Graduating Seniors

We understand that graduating seniors may need some extra time to move out of their room. If you are a graduating senior, you will need to sign up for a check out time on or before 12 p.m. on the Monday immediately following commencement. Email the Resident Director of your building to notify them and schedule a check out time.

Other Circumstances

If you have an extenuating circumstance that requires you to stay on campus longer than 24 hours after your last final exam or after Friday at 11:59 p.m., you may request a check out extension. Please email your Resident Director with your request and an explanation of the special circumstance. Please note that some requests may not be able to be accommodated.

Check Out Procedure

All students will be contacted by their Resident Director with information on the process of checking out of their respective hall or apartment. Please be aware that procedures may differ slightly between halls, so if you have questions, please contact your Resident Director.

Check Out Procedure

In general, you will need to sign up for a check out time at your hall office that is within 24 hours of your last final exam. At the time of check out, all of your individual belongings (not your roommate's) need to be out of the room. You will have your room access on your ID card deactivated and if you live in Panther Village or the Apartments you will turn in your mail key. If you have a microfridge from Affordable Installations, please unplug and clean it, and tag it with your name. It will be picked during the weekend immediately following spring finals.

Any damage to your room will be assessed after all students have moved out of the room. If you know of damage at the time of your check out, please tell the person assisting you and have it noted on your inventory form. Any unclaimed damage may be charged equally to all roommates' student accounts.

The check out process should take approximately 5-10 minutes.
