Check Out Procedure: Before you leave campus, you must check-out with a hall staff member when you are ready to leave.

  2. Sign your Room Inventory Form
  3. Drop your room key off with the front desk worker

Keys: Your room key must be turned into a hall staff member before departing from campus. Do not mail keys after you have left. If you do not turn in your key prior to departing, you will be charged a fee for re-coring your room.  

Mail: Please forward your mail to your permanent address. Please stop placing online orders by May 1. We cannot forward any packages unless it’s United States Postal Service (USPS) and there will be a delay between arriving at the residence hall and forwarding to your home address. Non-USPS Packages that are not picked up will be considered abandoned property  

Abandoned Items/Recycling: If you have items (clothing, small appliances) and non-perishable food that you do not wish to take home, please consider donating these items. Check at your  residence hall desk for the donation site for your building. Donated items will be given to local charities.
