SPRING CLOSING AND CHECK-OUT INSTRUCTIONS


Residence halls close at 11:00 am on Friday, May 7, 2021.   

EXPRESS CHECK-OUT is your procedure for returning your keys and checking out of your room. 

Express Check-out: 

  1. Remove all personal belongings from room and return room to configuration that it was found in at move-in 
  2. Once all personal belongings are removed and room has been cleaned, pick up an express check-out envelop from the RA/Front desk of your residence hall 
  3. Place key(s) in envelope, fill out required information, sign and seal envelope and drop into the express check-out lock box located at the Osprey Hall help desk, the Pelican RA Office, or return your envelope to the housing and residence education office during business hours.  
  4. Enjoy your Summer! Go Bulls!  

All rooms will be inspected the week after commencement by a Room Assessment Team - a team of individuals from the residential education staff and/or facilities services staff.  This is the final inspection and assessment for damages.  Charges for excessive cleaning, removal of personal property, and loss or damage caused by residents are billed directly to the resident responsible.  In the event that two or more residents occupy the same room or suite and it cannot be ascertained which resident is responsible for the damage, the assessment is made against both or all equally. 

WHAT HEALTH AND SAFETY MEASURES ARE BEING IMPLEMENTED FOR MOVE OUT? 

  • Residents will be permitted two guests to assist with their move-out.  
  • No children or pets are permitted. Only certified service animals are allowed.   
  • To speed up your move-out, we recommend bringing your own cart(s) if needed. We will not be checking out move out carts this year.    
  • Residents and their move-out assistants will be expected to follow CDC guidelines and any state, county, or city orders at all times. This includes bringing and wearing personal protective equipment (face coverings and/or gloves), practicing social distancing and frequently washing hands when in the buildings.    
  • Residents are strongly encouraged to follow CDC social distancing guidelines when utilizing elevators. Limiting passengers is ideal. Use a covered hand or elbow to press the buttons.
