:

  • Pack and take all of your items with you.
  • Dispose of any trash and/or recycling at the designated area outside of the building.
  • Rented microfridges should be emptied of all food and left plugged in.  The company will be working with the Ithaca College (IC) to pick it up at a later time.
  • Close and lock the windows, and patio/balcony door.
  • Once all items are completely moved out, lock the door, and place your key(s) in the move out envelope.

General Guidelines

  • For the week of Thanksgiving Closing, the weekly surveillance testing days have been moved to Monday, November 23 or Tuesday, November 24 so that you may complete your required test before departing from campus.

  • No guests or helpers are allowed in the building. Guests should remain outside and may help load the vehicle.

  • Remember to maintain physical distancing in the elevators (no more than 2 people in the elevator at one time). 

  • Always wear a face covering.  Masks are available in the East and West Tower elevator lobbies (second floor), the Circles Community Center, and the Garden 27 basement lobby.

For students moving out by Thanksgiving Closing (Wed. 11/25, 3:00 PM), an envelope will be taped to your door the week of November 16.
