Move Out

When do I move out of the Spring Semester

24 Hours after your last Final Exam, or by 12 p.m. on *Thursday, May 6 2021, whichever comes first.

*Graduating seniors may complete an Extended Stay Form starting April 22, 2021 for an extension until 2pm on Saturday May 8, 2021. No exceptions will be made. Minimester students with minimester housing are automatically approved for extended stay.

General Procedures
  • Thoroughly clean your room to avoid cleaning/damages charges.
  • Move all of your belongings out of your room and building.
  • Return all university furniture to its original location.
  • Donation collection will be available in the hall lobby.
  • Clean/Defrost any University/MicroFridge Refrigerator
  • Sign and date the checkout memo on your room or apartment door.
  • Turn in any hard keys to the front desk.
  • Self check-out of your room through MyHousing.
  • CLs will complete room inspection after you have departed.
  • Students are charged for room damages and/or improper checkout if student does not self checkout.

All residents must complete a self check-out through MyHousing at least 24 hours after they move out of their room. Residents who do not self check-out will be issued an improper check-out fee.

When vacating their room, students should return all furniture to its original location. Residents should thoroughly clean the room and remove any decals, tape, sticky tack, etc. from the inside and outside of the room, door, and closet woodwork. Residents may check out a broom or vacuum cleaner at the front desk; however there is a limited supply of these items and there may be a waitlist. Students are responsible for the cleanliness of their room regardless of the availability of cleaning items at the front desk and are advised to plan accordingly. All trash and abandoned items should be taken to the nearest outdoor dumpster. If the dumpster is full, trash should be bagged and placed next to the dumpster.

Any questions about the check-out process can be directed to the Community Leader or Residence Hall Director.

Summer Storage

When move-out time arrives the inevitable question asked is, “What do I do with all my stuff?” Whether for a few weeks or the entire summer, students are faced with the challenge of renting a storage unit or hauling or borrowing a truck, or paying for more storage space than needed. Campus Crates from The UPS Store has a solution with Summer Storage! We pick up students’ items, store them in our climate-controlled warehouse, and deliver them to the new residence. To make this service even sweeter we give you the storage boxes for free! For students returning to campus their items will be waiting for them in their room when they arrive. We are located across the street from campus on 8th street. Check out details and secure your spot for free at Campus Crates or call 254-300-8641.

The following areas of each room will be inspected for cleanliness and damage:

  • Bookshelves
  • Window sills
  • Desk drawers
  • Chest of drawers
  • Closet shelves
  • Desk and chair
