Once you are officially checked out of the residence hall, you are not allowed back into the residence hall (unless previous arrangements have been made with the dean).

The residence halls are not equipped to store bikes in our facilities. We suggest reaching out to a friend in the area to store larger items.

Each resident should completely move out of the residence hall so that custodial can deep clean the rooms over the summer. Items left behind will be disposed of.

If you are leaving outside of the checkout table hours, please arrange to be checked out from residence hall staff at the checkout table during the last shift listed before your departure. (Example: if you leave at 5am, you can check out the night before during the checkout table hours and only have the essentials left in your room. All the other checkout steps should be complete).
