Move Out

When do I move out?

24 Hours after your last Final Exam or by 12 p.m. on Tuesday, May 14, 2019*, whichever comes first.

*Graduating seniors may request an Extended Stay Form through their Hall Director or download it here.

General Procedures

  • Sign up for checkout with your Community Leader at least 24 hours in advance.
  • 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.
  • 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.

All residents must schedule a check-out inspection with their Community Leader at least 24 hours before they move out of their room. It is imperative that the student is present when the CL comes to check the room in order to resolve any issues that do not pass the check-out inspection. Residents who do not meet with their CL will be issued an improper check-out fee. If a student misses their scheduled check-out time or the student is not ready when the CL comes to inspect the room, the student forfeits his or her right to a CL inspection before check-out and any necessary damage charges will apply.

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 waiting list. 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.

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
  • Walls
  • Floors
  • Sinks, mirrors, medicine cabinets
  • Kitchen appliances (apartments only)
  • Bathroom sinks, toilets, and showers (suites, private baths, and apartments only)
Don't Forget!
  • Leave your mail key and a mail forwarding address with the Mail Center.
  • Take your bicycle or electric scooter with you.

If you want to leave your belongings in Waco over the summer, there are storage facilities located near the Baylor campus. No items may be left in the room.
