How to Move Out Gracefully (pdf)
When inspecting rooms at the end of the year, HOO staff members are looking for any missing furniture, damage incurred, or excessive cleaning needed. The basic things you must do before leaving are:
Additionally, you should consider the following:
Do not leave your keys in any location other than the HOO, including in your room or with a resident advisor or other student. You are solely responsible for ensuring your keys are returned to the HOO.
When you are ready to leave campus, you may formally check out of your room with HOO staff during our business hours (Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.). This is not required, but recommended if you are concerned about potential charges. Check-outs can only be done once all items have been removed from your room. HOO staff will compare the initial room contract you completed to the current room conditions and determine if you will be billed for any damages. At the end of the check-out, HOO staff will take your keys and lock the door to your room. Please be aware that there may be more of a wait for check-outs with HOO staff during busy move-out days.
If you are unable to empty your room fully during HOO business hours, you can ask a residence life staff member in your area office to look at your room by contacting that individual as listed below. The residence life staff member will review a check list with you to give you an idea of what you have done and what you still need to do in order to avoid damage and/or cleaning charges. It remains your responsibility to review move-out checklists yourself and make sure nothing gets missed. Once you are fully moved out, lock your door behind you and return your keys via the mail slot in the HOO entryway. Do not return your keys until you are ready to leave campus.The Dakin-Merrill Area office is located in the Dakin quad.
