End of the Year Checkout

All students will need to properly check out of their rooms at the end of the Spring Semester. Failure to properly check out will result in a $25 Improper Checkout Fee.

How to Check Out

Students may check out of their rooms two different ways:

Schedule a check out time with your RA - Students wishing to check out of their room in person must schedule a time with their RA at least 24 hours in advance of their expected check out time. Your RA will meet with you at the scheduled time to assess the condition of the room and complete the Room Condition Report.

OR

Complete the Express Check Out Form - Students who choose to complete the Express Check Out Form (.pdf) instead of having their RA check them out of their room in person will simply need to complete the form and turn it in to their RA or the Office of Residence Life prior to leaving campus. Students that choose the express check out method forfeit the right to be present during final room inspection.
