Move-Out Tips and Reminders

  • Speak with your roommates about your move-out plans to decide who will be responsible for cleaning common area spaces (bathrooms, sinks, cabinets, etc.). If the common areas in your unit are not cleaned, all roommates will incur a cleaning fee, regardless of who moved out last.
  • Please remember parking is still enforced during Move-Out; please park your vehicle in your permitted area or you may receive a citation.
  • Protect your property – Many thefts and other campus crimes occur during this time of the year. Avoid leaving personal possessions unattended or in the hallways while you are in transit. Also, remove any bikes from the outside bike racks before you leave.
