  • Students are required to move out of residence 24 hours after their last exam and return keys to the Residence Office at that time, unless a Request for Late Move-Out Form has been approved or unless you’ve applied for summer accommodation.
  • Each student is required to complete the online Move-Out Confirmation Survey before the deadline. Students who do not complete the Move-Out Confirmation Survey by the deadline will be assigned a move-out date. Watch for updates on the Dates & Deadlines page.
  • Residence Team Members will pass key all rooms and perform Room Condition checks upon move-out.
  • Students may be charged additional fees for each day that they have not returned their keys after their move-out date.

Students leaving residence before the end of the academic year who do not complete a Withdrawal Notice by the October withdrawal deadline will be charged a $1,000 penalty and must provide the Residence Office with proof of withdrawal from all classes. Students who are not withdrawing from classes are responsible for the residence fees for the remainder of the academic year if a Withdrawal Notice is not submitted by the deadline.
  • Make sure your residence account is paid in full prior to leaving.
  • Before you return your keys - check to see you have no mail.
