WKU Residence Hall Move Out - Summer

Summer Move Out - How to Check Out of Your Residence Hall

All Residence Halls Close on Sunday, May 13, 2018 at 10:00 am

Step 1: Before Finals Week - Sign Up

Sign the checkout sheet to schedule the date and time you will be ready to have your room checked by your RA. If your RA is unavailable at the time you need to leave, sign up with another staff member.

Step 2: Prepare Your Room for Check-Out

  1. Remove all trash from your room. Take large items to designated dumpster near your hall. Do not leave trash in the building. Clean out the trash can.

  2. Remove ALL of your personal belongings from your room.

  3. Unbunk your beds and return your furniture to the original arrangement. Return the bunking pins to the front desk.

  4. Sweep your room. Mop the floor if necessary. Brooms and mops are available for checkout at the front desk.

  5. Close and lock windows.

  6. Set the thermostat to 72 degrees and the fan on auto -or - halfway in the blue section, fan on medium (depending on what kind of thermostat is in your room).

  7. Turn off lights.

Pro tip: Don't get stuck with a mess! Unplug your fridge in enough time to let it defrost before taking it home. 

Step 3: Check-Out with a Staff Member

Officially check-out with your RA by completing all of the paperwork and turning in the key to your RA. You must sign your paperwork to be officially checked out of the hall. You must turn in your key at the time of check-out to avoid an additional charge.

For Those Staying in Summer Housing

If you are moving directly into your summer residence hall room from your current assignment, you must be pre-registered at 18 Southwest Hall in the Housing & Residence Life office prior to Friday, May 11, 2018. For more information, please see your Resident Assistant or your Hall Director. You can also learn more on the Summer Housing Website.

If you are moving into the summer hall on another date later in the summer, no pre-registration is required.
