Move In/Out

(all students must check out at semester break*)

Residence hall students are not required to take their belongings home for winter break, unless they are leaving the univeristy.  HOWEVER, residents do need to check out with their resident assistant to ensure their semester break checklist is complete. The key to a successful semester break checkout for students leaving for winter break, is planning ahead.  Make arrangements for your packing and leaving times according to your finals schedule, and the schedule of your resident assistant.  Please be prepared by completing the end of semester checklist provided to you by your resident assistant at your wing meeting in December.  All traditional hall students must vacate their rooms 24 hours after their last final.  Finals are Monday, December 14 through Friday, December 18.  The residence halls close at 6:00 p.m, Friday, December 18.

If you are unable to check out and leave the hall by 6:00 p.m, Friday, December 18, please contact your resident director by Thursday, December 10 to make arrangements to stay longer.

*NOTE: Southwest Hall, Rountree Commons, Bridgeway Commons, and Cooper Living Learning Center remain open for all breaks, but you must register on-line to preserve access during break periods. 

Questions about the semester break checkout process should be directed to the resident assistant, or resident director of the building in which the resident lives.


Students who are withdrawing from or leaving the university due to study abroad, student teaching, co-op, internship, military service or graduation, no matter what time of year it is, will need to arrange a checkout appointment with their resident assistant.  The checkout appointment must be scheduled 24 hours in advance, to give the staff member ample time to gather pertinent paperwork to check a student out of their residence hall room.  This paperwork includes a change of address card for mail forwarding, room check form to assess damages, and a withdrawal form (if necessary).  All paperwork must be complete prior to the student checking out of the residence hall room, or a possible improper check out fee may be assessed.  


Second semester move in for new and transfer students begins on Thursday, January 14 at 10:00 a.m. and continues throughout the weekend of January 15 through January 18. Please check-in between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. as our staff will be available during those times to assist with the check-in process.  Moving into the residence halls is an exciting part of coming to college!  We are pleased to welcome you to your on-campus living experience.While we have processes set up to make moving in as easy as we can, please remain flexible as there are a number of students excited to be moving to campus.  Please refer to your residence hall webpage and Welcome eNewsletter  for specific move-in instructions.  In addition, please read the Department of Residence Life Guide to Living On Campus to answer many of the questions you may have about what to bring to make your hall room your new home.

A student staff member will be assisting with the check-in of your room.  Take the time to thoroughly inspect your room for existing damages using the room condition form as a guide. List all existing damages upon your check-in on the room condition report. Notify your RA of any room damages immediately. The listing of room damages is important, as you will be personally responsible for any damages found at the time of your check-out from the room. Sign and date the Room Check Form upon your check-in.

The Welcome eNewsletter will be available on our website with specific details on check in, lofts, futons, bike lockers, and various other information as move-in approaches.  Beginning on December 1, you can sign up if you need to arrive early to campus, because of New Student Registration or placement testing, by submitting our early arrival form.


Move in for new stduents begins on Friday, Sept. 2, 2016, and for continuing students on Saturday, Sept.3, 2016.  More information will be posted on this website as we move closer to Welcome Weekend and Move-in for fall 2016.
