Moving Procedures

Spring Assignment to Summer Session One

Move-over to Summer Housing accommodations for residents staying for Summer Session One is dependent upon the vacancies and cleaning of the summer buildings. For this reason, residents should not make plans to move until contacted by Housing Services. Moves will occur as spaces become available.
  • All Summer Housing residents must move out of their spring assignment on the specified moving date as assigned by Housing Services.
  • Students can anticipate moving on May 27 and 28.
  • Do not leave campus before moving into your summer assignment. Residents who leave campus before moving into their summer housing are subject to a "per hour" moving charge if Housing Services is required to bag left over items in a living space. Housing Services is not responsible for bagged items. (Average charge is $200 and depends on the amount of time required to completely bag the items in the living space.)
  • Residents currently in university housing and moving into Summer Housing for Summer Session One receive an automatic extension to their current room. They are permitted to remain in their spring 2017 assignment until their official move-over date as assigned by Housing Services.
  • All rooms must be cleared of all personal belongings and left in a clean condition.

Leaving Summer Session One

Students only attending Session One are required to move out of Summer Housing by 12 pm on Saturday, July 1.  Keys must be returned to The Residence on Fifth Service desk or charges will be issued to students accounts for lost keys and lock re-cores.

Moving into Summer Session Two

Students attending only Session Two can expect to move into their Summer Housing assignment on Sunday, July 2 after 12pm.  Additional details will be provided in the email correspondence regarding key pick-up and check-in.

Leaving Summer Session Two

Summer Housing residents leaving after Session Two are required to move out of Summer Housing by 12 pm on Saturday, August 12.  All Summer assignment keys must be returned to The Residence on Fifth Service desk or charges will be issued to students accounts for lost keys and lock re-cores. 

If the student has an on-campus Fall 2017 assignment, dates/times of moving into that space will be coordinated via email through the Summer Assignments Staff at the beginning of August.  Please understand some spaces may not be ready on August 12 due to Conference Guests and facility work.  We ask that Summer students do not make arrangements to leave campus BEFORE they move into their Fall assignment.  Otherwise, Housing will bag the student's items and the student will be charged at minimal $200 depending upon on the amount of time required to bag the items in the living space. Housing Services is not responsible for bagged and moved items.
