Moving Out

As each academic term draws to a close, you will need to start thinking about your plans for the end of the semester.

Students will be receiving closing emails directly from our office with general closing information. Following the instructions provided by the Office of Housing and Residence Life will help ensure that your move-out goes smoothly.

At the end of the term, you will need to depart within 24 hours of your last final exam or by Friday, May 17, at 10:00 a.m.—whichever comes first.

Students graduating and graduation volunteers will need to depart by Sunday, May 19, at 10:00 a.m.
