Residents can check in to their room by reporting to their assigned hall on the designated date, at the designated time. At check-in, residents get their keys to open their room and other appropriate rooms. They will also review a Room Condition Report (RCR) on which the furnishings and condition of the room are noted. Residents should check this information closely for accuracy. Any discrepancies should be brought to the attention of a staff on duty before signing the RCR. This same sheet will be used at check-out to determine deficiencies in the room’s furnishings and/or condition

Failure to pay proper attention to check-in conditions may result in being fined for pre- semester damage. Damages occurring after check-in should be reported to residence halls staff as soon as possible.


Due to specific schedule to moving in, it is rarely ever possible to check in earlier than the date and time stated. Therefore, early arrivals need to make reservations in advance.


When residents move out of a room or leave at the conclusion of a semester,or resident has decided to move out due to personal reasons or has been issued an eviction from the college administratormust check out with a member of the residence hall staff. Residents are responsible for leaving the room in the condition it was in when they checked in. This includes cleaning the room and removing all trash. Students may be fined for improper checkout.

The staff will inspect each room and charges will be assessed for any damages, missing furnishings, or a room that is not clean. If any damage occurs during the course of occupancy, the resident should notify any staff on duty. Residents must also provide information regarding who is responsible for damage. If residents do not provide this information prior to leaving, they may be billed a pro-rate share of the damage assessment.

This checklist will ensure that you are completing each necessary step in the resident move-out process and the security deposit returned.

Below is a checklist of areas expected to be cleaned before you and your roommate check out on or before.

Day of move-out checklist:

  • Remove all trash and recycling from your room and place in designated locations; do not leave trash in hallways or other public areas (charges may be added to your account)
  • Restore your room to its initial condition at check-in
  • Be sure all residence hall furnishings are accounted for and left in the room (this includes: mattress pad, trash can and recycle bin)
  • Remove all personal belongings (double check all the drawers)
  • Vacuum or sweep the floor, including underneath the beds
  • Complete your check out

Be sure to surrender your key during the check out and turn them in at residence hall staff office


If room damage/s was not noted on your room condition report at the time of your check-in, it is considered your liability, and you will be charged for it, unless you can prove otherwise. Any charges for damage/s in a common area will be divided equally among all students in the floor, hall, or building. Additional cleaning and damage charges may be assessed after check out. (Please review the check-out procedures carefully and try to talk to your roommate to work out a fair cleaning arrangement.)
