Fall 2018 Move-Out Information

Housing for the Fall 2018 semester closes at noon on Thursday, December 13Fall Commencement participants have until Friday, December 14 at noon to leave for winter break.

Students who have signed up to remain in housing as part of winter intersession housing can remain in their fall assignments during the December 13 - January 8 period.


Room/Apartment Access During Winter Break

Residents of the residential colleges will not have access to their rooms once the buildings close, so they should bring any essential belongings with them (i.e. medication, passport, etc.).

University Village residents are able to have access to their apartments (at no additional cost) if they sign-up for winter intersession housing so that their 'Cane card access will continue during Winter Break.


Returning to Housing in Spring 2019

Resident students returning to their same on-campus housing assignments for the Spring 2019 semester do not need to move out their belongings for the winter break period. However, these resident students must:

  • Inform their Resident Assistant of when they are departing for Winter Break
  • Visit their residential college reception desk or the UV office to be "swiped out" of their Fall 2018 assignment.

If resident students have a temporary Onity or other access card or if they are checking out when the reception desk is closed for resident services, they must complete the checkout envelope and submit it via the drop-off box located at the lobby reception desk of their residential college or in the UV mailroom. 

  1. Pick up the checkout envelope at the reception desk/UV mailroom.
  2. Fill out the envelope completely.
  3. Include applicable temporary Onity cards in the envelope.
  4. Put the envelope in the drop-off box at the reception desk/UV mailroom

Securing Your Room for Winter Break

 For students who are returning to the same room for the spring semester, remember to:

  • Close all blinds.
  • Bag all trash and take to trash chute/room. Do not leave in hallway, stairwells, recycle rooms or your room.
  • Unplug all appliances (empty, defrost, dry & clean refrigerators).
  • Turn off the lights & leave A/C on low.
  • Close & lock your room door.
  • Remove fish & turn off tank.

The University assumes no liability for items left, and students should take valuable property home with them. HRL does not provide storage for student belongings, but there are multiple local options available for students who would like to store personal items off campus. 


Not Returning to Housing in Spring 2019

In order to be considered “checked out” of your room/apartment, all resident students who are not returning to housing for Spring 2019 must complete a checkout envelope and place it in the drop-off box located at the lobby reception desk of their residential college or in the UV mailroom. 

  1. Pick up the checkout envelope at the reception desk/UV mailroom.
  2. Fill out the envelope completely.
  3. Place any temporary Onity cards in the envelope.
  4. Put the envelope in the drop-off box at the reception desk/UV mailroom.

If there are room damages or other charges indicated during the post-checkout review of your room/apartment, those charges will appear on your student account within approximately two weeks.


Penalties and Fines

Penalties will be enforced if students do not vacate their respective residential college room or UV apartment by the designated times.

All students are required to leave their residences in a clean and orderly condition, whether they are returning to campus housing or not. Failure to do so will result in a fine.

Failure to follow the listed check out procedures will result in a $100 fine.
