  • If your last final exam is scheduled in the afternoon, you are to move from the halls before 9 a.m. of the following day.

  • Kennedy Hall residents who have not signed up for interim housing must also move out of the hall according to the schedule above or risk having entry to the room electronically blocked, as these rooms will be assigned for summer housing.

  • The last meal served in the dining hall is dinner on Friday, May 9.

Check Out

Each resident must arrange to have her/his room inspected by a staff member. The following must be done before contacting your Resident Assistant to check out:

  • Turn in your mailbox key to the post office. (Your key deposit will be returned at that time.)

  • Remove all decorations from windows, doors, etc.

  • Remove all personal furnishings.

  • Empty and clean all areas. Sweep and mop room floor (do not sweep trash into the hallway).

  • Clean suites, bathrooms and common areas (Archuleta, Melody and Viles & Crimmin Residence Hall).

  • Place all trash in trash bins. (Large items should be taken to the outside dumpsters.)

  • Close and lock windows and turn off the lights.

  • All furniture assigned to the room must be in place before you check out.

  • Your keycard will deactivate on Friday, May 9, 2014 @ 8 p.m

    • Failure to check out properly will result in an improper checkout charge of $100.

    • Failure to clean the room before moving out will result in a minimum $75 charge for cleaning.

    • All rooms will be thoroughly inspected for cleanliness, damages and missing items.

    • All damage charges assessed as a result of this inspection, will be billed to the student.

    • If you checkout improperly, YOU CAN STILL BE ASSESSED DAMAGE CHARGES ONCE THE ROOM HAS BEEN INSPECTED BY STAFF!
 IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO SCHEDULE A CHECK OUT AND KEEP YOUR APPOINTMENT!

Please remember to always lock your room door whenever you are not in the room.  Also, do not load your car the night before leaving the campus.

  • This is a prime time for thefts from rooms and vehicles.
Don’t forget to return your 2014-2015 housing application and contract. (Contracts received after May 9 will require the $200 application fee.)
