Circles Check-in and Check-out


Fall semester residents may not check-in prior to the published check-in date for the Fall semester (see Important Dates).

New Spring semester residents (including students returning to campus from Study Abroad, LA, London, and NYC programs) may not check-in prior to the January Move-In Day (see Important Dates).


Fall semester residents who will not be living on campus during the Spring semester (e.g., December graduates, Study Abroad, LA, London, and NYC programs), must check-out by the Residence Hall Closing Date for Winter break (see Important Dates). 

All Spring semester residents must check-out by 5:00 pm on June 30. The days between June 30 and the published Fall check-in date are needed to conduct damage assessments, make necessary repairs, and prepare apartments for new residents.

You may check-in or check-out of your Circle Apartment at the Circles Community Center office during business hours.

Between Apartments

When you are required to check-out, you are responsible for managing your belongings between the date you check-out and the date that Circle Apartments are available for check-in. The college does not have storage space for students’ personal items.

Some students return home for the days between the required Summer check-out date and Fall check-in date while others sublet off-campus. Students who are attending Summer Sessions or working on the Ithaca College campus can arrange for Summer Housing through the Conference and Event Services Office.
