Penalties will be enforced if students do not vacate their respective residential college or apartment area by the designated times. Students remaining for summer school who have signed-up for summer housing by May 1 can remain in their spring assignments until the moveover day at no additional charge. After May 1, there is an additional charge of $100.


All students are required to leave their residences in a clean and orderly condition, and follow the proper checkout procedures set forth by the Department of Housing and Residential Life Office. HRL does not provide storage for student belongings, and there are multiple options for students to select from when considering how to store or move their belongings out of the residential areas. Goodwill Industries South Florida will place donation collection trailers outside of each residential area and will accept donations from April 29 - May 15 between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. Residents should not leave items at the dropoff locations outside of this timeframe.
