All students, including Graduating Seniors, must completely empty their rooms of their personal belongings before checking out with the Residence Life Staff. See Check-out Options page for proper check-out procedures. Any items left will be discarded, and residents may be charged (View FAQs for more details). Dumpsters will be placed in the vicinity of the residence halls for easy trash disposal. All students should throw away the trash in the dumpsters provided before checking out of their room/suite/apartment. Please also consider donating any items in good quality to a specific charity through the Office of Social Justice.
Preparation of your Room/Suite/Apartment
All rooms must be cleaned, swept, wiped down and mopped before leaving campus. This includes floors, desks, dressers, closets, cabinets, microfridges, common areas, bathrooms, kitchens, walls, ceilings, etc. Residence Life Staff will have limited cleaning supplies for students to use in the residence halls. The furniture in all rooms must be reassembled, if necessary, and rearranged back to the original layout from August move-in.

Damage Responsibility Form

Any damages not listed on the Damage Responsibility Form that are found during check out will be divided up among the residents of the room/suite/apartment. The cost associated with repairing the damage(s) will be divided up and charged to each resident.
