Residents Remaining in their Space

Move-out Time Slot

Residents who need move-out assistance can sign-up for a 2-hour time slot to allow two move-out guests to help. Please visit the housing portal and select appointments in the top menu to sign-up. 

Things to know about move-out time slots

  • Residents who do not need move-out helpers do not need to sign-up for a time slot. Only residents who need move-out helpers should sign-up.
  • Residents will only be able to sign-up for one move-out time slot. It is highly suggested that residents have all their items packed before their move-out time slot starts to ensure they have all their items out of the building before their time slot ends.
  • Move-out guests must wear face coverings at all times and maintain physical distancing when possible.
  • Residents and their move-out guests should only ride the elevators with their party.
  • Move-out guests will be given wristbands at the start of the 2-hour time slot. Please keep these wristbands on during move-out. Move-out guests who do not have wristbands will be asked to leave the building.
  • Residents should have all their items packed before their move-out time slot starts

Quiet Hours 

24-Hour Quiet Hours Start May 5 at 9 p.m. During 24-Hour Quiet Hours, residents should keep noise to a minimum to allow their roommates and other residents to study and relax in preparation for exams. Residents who violate 24-Hour Quiet Hours will go through the conduct process.
