Move Out Guide

Details subject to change. Updated August 3, 2021.

Limiting the number of people on campus is an important measure to reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19 for both our residents and staff. Our phased and systematic plan supports physical distancing, limits the number of people in each building, and monitors adjacent parking and loading areas.

See our COVID-19 Updates for more housing details and visit Safe Campus for the latest University information.

Plan Ahead

We to help you feel prepared for the end of the semester and the end of your housing contract (May 12 for residence halls; May 31 for Radius, Wilkins, and Yudof; July 31 for Keeler).

Work ahead as much as you can by sorting, cleaning, recycling, and packing in advance. Coordinate plans with roommates to clean shared spaces, be mindful of other student's final coursework and exams, and submit FIxIt requests now for any maintenance and repair needs. 

Moving Instructions

Follow these general tips to ensure a smooth move out. Continue to practice prevention strategies to keep yourself and others safe. Do not move out or have others assist you who have symptoms or concerns regarding exposure to COVID-19. 

Note: No more than two helpers per resident are permitted inside buildings for move out only.

Five Key Details

  1. Masks/face coverings are required outside of your assigned room/apartment (and inside when guests are present). 
  2. Bring your own packing materials - boxes, bins, bags (carts will be available). 
  3. Keep your U Card with you at all times for building access.
  4. Limit elevator occupancy to you and your helpers.  
  5. Return your keys to the Information Desk to complete your check out.

    Read each of the following dropdowns carefully.


    Parking near our halls and apartments is very limited, so please move as quickly as possible in order to free up parking spaces for others. You or your helpers should plan to pay for parking at either a campus ramp, campus meter, or a city meter. 

    DO NOT bring trailers to campus. They will not fit in the parking ramps, and there is insufficient space to accommodate them outside buildings. 

    Remember to return carts and keys to your building before leaving campus to complete checkout.

    Find details below about where you or your helpers can/can't park near your building during move out.
