Fall Resident Check-Out Checklist

As you prepare to move out, here are a few things to remember:

All Halls and 10-Month Apartments

1.     Students must check out within 24 hours of their last exam, unless they have signed up at Residential Life for Winter/Summer Housing. Only students who have exams on Friday or Saturday morning are authorized to check out on Saturday by 3:00 pm.

2.     Sign up for a checkout time with your Resident Assistant (RA) or Hall Director (HD) starting the weekend before finals. Please do so at least 24-hours in advance. Remember staff members are also taking exams. If you fail to sign-up, you must wait for the next available staff member. If all times are taken for your floor’s RA or HD, you need to go to another staff member for an available time. The Residential Life office will NOT be able to complete your check out.

3.     Checkout for all residents includes cleaning and cleansing their room and bathroom, remove all items from the room (except when returning to the same room from Fall to Spring semester), and have their side of the room in order. Your room/apartment and bathroom must be clean and free of all trash. All personal belongings must also be removed before you checkout of your room. The RA/HD will not accept your key(s) nor check you out if you still have belongings in the room and the room is not clean. The main office cannot perform check-outs and will not accept keys. Do not leave your keys in your room, slide your key(s) under a door, leave them with your roommate, suitemate, or a friend—doing so will result in an improper checkout charge.

4.     Checkout for graduating students is Sunday, following graduation, by noon. Please remember to schedule a time with a staff member. If you fail to sign-up, you must wait for the next available staff member. The main office cannot perform check-outs and will not accept keys. Do not leave your keys in your room, slide your key(s) under a door, leave them with your roommate, suitemate, or a friend—doing so will result in an improper checkout charge.

5.     Students who are approved to remain on campus for Winter/Maymester Housing will be relocated at the earliest possible time. You will be contacted as soon as your Summer assignment is ready. Relocation will not affect the students in Bayou Village Apartments. Please note that all University policies and procedures are still in effect during Winter/Summer break housing.

6.     Winter/Summer Housing is available however, you must apply using an application, found at on our website or in the main office. Space is limited.

Please contact our office, at the information below, if you have any questions or concerns.

12 Month Apartments

1.     If you currently live in Bayou Village Apartments and have a 12-month contract (ending August 1st), you are not permitted to sub-lease your apartment, provide temporary housing, nor provide storage for a friend’s belongings during the Winter/Maymester/Summer break.

2.     Students must check out by August 1 by 3:00 pm, unless you are returning to the same apartment for the next academic year. If you are transferring to another unit on campus, you must be packed and ready on this date, as you should be moving in the following days.

3.     Sign up for a checkout time with your Resident Assistant (RA) or Hall Director (HD) starting a week before August 1st. Please do so at least 24-hours in advance. If you fail to sign-up, you must wait for the next available staff member. If all times are taken for your floor’s RA or HD, you need to go to another staff member for an available time. The Residential Life office will NOT be able to complete your check out.

4.     Checkout for all residents includes cleaning and cleansing their room and bathroom, remove all items from the room and unit, and have their side of the room in order.

The RA/HD will not accept your key(s) nor check you out if you still have belongings in the room and the room is not clean. The main office cannot perform check-outs and will not accept keys.
