Moving out of your residence hall

Students must move out of their residence hall starting March 19. Students will sign up for their move out time slot. There are two hour time slots in which you can move out of their room. The time slots are: 7:00-9:00 a.m, 9:00-11:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m., 1:00-3:00 p.m., 3:00-5:00 p.m, and 5:00-7:00 p.m. Students must move out at the time you sign up for only. Do not travel to campus until it is time for your assigned move out slot. Any guests coming to help you move out of your room must be symptom free. 

Sign Up for a Move Out Time Slot


Room Check Out, Processes, and Parking

When students arrive for their assigned move out slot, they will complete an express checkout process as described below:

  1. Remove all belongings from your room.
  2. Lock your room door.
  3. Take your room key to your mailbox and place it in the Express Checkout envelope that will be in your mailbox labeled with your name.
  4. Deposit your room key in the return location, indicated by signs in the lobby.
  5. Return carts.
  6. Your room will be checked for damages after you check out. If there are damages you will receive that information by email.

As a reminder all bikes, mopeds, and vehicles must be taken home with you when you move-out of the residence halls.

Students moving out on the east side of campus are instructed to park in the North Campus parking ramp, instead of on the street. Students moving out on the west side of campus are instructed to park at the metered spots surrounding your residence hall. Mayflower residents are instructed to park in the north metered lot or in the back parking lot behind the hall.

All MicroChills will need to be left in your room. After you move, University Housing and Dining staff will reallocate your MircoChill. There are no refunds for MicroChill units as the refund deadline has passed.

How to Clean Your MicroChill Unit

  1. Clean inside of microwave.  If your microwave is dirty, you can put a cup of water inside for 1 minute to loosen stuck-on food.
  2. Unplug refrigerator from wall.
  3. Remove all food items.
  4. Leave refrigerator and freezer doors open and allow inside of refrigerator and freezer to defrost.
  5. Once the inside of the refrigerator and freezer is at room temperature, clean the inside and outside with mild soap and water.
  6. Remove the drip tray at the back of the unit, make sure to lift up and pull out, clean and dry drip tray before placing inside microwave.
  7. Thoroughly dry inside and outside of unit with clean towel.

Moving carts are being sanitized prior to and after use. In addition, residence hall elevators can only hold one or two carts comfortably, which naturally reinforces social distancing.

Spaces such as restrooms are being cleaned and disinfected per the university’s standard protocol, with more attention being paid to commonly used touchpoints like elevators and door handles.

Students and their families are also designated two-hour timeslots in order to move items out of their room to assist the team in accounting for the number of residents, elevators in the building, and parking.

An express checkout process was developed so students don’t have to interact with anyone at the desk unless they choose to. Keys are also being placed in an envelope and turned into a designated mail slot.

Additionally, volunteers will not be present during move-out. University Housing and Dining staff are also following Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines, which include washing their hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after blowing their nose, coughing, or sneezing; and using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
