Move-out Information

Farewell Mustangs! Before you leave campus housing, see the guides below to learn how to check out properly. This will ensure a smooth transition and avoid room charges.


If you are not staying on campus next quarter for an approved reason, come to Housing Administration (Bldg. 31) by Friday, Dec. 8, 2017, to cancel your winter housing. See the terms and conditions of your Housing License Agreement for approved reasons.

The cancellation deadline for spring quarter is March 2, 2018.


Start packing and taking things home now! Moving boxes can be purchased at Canyon Post, Campus Market, and the University Store.
  • Trash: Dumpsters will be added throughout University Housing. Please place all trash in dumpsters and large trash bins. DO NOT leave trash in stairways, hallways, study lounges, common-area trash bins.
  • Clothing & Food Drive: A food and clothing drive is happening during move out. Donate items you don’t need (i.e. clothes, food, electronics, small furniture items, etc.) at your building’s drop-off location, which will be indicated by posters and via email.
  • Loading: During finals week, temporary loading is permitted in lots near residence halls and apartments. Please move your vehicle after you load your car. In PCV only, 40-minute curbside loading will be available during move-out. All red zone and metered parking rules apply.


Cleaning supplies are available at your front desk! Your room should be in the same state it was when you moved into it. Clean these areas:

  • Window sills
  • All assigned furniture (put back in original layout)
  • Kitchen, including inside of refrigerator and freezer
  • Trash and recycle bins (empty them!)
  • Remove any decals, tape, tacks, etc.


Once your room is completely ready for checkout, go to your community front desk with your keys and key card. Be prepared for a slight delay should the staff be busy checking out other students. Failure to checkout or follow procedure will result in an Improper Checkout Fee of $25, in addition to any charges associated with damages, cleanliness, lost keys or access cards.
